I have loved creating these Easter freebies for you over the past few days. And I have loved even more sharing with you fun ways to play and learn with these little printables. There are so many easy ways to make learning hands-on and fun.
On Day #1, I shared with you an Easter Letters freebie, on Day #2, I shared an Easter Colours Freebie, on Day #3, we had an Easter Numbers freebie, and today is an Easter Learning game.
With this free Easter Printable Game, you will print off a total of 16 little cards (print two sets). There are eight different Easter pictures for you, such as a cute little bunny, an Easter egg, and so on.
Once these little cards are printed and cut out, you can play lots of different games.
How to Play and Learn with this Easter Learning Game!
Just as has been the case for the other freebies, a great place to begin is by letting your little one cut these cards out herself. You can cut the paper into strips and have her just do the final little snips, or for older children, they can cut all of these cards out completely.
Of course, if your little ones are new to cutting or too small, you can do this step on your own.
These ideas are great for both Young Learners and Older Learners:
Go Fish! Shuffle up the cards and place them in a pile between you and your child. Deal yourself and your child 3 cards each. Ask your child if he has a card that you do (if you had a bunny, you could ask your child if he has a bunny card). If your child has that card, he gives it to you, and it is still your turn. If he does not have that card, he tells you to go fish. You would then choose a card from the top of the pile, and it would be your child’s turn to ask you. Continue until all the cards are matched.
Memory! Shuffle the cards and place them face down. Take turns turning over two cards. If the cards match, you get to keep the pair and go again. If they do not match turn them back over facing down, and it is the next player’s turn.
Guess Who! This game is like a simplified version of “Guess Who?” Place a divider (like an open book) between yourself and your child and lay out your cards (each player will have one set of 10 cards). One player chooses a card, and the other player needs to ask questions trying to figure out which card has been selected. Perhaps player one chooses the bunny card. Player two would then as questions like: Is your card pink? (No, so all the cards with pink on them could be turned over), Is your card an animal? And so on. This is a wonderful way to build vocabulary and oral language development.
Real Life Match Up! Layout one set of cards on the floor or a table. Have your child go on a scavenger hunt to find something similar to each card. For the Easter bunny card, your child might find a stuffed bunny—or a carrot from the fridge. Have her explain her thinking and encourage her to build these connections. This is a wonderful way to broaden information known about topics.
Alright, now that we know how to play and learn with these Easter Game Cards, it is time to grab your FREE Printable!
I hope you and yours have a happy day playing away! Happy Easter!
