While we did not make that big a deal out of Easter this year, we did try to ensure that many of our activities were Easter-themed, while still being in line with our curricular topics. It was quite fun for the children to be doing their Math topics but with an Easter bunny hopping about on the worksheet they’re answering, or hunting for eggs to count the money they could find inside. Aside from these, we were also able to make Easter Egg themed sun catchers, and listen to Easter themed stories.
Perhaps the highlight of our Easter celebration was our Easter Egg Hunt, which we held on the Friday before our Easter break. During outdoor play, the children searched for various plastic eggs that we had hid earlier. The kids seemed to have a blast, and it was especially nice to see how they helped one another look for eggs, particularly when they noticed their classmates didn’t have any yet.
