Have an Egg-cellent Easter! Our Top Resources for the Season

We can’t believe it’s almost time to start planning for Easter! This term has zoomed by! ๐ŸŽ๏ธ๐Ÿ’จ

 

Easter is a great time to engage your class in hands-on, meaningful activities that are perfect to display and share with families. Whether you’re teaching Early Years or Year 6 this year, there truly is something for everybody on the webby!

 

Read on to discover our favourite recommendations for stress-free, highly engaging learning tasks to work on with your class during the Easter season ๐Ÿ’›

 

 

 

Get your students thinking and writing with these super fun activities! Full of differentiated options and additional crafts for your fast finishers, these tasks will keep everyone busy and will look beautiful on display once complete โญ๏ธ

 

๐Ÿ’› If I Were The Easter Bunny: Perfect for pairing with the picture book of the same name by Louise Gardner, this writing prompt is one of our most popular Easter resources year after year, and we can see why! Easily differentiated with multiple template options, this download also features Easter Bunny face frames where students can draw themselves or glue a picture of their face for an adorable class display or take-home present.

 

๐Ÿ’› My Family Easter Snapshots: This Upper Years-focused activity is great for students looking to explore how different families celebrate Easter each year. Students use the planning sheet to take notes and draw images, then compile their information into a written explanation.

 

๐Ÿ’› My Easter Story: Get your students’ narrative gears churning with this interactive task! Using the cut-out images, students paste together an Easter picture and then create a matching written narrative. Let their imaginations run wild!

 

 

 

It’s easy to bring Easter into your Maths and Science lessons when you have the right resources to make it happen! ๐Ÿ’› From low-prep worksheets to engaging activities and games, there’s a little something for everyone.

 

๐Ÿ’› Easter STEM Challenge Cards: These open-ended challenges will engage your students and keep their minds busy while they try to use STEM skills to find solutions to practical problems. Can’t get ahold of the supplies you need for a task? No worries! Simply remove that card from the mix. You can even use the matching display pack to have the cards available at all times for your fast finishers to grab as needed โญ๏ธ

 

๐Ÿ’› Feed the Bunny Number Representation 0-10: Perfect for an Early Years workstation, this activity helps your students practise identifying different representations of the same number. All you need to do is print the bunny, attach him to a basket or container, and spread the carrot cards in an area of your choice. Students can only ‘feed the bunny’ once they’ve found a collection of representations of the same number!

For an extra twist, why not hide the cards in an outdoor area or classroom space to create a scavenger hunt? ๐Ÿ”Ž

 

๐Ÿ’› Egg-cellent Maths: These low-prep worksheets are great for easy workstations or filler for your relief teacher folder. Write numbers on the two halves of a collection of plastic Easter eggs, store them unconnected in a basket and use them as prompts for your students to complete each of the activities.

Topic options for this task include More or Less, Friends of 10 and Addition.

 

 

 

It’s time to get messy! These craft activities will have your students cutting, pasting and painting their way to beautiful displays and practical creations. ๐Ÿฃ

 

๐Ÿ’› Hatching Chick Easter Craftivity: A simple craft with plenty of opportunities for extension! Students cut and paste to create an adorable hatching chick that you can put on display in your classroom. We’ve included loads of additional ideas for ways to complete and build on this craft, but we can’t wait to see the awesome things our subscribers do with it! ๐Ÿฅš

 

๐Ÿ’› Easter Family Crest: This Upper Years craft explores family traditions, asking students to design an Easter crest on an egg template inspired by their experiences with their family and culture. Why not enlarge this resource to A3 and have students cut out their completed eggs to create a whole class nest display?

 

๐Ÿ’› Easter Basket Folding Craft (pictured): Going on an egg hunt? Use this handy craft to create practical baskets your students can use to store their collected eggs! Alternatively, fill each completed basket with eggs to create an adorable present for family and friends.

 

๐Ÿ’› Easter Bunny Silhouette Art: This stunning art display is a TT favourite every year! Use smudged chalk on a black card template to create an Easter Bunny silhouette that can be decorated with oil pastel, crayons, paints and more. This activity is super flexible – keep your craft directed to create uniform pieces, or give your students creative freedom to transform their silhouettes into something truly unique!

 

 

 

๐Ÿ’› Chalk Bunny Easter Gift Tags: We are obsessed with the chalk Easter bunnies Kmart drops each year, so this gift tag is the perfect accompaniment when using them as a take-home gift! ๐ŸŽ Can’t find the chalk bunnies? No worries! You can pair these gift tags with chalk eggs or just a regular packet of chalk.

 

๐Ÿ’› Easter Gift Tags EDITABLE: These super cute gift tags are a perfect match for any present – artwork, eggs, baskets, you name it! They’re also editable, so you can customise them to suit your students and context.

 

๐Ÿ’› Easter Bunny Peek Through Card: We love this super-cute lift-the-flap card that students can customise with a personal message. Print on coloured card or have students personally decorate their card to gift to a loved one! Or why not assign students a buddy Secret Santa-style and have them create personalised cards for their peers?

 

๐Ÿ’› Easter Egg Wreath: This gorgeous craft is a perfect gift for families to take home and display on their doors or fridges โญ๏ธ Students assemble their wreath using decorated Easter egg templates on either the bunny or chick frame.

Want to make it pop? Try adding tissue paper ‘leaves’, sprinkling on some glitter or adding a ribbon loop to the top to make it easy to hang!

 

 

 

Easter can be an incredibly fun time in the classroom, but it can also be stressful trying to find ways to incorporate the holiday effectively! Here are some of our top tips to make sure you and your class have the most egg-citing Easter ever ๐Ÿฅš๐ŸŽ‰

 

๐Ÿ’› Keep It Simple: You don’t have to do everything! Are take-home gifts just too much this year? Don’t worry about them. Are you running out of time to put up a display? Leave it! Engaging your students in their learning is always the first priority, so don’t feel bad if you don’t have the time or energy for all the extras.

 

๐Ÿ’› Prioritise: So you want to do some fun Easter tasks, but you’re super behind on your English/Maths/Science planning ๐Ÿ˜ฎโ€๐Ÿ’จ No worries! Use the Easter resources aligned to the topic areas you need to reinforce in your classroom and take care of both at once.

Don’t have time to sneak in an Easter craft? Use a cross-curricular task like the Roll & Decorate Easter Eggs orย How to Catch the Easter Bunny Writing Craftivity to make sure you’re hitting your curriculum targets and enjoying the season at the same time โญ๏ธ

 

๐Ÿ’› Have Fun: Easter is the perfect time to have a bit of fun with your class and celebrate the end of their first term. Don’t forget to take a breath and enjoy it! ๐Ÿ˜
