A fun and simple Easter maths activity for your preschoolers. This can also be adapted for older children by changing the sums that you write on the eggs. Maybe think about multiplication sums for school aged children.

Write sums with different totals on the eggs and then write the answers on to the bottom of the dents in an egg box or cake mold as I used above.
Then place 2 different counting manipulatives in to the egg to help work out the sum. So in this example you can see 1+2 and I have included 1 rabbit foot and 2 chicks. The children can then use these to help them solve the problem if they get stuck and also to help them check their answers.

This activity meets the following areas of the EYFS:
  • Language and Communication
  • Mathematics
