To prep the STEM activity, I simply printed the egg cards on card stock to give them extra durability. I cut along the lines to separate the pieces. Then, I placed them in a stack next to a basket of plastic Easter eggs.
I printed one copy of the record sheet for students who were ready for a challenge. (More on that in a bit…)
We were ready to play!
Easter Egg STEM Challenges
Little Sister (age 4) always get excited for STEM activities (science, technology, engineering and math), so she was eager to jump to work!
To play, she simply grabbed a card and used the plastic Easter eggs to build a match.
One card after the next, she worked her way through the pile.
The simple activity was a great way to work on color recognition and build her fine motor skills, too.
STEM Activity Extension Idea
Meanwhile, Middle Brother (age 6) needed more of a challenge. So, I stretched the STEM activity by asking him to brainstorm all of the different color combinations that could be made with the tops and bottoms of our Easter eggs.
It was fascinating to watch how he problem solved to keep track of the pairs he’d already created.
When he had a big pile of different combinations, I gave him the record sheet so that he could color his answers.
Older Brother (age 8) was excited to discover that the six different colored bottoms could be combined with our six different colored tops to make 36 possible combinations.
Multiplication in action!
