Mom School: Hidden Chick Number Game - Doing Splendid

Mom School: Hidden Chick Number Game

easter preschool number gameI thought that this Hidden Chick number game was perfect to use in preschool for the springtime! I actually made it last fall when I taught the letter E (you know, for egg!) in our co-op preschool, but it is so springy that I had to bring it out again!

When we played it last fall, the kids thought it was a great game and each insisted on multiple turns at trying to find the hidden chick. When we pulled the game back out recently, my two little boys still loved it!

So, do you want to know how to play it? First, I un-connected a few plastic Easter eggs. (Are all Easter eggs connected so you don’t lose the matches? Mine were, so I cut them apart.) Then, with permanent marker, I wrote a number on each one. You can choose which numbers you use, but in this case, I only wrote the numbers 1-5. I wrote each number numerous times.  easter preschool game

Then I made a little chick using a yellow pom pom and gluing on some googly eyes and a craft foam beak with hot glue.

Then I hid the little chick under one of the eggs with a 5 written on it and I would say something like, “This little chick likes to hide, but he only likes to hide under the number 5.” So, then the child whose turn it is would look only under the eggs with the number 5 on it to try to find the hidden chick. You could repeat for all the numbers written on the eggs. I think it is a great way for the kids to advance in their number recognition while having fun at the same time!
