Don’t fill those Easter eggs with candy! Instead, fill them with magnetic letters and use them for alphabet activities! These Easter egg alphabet centers are sure to add just enough magic to keep your preschool and kindergarten students engaged, without them realizing they are actually practicing letter recognition!
Setting Up the Easter Egg Alphabet Centers
To set up the Easter egg alphabet centers, you will need to fill plastic eggs with magnetic letters.
The uppercase and lowercase magnetic letters from Educational Insights will fit perfectly inside the letters on the “Egg-cellent Letters” work mat.
Place the filled eggs inside a basket. Any basket will do, but an Easter basket helps make the game a little more authentic!
Print the Easter egg alphabet centers work mats. The black and white work mats can be printed on regular copy paper and used as a printable response sheet.

Directions for the Easter Egg Alphabet Centers
The game is simple!
First, the students will pick an egg from the basket and crack it open.
Then, they will match the letter to the appropriate letter on the “Egg-cellent Letters” work mat.
The easiest way to play is to have the students match upper to upper or lower to lower.
For a more difficult version, you can have them match upper to lower or lower to upper.
Another option is to have the students color the appropriate letter on the black and white work mat.
Easter Egg Alphabet Hunt
Instead of placing the eggs inside a basket, you could hide the eggs around the classroom.
As the students find the eggs, they will place or color the letter on their “Egg-cellent Letters” work mat.
This alphabet hunt for letters is such a fun twist on the traditional Easter egg hunt!
