Egg Hunt

Updated: Dec 29, 2021



Adults will find a spot such as a park or housing area where they will hide the eggs numbered from 1-10. The eggs can be real boiled eggs or plastic eggs. A piece of paper will be pasted on each egg indicating where the next egg is located. There will be a basket for children to carry and place their eggs. Throughout the hunt, the adult can follow the child and be part of the activity. The objective of this activity is for the child to learn order, sequencing, numbering, improving language skills and to encourage their social emotional skills. When the child completes the hunt successfully, the adult can reward the child by making a boiled egg mayo sandwich together.
