Find the Easter Eggs
- 100+ Construction paper Easter eggs cut out
How To Play: Hide the eggs while the children are out of the room. Have the children find as many eggs as they can. Then have children go back to their tables or groups and count how many eggs the whole group has. Highest number of eggs collected get to make their treats first.
