There are so many wonderful ways to creatively decorate an egg – from simple dye kits right up to elaborate and detailed works of art. Kids get so excited about it that the more you can incorporate Easter fun into your lesson plans, the easier it will be to your students on task.
If you are on the lookout for some great Easter content, I have some great Easter Egg activities and ideas to share with you. I have some great things to offer in this blog post – from fun books about Easter Eggs to bulletin board ideas for your classroom.

Easter Egg Activities and Math Fun
I’d like to start off with some great math resources. Every elementary teacher knows how hard it can be to get those basic math facts ingrained into the minds of their students. But these charming Easter Egg puzzles will have your students actually excited about doing math! And with four to choose from, covering the basic math skills, you can challenge your more advanced students while making sure the rest of your students can practice at their appropriate level as well.
Various math Easter Egg activities are available below. Click on the one/s that are most appropriate for your students. Each puzzle includes two options – the harder ones pictured below and an easier option as well. Choose which to use or use both to differentiate among your students!

What Teachers Are Saying About Easter Egg Activities
People who have bought my Easter Egg activities have said:
Also Great for Decor!
I’m sure you can imagine how adorable these Easter Egg Puzzles would look in your classroom, especially when combined with some of my Bunny puzzles, too. They make GREAT bulletin boards, doorway decorations, or even hallways displays! Your students can cut them out, complete their puzzles, and then decorate them in whatever colors and patterns they want on their eggs. The finished displays are a wonderful way to welcome Spring and celebrate the Easter season. (Best of all, administration can’t complain that these aren’t academic enough, because students work so hard putting their puzzles together!)
