Easter Activity - Number Recognition

Easter Activity - Number Recognition

I love quick and easy activities and this Easter number recognition activity is just that; quick and easy. It is a great morning invitation, or I just woke up from nap invitation, or momma needs a minute invitation. Basically, you are getting the idea that this Easter activity is perfect for just about any situation where you are trying to keep your preschooler busy and engaged at home.

The best part about this post is that I teamed up with some of my blogger friends to help you create a fun and simple Easter occasion for your family. I am providing the entertainment with a super simple Easter activity. My friend Tara from a Spot of Tea Designs is providing the decor that you and your kiddos can make together and my foodie friend, Katie from Eat Pretty Darling, is sharing the most adorable way to make some Easter snacks (that is RIDICULOUSLY simple). So down at the bottom of this post, I will have all those details for you, but first, let me share this fun Easter activity.

Focus Skills

Algebraic Thinking

  • Count from 0-10
  • Understand the values of numbers 0-10


  • Match objects based on two characteristics; size, color, shape, texture, or weight

Required Materials

*Affiliate Link

*Butcher Paper



*Construction Paper

Step #1

On a piece of butcher paper draw an Easter basket.

  • Do not worry about your artistic ability, your kids WILL NOT care, I promise.
  • We added a little bow on the side cause Rea is into all the girly things these days
Step #2

Draw Easter eggs (ovals) in the basket and maybe a few on the sides.

Step #3

Cut Easter eggs out of construction paper.

Step #4

Label the construction paper eggs and the eggs “in” the basket with corresponding numbers.

Step #5

Invite your preschooler to match the construction paper eggs to the eggs on the basket paper.

Teacher Tip

There are so many ways for you to make variations of this. You can change the numbers for sight words or letters. You can also hide the construction paper eggs around the house and go on an egg hunt before you match them.
