Letter Sounds Egg Hunt Activity

A large amount of cardboard ‘Easter eggs’ are created, each possessing a different word written on them. These are then hidden around the classroom/school/playground.


Children can create their own Easter egg baskets for their egg hunt. Once these have been created, each child must write a different letter sound on their basket. (If you’re¬†working on a particular set of letter sounds, ensure each child on a table has a different letter sound.)


The class then get to go on an egg hunt! They must search the specified area for the letter sound eggs that you have hidden. When they find one, they must sound out the word to discover if it contains the letter sound on their basket. If it matches, they can put the egg in their basket and search for another one. However, if it doesn’t contain the letter sound, they must leave the egg where it is.
