Easter Egg Towers Math Activity
This Easter-themed math activity is just what you need to get your students practicing their math skills. It would be great in a math center for counting, addition, number recognition, one-to-one correspondence, and fine motor practice!
The spring-themed counting activity is so cute with the colorful Easter eggs, but there is also a black and white version for another printing option.
Once you have the counting game, there are a couple of options for you to choose from. First, there are Easter eggs with pictures of dominos in them. The students will use two colors of linking cubes to count and match the domino.
The next option is an Easter egg activity that shows one number. The student will use two colors of linking cubes to make a tower that equals that number.
The final option is a recording sheet for your students to write addition sentences to match the towers they created.
The activity for kids includes the numbers 1-10 and makes numbers and counting so much fun! Students will practice their counting skills and build fine motor skills in this fun activity with linking cubes.
Simple to Use and Prepare
The Easter egg towers set includes multiple color game boards, a recording sheet, and black and white game boards.
You will print the number-building activities out and slide them into a write and wipe pocket or laminate for durability; gather some linking cubes and pencils and begin playing!
No cutting, coloring, or gluing is required! From one print-out, your students will be practicing their number recognition, counting, one-to-one correspondence, and fine motor skills!
You might even be able to grade a couple of papers before your prep time is over with this no prep math activity!

Playing the Easter Egg Math Activity
The first version shows an Easter egg with a domino inside of it. The students will use one color to build a tower for the left side of the domino and another color for the right side of the domino. Then, they will combine the two towers to make one cube tower.
Next, they will record the addition sentence they created. For example, the domino shows a 2 and a 5. They will make a tower with two blues and a tower with five purple. Then they will combine the tower to make one Easter tower. They will, then, write the addition sentence 2+5=7.
The second version is similar but more complex by having them problem solve a little more. The egg shows a number, and the students will design a tower using two colors of cubes that add up to that number.
Then, they will write an addition sentence to match the tower that they built. For example, the egg has a 2 on it. The student would create a tower with two colors (1 red and 1 yellow). Then, they would write the addition sentence to match (1+1=2).
To save paper, you could laminate or slide the recording into a wipe and write pocket so students could record with a dry erase marker. Then erase and use again!
More Ideas for the Number Towers Activity
There are two activity mats included for easy differentiation! These game boards could be used for a small group, math centers, a whole class activity, an after-school tutoring group, and so much more.
If your students aren’t ready to make addition sentences yet, you could use the Easter egg board with just numbers and have them make towers with one color to just practice counting, one-to-one correspondence, and number sense.
Another idea could be to have students draw a number card from a pile and find the matching egg. This would help students learn their numbers and have a fun, hands-on activity! To make it even more fun, put the numbers in plastic Easter eggs, and students draw one from a basket.
To make the game more fun, they could use plastic eggs and play doh to create little eggs to match each numbered egg. Students could also use different manipulatives like mini erasers, pom poms, stackable counters, or plastic eggs. They could also use gummy candies and toothpicks to create Easter towers. This would add in a spring stem challenge.
Early finishers would love to work together with a partner to build a tower for every egg. This could be completed quietly once they have finished their main math lesson. If you have a student looking for more practice, they could transfer their addition sentence into a ten frame to take it even further.
Write these fun Easter activities in your lesson plans! Your students will love to have an egg hunt with numbers to build the tallest tower or an Easter STEM activity. Those will take planning, so you better grab this free, no-prep math activity today!
