Easter Egg Hunt Sensory Counting Game

Welcome to another STEM Saturday! Every week we aim to share something related to science, technology, engineering and/or math. At the end of this post you’ll find more STEM ideas from the co-hosts and a linky where other bloggers can add STEM related activities! We hope you stick around and get inspired to explore S.T.E.M. with your kids!

This week I am sharing a fun Easter themed sensory counting game that is engaging to both the senses and the mind! The Easter Egg Hunt Sensory Counting Game is a fun way for preschoolers to practicing counting objects, work on one-to-one correspondence and gain tactile sensory input.

The Easter Egg Hunt Sensory Counting Game is really easy to set up. First I put some colored rice in a bin. You can find instructions for dying rice at And Next Comes L’s Ultimate Guide to Dyeing Sensory Materials. Then I added some small styrofoam Easter Eggs table scatter which I found at The Dollar Tree and hid them in the rice. That is all you need to set up the sensory bin. I brought out a couple of ice cube trays and a large foam die that are used for the counting and one-to-one correspondence game.

To play the Easter Egg Hunt Sensory Counting Game the first player roll the die and counts out that many Easter eggs, placing one egg in each section of the ice cube tray. The first player to fill their ice cube tray with Easter eggs is the winner! This is a great game for preschoolers to practice counting and one-to-one correspondence. Visual scanning is also worked on with this game as the players have to look for the eggs hidden in the rice bin, and sometimes dig them out which is the tactile sensory part of the game!
