How Big Is Bunny? Easter Math Activity


Easter math activity for kids. Toddlers preschoolers, or early elementary children will enjoy size sequencing and measuring.

Here's a quick and easy math activity that you can do with your kids during an Easter theme week.  There's no prep involved, and you don't need any special materials.  That's my kind of learning!

Easter math activity for preschoolers

Gather all of the spring or Easter animals from around your house.  We had some stuffed lambs, ducks, and bunnies, as well as some small animal figurines that worked.  Take a spin through your playroom or your kids bedrooms and grab what you see.  Try to get a variety of sizes.

Next, ask your child to put them in order by size.  Show them where to put the smallest, and where to put the largest.  This part of the activity was great for Maggie (almost 3-years-old).

Lena and I watched and encouraged as she worked to get everything in order.  We showed her how to hold things side by side to check and see which was bigger.  We reminded her where smaller things went and where larger things went.  She loved getting them neatly lined up.

Size sequencing is an important preschool skill, and sequencing items that are different (ducks and lambs and hard and soft, for example, instead of printouts of pictures of the same object) adds a level of challenge for an older toddler/young preschooler.

Next it was Lena's (4.5-years-old) turn to get in on the action.  Grab a ruler and a piece of paper.  Show your child how to measure using a ruler.  Show them the side of the ruler they'll be using (in our case, we measured in inches) and how to read the measurement.

Start with your smallest object, and record the measurements.  Depending on the age and ability of your child, they can do the writing or you can.  Lena started to write, but then wanted me to take over.

There you have it!  With nothing fancy and no prep time you've just taught a great little math lesson!
