Little Bunny's Present - A Colour Story

Once upon a time there was a little bunny who wanted to give his Mommy a beautiful egg for Easter. But he couldn't decide what colour to paint it. (set out a white egg shape).

"I know", he said "she really likes the green trees". so he took his plain white egg and painted it green (set out a green egg).
He looked at it.
He stared at it.
He said "hmmm - something's not quite right".

While he was thinking he looked up at the big, blue sky. and that gave him an idea.
He decided to paint the egg ________(blue - set out a blue egg).
He looked at it.
He stared at it.
He said "hmmm - something's not quite right".

As he hopped around outside he smelled the wonderful smell of ripe, red strawberries. And that gave him an idea.
He decided to paint the egg_______ (red - set out a red egg).
He looked at it.
He stared at it.
He said "hmmm - something's not quite right".

Thinking about strawberries made him hungry, so he hopped into the kitchen where his Mommy was chopping up some juicy, carrots. And that gave him an idea.
He decided to paint the egg ______ (orange - set out an orange egg).
He looked at it.
He stared at it.
He said "hmmm - something's not quite right".

"Little Bunny", said his Mommy "will you please pick some flowers for me?" And as Little Bunny picked some beautiful purple flowers for his Mommy he had another idea.
He decided to paint the egg ______(purple - set out a purple egg).
He looked at it.
He stared at it.
He said "hmmm - something's not quite right".

All of this thinking was making Little Bunny tired. He decided to have a nice little nap under his cozy, yellow blanket - and that gave him an idea.
He decided to paint the egg _______(yellow - set out a yellow egg).
He looked at it.
He stared at it.
He said "hmmm - something's not quite right".

Little Bunny was getting frustrated! A brown egg wouldn't work - his Mommy might think it was a chocolate egg and what do you think she might do? (eat it).
Yes, that's right, she might eat it and get eggshells in her teeth! (set out a brown egg and shake your head).

Just then, who should hop by but the Easter Bunny.
The Easter Bunny knew just what to do - do you? (set out an Easter egg in a rainbow of colours).

Science, Discovery, and Math

EGG-citing Egg Math

Egg Sound Matching Game
You will need 12 plastic eggs and one empty egg carton along with small items to place in the eggs. Pair up plastic eggs and put identical items in the pairs. Some ideas are popcorn kernals, beads, rice, cotton balls, etc... remember to put the same amount of each item in the pairs. Tape closed. Place in a basket. Have children shake the eggs to find the identical sounds and match them into an egg carton.

Plastic Egg Patterning
Purchase the bright solid coloured plastic Easter eggs. Have children create patterns using the eggs. To make them stand, cut an egg carton bottom into strips to place the eggs in. For more complicated patterns, tape the 2 strips together so the children have 12 spaces to work with.

Dramatic Play

Bunny House
Set up the dramatic play area with Easter/Bunny items. Bunny ear headbands can be found at your local dollar store. Add plastic eggs, baskets, and aprons.

Outdoor Play

Egg Hunt Fun
Hide plastic eggs in the yard and provide pails for the kids to find them. You could have matching pails and eggs for sorting colours. The kids will have fun finding the eggs and then can play their own hide and seek eggs with the materials.

Games and Party Ideas

Egg Roll Game
Create a bullseye in the center of the circle. Pass each child a different coloured plastic egg. If you have a large group, use 2 colours and create teams. Have children roll their egg towards the bullseye to see if they can get it in the center circle. For older children, you can award points to the circles and they can tally it up for a game.
