Well it was so cute I just had to try it out and report back to you guys. Thank goodness I saved/horded all those plastic easter eggs from previous years. 😉

The important part was to separate them and mis-match them up. This way kids will have to concentrate and match the correct corresponding letters or numbers rather than the colour.

As I dumped them out on the carpet, it immediately caught his attention. He bounced on over and helped me pop the eggs apart. Since we were just starting this game we made two piles: one for the “dots” and the other for the numbers. Then he went through and counted the dots and tried to match it up to the corresponding number.

I was amazed at how great this worked. Round one….SUCCESS!

The fun doesn’t stop here. 😉 We then popped them all apart again (I think this was is favorite part) and began to match the lower case letter with the upper case letters.

There are a ton of different combos you can do based on what level your child is at. There is even a version where kids can match up eggs to make words. Is it sad that I get excited about this stuff? Naaa didn’t think so. 😉

If learning with Easter eggs isn’t your cup of tea don’t fret, I will be posting again this afternoon so stay tuned. 😀


2012 – Crunching the Numbers

One of the cool things about WordPress.com is that it prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog. It was super cool so I decided to take some excerpts and share it with you.

Let the fun begin….

Crunching the Numbers

600 people reached the top of Mt. Everest in 2012. This blog got about 10,000 views in 2012. If every person who reached the top of Mt. Everest viewed this blog, it would have taken 17 years to get that many views.

In 2012, there were 177 new posts, not bad for the first year!

The busiest day of the year was November 14th with 361 views. The most popular post that day was Meet the Family.

Where did they come from?

That’s 96 countries in all! Most visitors came from The United States. Canada & Brazil were not far behind.
