On a recent morning during our homeschool preschool time, I set up a fun and simple Easter egg sound matching game for QBoy and XGirl to play. Montessori learning for the preschool years focuses a lot on developing children’s senses. This activity takes a Easter-themed Montessori approach to helping young work on honing their sense of hearing by forcing them to play close attention to the sounds of objects inside an Easter egg.
Note: This and other Easter activities can be found on my Easter activities for kids page.
I presented my kids with a tray that included five empty Easter eggs and five objects, including a bouncy ball, a jelly bean, a chain link, a button, and a glass marble.
What a great idea. Thanks for sharing!

That is a wonderful idea 🙂 we have been doing many Easter egg-type activities here at home, and this one will have to be included. Thanks for sharing!
What a great idea Katie! Thanks for the idea. My guy is only 2 but we probably don’t work on sounds as much as we should.
Also wanted to invite you to our Easter Basket Showcase link party this Thursday the 28th. I’d love to have some crafty moms like yourselves link up to show off their Easter baskets or any easter decor!
This look like so much fun. I can’t wait to try this with my boys. Thanks so much for sharing at the eco kids blog hop.
Great auditory learning activities for preschoolers. I can’t wait to try this in my preschool. We will be using our Easter eggs for some fun learning activities after Easter! Thanks for sharing at Mom’s Library!

Wow! What an awesome idea! Thanks for sharing!!
Excellent experiment and fun activity – love it!
When I first saw the title of your activity I was wondering how it was a science activity (I misread it and saw phonics), but matching sounds to the object is a great way to work on observation skills, I totally get it now!
Thanks for linking up to Science Sunday!
What a great way to challenge them to listen.
What a fun idea!! I love it! Thank you for sharing at Sharing Saturday!!
This is a great DIY version of a sound cubes game that we have. I’m linking to this on my new post about our 5 senses toddler activities. Thank You!!
