My girls love finding Easter eggs, so I had the idea of hiding puzzle pieces in them instead of candy. This might be a fun way to give kids a new puzzle on Easter. Or it can just be a fun non-treat egg hunt you can have around your house any day.
Confession: my original idea was to hide regular puzzle pieces in the eggs, but they didn’t fit. 😦 Never fear! This Melissa & Doug alphabet puzzle worked perfectly. Plus it had the added learning component of identifying the letter found in the egg and then finding its spot in the alphabet.
- Place puzzle pieces in eggs and hide around the room (or outside).
- Bring in the kids and let them look for eggs!
- After finding an egg, the kiddo needs to run over to the puzzle and put in her piece before she hunts for another egg.
- To make it fair for younger players, you might want to have kids take turns finding eggs and adding pieces to the puzzle. One kid can’t go find a second egg until everyone has found their first egg and so on.

LOVE this fabulous idea!!
Thanks so much! We had fun with it!
Great idea! I wonder if it would ‘peak’ my daughters interest in the letters?! Thanks : ) Off to find my easter eggs!
I hope it works for your daughters! My reluctant learner was eager to name the letter and put in the puzzle so she could go find another one!

This is such a fun idea! We tried a version of this once and it was great – until I forgot where I hid some of the puzzle pieces! lol! 🙂
