Easter Egg Fractions Game - this is such a fun, clever math game to help kindergarten, 1st grade, 2nd grade, and 3rd grade students practice fractions in homeschool

My 8 year old has been learning about fractions over the past year in his homeschool math curriculum and to add in some more hands-on practice, I created a simple matching game using plastic Easter eggs.

This fun fractions matching game will help your child match the numeric fraction with a pictorial representation.  It's great for students who are visual learners, but I think this matching game will appeal to all kids learning about fractions!

Fraction Games

Gather your stash of plastic Easter eggs and a sharpie pen.

Bonus if you make this activity after Easter you can buy the plastic Easter eggs on clearance! 

write fractions on plastic easter eggs to make a fun fractions game

Begin setting up the activity by drawing out a picture of a fraction on the top half of a plastic Easter egg and the numeric fraction on the bottom.

So for instance, you may draw a shape divided into thirds on top and shade in two parts, and your fraction that you would write on the bottom would be 2/3.

HINT:  You can either set up the fractions to match by color to provide an element of self-correction, or you can mix and match the colors.  It is up to you!

Fractions Game

Once all the Easter eggs have a pictorial and corresponding numeric fraction, invite your child over to find the matches.

Have fun with this festive Spring fractions matching activity!  You can easily adapt this activity for any math concept such as counting, adding, multiplication, division, etc!
