Find the Easter Eggs Game – with no touching!

In 2021 it’s hard to play games that way we want when there’s no touching and no sharing materials.

Here’s an idea for a find the Easter Egg game that will be fun for students, and great ear training!

One at a time Version: – Make 1 sets of the rhythm posters and multiple sets of the rhythm eggs. – Tape the rhythm posters at the front of the room. – Cut out the eggs and tape multiple eggs under each poster. – Clap one of the poster rhythms for a student. – If they correctly find the poster rhythm that you clapped, they get to take an egg back to their desk and color it.

Race Version: Make 2┬ásets of the rhythm posters and multiple sets of the rhythm eggs. – Tape one set of posters on one side of the room, and the other set on the other side. – Tape the rhythm posters at the front of the room. – Cut out the eggs and tape multiple eggs under each poster. – Choose 2 student racers. – Clap one of the poster rhythms and the racers try to be the first one to the poster that was clapped. – Declare a winner — but both students will take an egg back to their desk and color it.
