- mini Easter baskets (I only had eight baskets but I think ten would work better. You can find these at a craft or party store.)
- mini Easter eggs (I found these at Hobby Lobby)
- number cardsThe child lays down the cards in order, places a basket above each number, and counts the appropriate number of eggs into each basket. To make this activity self checking, provide the exact number of eggs the child will need
Variation: If your child does not recognize numbers you can provide cards with dots. The child counts the dots on each card and places the corresponding number of eggs into the basket.
Here is a variation of this game that I made for my two year old.

Children are highly motivated to play grid games with fun counters. As soon as four year old Julia saw this rabbit grid game she was excited to feed the rabbits!
To make this game I used:
- two grids of 15 rabbits (created with clip art and printed on card stock)
- 30 carrot erasers
Can you guess who won?
