Foam sheets (We used egg shaped foam sheets)
A bit of water within a tray (this is the “glue” that holds the foam pieces onto your window.) 🙂
That is all you will need my friends!
Super easy, super simple and fun!
Easter Egg Foam Craft Puzzle Games
How exactly did I go about this simple Easter egg craft activity?
I created an epic puzzle game out of the foam Easter eggs!
Here are the steps I took to set this simple kids activity up:
Draw zig zags, lines and swirls onto an Easter egg.
Tip: Make sure both ends of the lines, swirls and zig zags meet the opposite side of where you started drawing from.
Then, cut on the lines that were made.
Boom! You’ve created an epic puzzle that your LO can piece back together.
Super simple and easy way to create a puzzle out of foam sheets!
Now, you can most definitely skip the window activity and add your pieces on a table for solving the puzzle.
But, if you are like me and would like to get extra creative, place the foam pieces within a tray with a tiny bit of water.
Then, solve the puzzle by placing the foam puzzle pieces onto a window for a fun game of solving the puzzle on a window!
Or, you can even use the pieces for an Easter foam bath puzzles activity in the bathtub! (Supervision advised)

Easter Egg Foam Puzzles for Teaching
One of my favorite things about this simple activity is that you can theme it in whatever season/holiday it is AND that it can work for a differentiated set of ages.
For toddlers, create one line or swirl on the foam Easter egg for color matching or matching.
This is an easy and simple way to get littles working on their fine motor skills, hand eye coordination and color recognition.
What other fun ways can we go about this simple activity for toddlers?
For preschoolers, creating extra lines on the foam Easter egg for a more advanced approach can work as well!
Talking about colors and even creating that extra epic window activity is super fun too!
Have a preschooler who is learning about their name?
Write out the letters of their name on the foam eggs for matching and learning how to spell out their name!
This is a fun and easy way to practice words like ba, ca, da, fa… or to learn about their name for a fun name activity for preschoolers!
For kindergarten, work on sight words!
Create an epic Easter egg foam craft puzzle pieces set that works on solving the puzzle sight words for learning in a fun and themed way!
Math can also work out too!
Write out equations such as 2+3 = 5 using 3-5 puzzle pieces from the Easter egg foam sheets.
The possibilities are truly endless!
