Easter More Than Bunnies And Chocolate

Easter brings thoughts of chocolates and bunnies but children at Little Trinity Nursery in Kidderminster also considered which came first, the chicken or the egg!

Forming part of their Easter activities and focus of understanding the world around them, the children looked at the life cycle of a chicken, and discussed which came first, the chicken or the egg?

Nursery Manager, Gaynor Carter said: “The children have had such a wonderful time talking about chickens and sorting and matching different sized eggs and decorating them with different patterns, they simply had lots and lots of fun.

“Using tweezers, they hunted for hidden eggs in the tuff tray using their fine motor skills and they thoroughly enjoyed their Easter egg hunt and searching the nursery to find hidden treats to enjoy as they searched!”

From crafting delicious chocolate Easter nests and using their blossoming creative skills to make colourful Easter cards for family and friends, they also decorated Easter baskets to take home their wonderful chocolate creations, as well as enjoyed Easter stories and a letter sound egg hunt to encourage their communication, language, and literacy skills, shouting out each of the letter sounds as they found them.

Added Gaynor: “With spring in the air the children had fun on a spring walk and used their senses to explore the outside, and throughout the week participated and enjoyed in the many games and activities, particularly those chocolate related!”
