Dying Easter Eggs to Target IEP Goals

Categories: Resources | Spring

We did a really fun art/cooking activity that left my room smelling like vinegar for days. I guess a better smell than the usually  preteen funk the fills our nostrils. No really. Preteen boys are just smelly. No matter how much they shower. Anyways – we dyed Easter eggs! It was so much fun and a great way to work on follow directions, color identification, math (we used a timer for how to keep the eggs in the dye), and fine motor skills. Yep – IEP goal. A little generalization can be done in a fun way! Great end to the week  🙂

This activity had surprisingly minimal prep! It was also great to work on waiting skills – how touch are those! One of my kiddos kept checking his egg every 10 seconds. Using the timer helped to illustrate more concretely how much time was left!

  1. I also did this today and also used timers – brilliant!. Only one egg was grabbed and smashed. I considered it to be a success.

  2. This looks like fun.. I think I’ll try it with my twins this week. I’m not confident all the eggs will come through unscathed

  4. How timely, I had a teacher refuse to do this because it “wasn’t speech therapy”. This is such a wonderful life experience and can help build expressive and receptive language skills. Thanks!
