Yes, it that time of the year when the Easter huevos (eggs) filled with candy are all over the place in the United States. I always love to use them in my classes to review colors in Spanish or hide small objects in them to have my students guess what’s inside.
This year I decided to challenge my third grade students by scrambling words they had to first organize to then be able to find what was inside the eggs. If you are ready to try this in your classes you will need plastic Easter eggs, Velcro, and tape. I have added a link to different vocabulary you can print, cut, laminate using clear tape, and stick to the egg using Velcro, place an object or small picture inside the egg and scramble the word. Only let the children open the egg after they have the word put together.

You can also divide the word by syllables and have the children create silly words by twisting the halves of the egg to line up the first half and last half of the word (see photo). They can even draw the silly creation later. For example, how about a “vato”, the result of mixing vaca and gato? Children eat this up, and it adds a nice dimension of fun to the classroom!
