Cut the cardstock into egg shapes (we made about 20). Then using either the tape or the marker, draw a line down the middle. Put stickers on each half of each egg (on either side of the line). Place stickers in groups of 1-6.

Playing Dominoes

Give each player 5 egg cards, and place one domino face up in the middle. The person whose birthday is closest to Easter goes first. To play a card, one side of your domino must match a free end of a domino on the playing table. The person whose turn it is either plays one of their cards (matching their domino to an open one), or if they don’t have a card to play, selects one from the pile. The first player to play all their cards first wins.

To make the Toddler Dominoes

Cut the cardstock into 10 egg shapes, and then use tape or a marker to put a line in the center.  Choose 10 matching sticker pairs, and put 1 sticker on each end of each egg (on either side of the middle line).

To play, let your toddler select a card, and find the matching sticker. To start, I usually narrow his choices down to 3 or 4 cards.
