Why Coding Activities Are Great
We all know that teaching foreign languages is important. Let’s add one more language to that list: computer code. Today’s students need tech-savvy to navigate their futures.
Learning to speak to a computer requires a special way of communicating. Unlike a person, computers don’t understand intent, body language, or tone.
When you speak to a computer in code, you have to tell it how to do every. single. step.
Kids can learn this step-by-step way of thinking and communicating through fun activities such as this Easter Coding Activity.

What You Need for the Easter Coding Activity
You don’t even need a computer for this coding activity. It doesn’t teach computer code, but it teaches the communication skills students will later need when reading and writing code.
The most important item is the Easter Coding Activity Sheets. You can get these for free in the Freebies Library (more on this in a moment).
You’ll also need colored pencils. I like to use the ones with erasers in case the student makes a mistake. You can also use crayons or fine-tipped markers.
Here are the colors you’ll need:
There are three puzzles in total (and they come with the answer sheets too!).
How to Use Easter Coding Activity Sheets
This Easter STEM activity is flexible and fun. It can work in a number of ways.
An Easter Coding Activity is a great warm-up activity for a lesson on science or math. Have it on the students’ desks to quietly complete as a brain warm-up.
I like to have some fun and seasonal worksheets on hand for early finishers. This helps keep the classroom quiet while the others finish their work.
STEM Learning Center
This activity is perfect for your STEM learning center. Stock a pile of coding sheets and a few cups of colored pencils.
This is a fun activity to send home as part of an Easter treat for students. You can roll it up like a scroll and attach a piece of candy to the ribbon. It’s a great Easter gift for students!
I love this activity because it’s part STEM and part art therapy! You can use it as a break from more interactive subjects.
It lets a little quiet reign in the classroom for a minute, so you can take a few sips of your coffee.
Sometimes you are stuck inside for recess, especially in the rainy months of spring. You can keep these Easter Coding Activity Sheets on hand for an indoor recess activity that is ready to go!
