They will then pull out the paper Easter egg from inside it and identify the capital or lowercase letter.
If you are using the lowercase or capital letter recording sheets, your children will color the letter they picked using dot markers or crayons.
If you are using the letter writing recording sheet with the blank circles, your kids will write a letter on each one.
