Easter Activities for Toddlers

Easter is just around the corner and we’ve been busy doing lots of Easter activities and artwork! Here are a few things we did the last couple of weeks.

1. Egg Rolling and Animal Figurine Tracks

I got this idea from  marble painting. With marble painting, you take marbles, dip them in paint, drop them in a paper-lined tray and move the tray around to paint your picture! So instead of marbles, we used boiled eggs! You can probably use craft eggs as well.

Our kids shared a single tray so this was a collaborative art project. Instead of moving the tray around, we used little cocktail stirrers to move the eggs around.

For the stamping activity, we thought it’d be a lot of fun to use our animal and dinosaur figurines to stamp eggs on paper!

Our kids love getting paint all over their hands and paint with their fingers/hands. So I usually let them go crazy with less structure at the end of our project. It allows them to practice following instructions and also let their creative juices go wild.

2. Bobbing for Easter Eggs

It’s only the start of Spring here in California and it’s been warm!! So I thought it’d be a great day to let the kids with with water! Let go bobbing for eggs!

Instead of using your mouth with apples, I handed the kids some spoons. Great way to practice their fine motor skills!

Again, we used craft eggs. These were purchased from Michaels and they are kind of like ping pong balls. Very light and hallow. They float, making them perfect for this activity.

I also colored the water with some food coloring to make it more festive haha
