I used very simple materials for this one! I had planned to use some mini Easter Egg decorations I had seen at the Dollar Tree but when I circled back around to our local store they were out so instead I ended up using some small jelly bean eggs that my hubby had bought (sorry Hubs! 😉 ). Obviously if you have small children that still mouth everything you may want to find an alternative to the small eggs or make sure to use close supervision.
Materials for Easter Eggs Sensory Bin:
We used this primarily for some color sorting practice and general sensory play, MB and the kids love rice play activities, but it’s also quite the fine motor adventure for the kids as they try to fit the Easter Eggs back together.
MB also added her tweezers and magnifying glass to the box which added more fine motor practice to the activity! She hasn’t quite figured out the magnifying glass but it’s fun to watch her try!
The Easter egg candies definitely smell good but I was surprised that it took about 35 minutes for MB and the daycare kids to realize that they were in fact edible.
“What? I’m not eating anything…”
What Easter or spring activities have you been up too?
