Puzzle Time and Craft!

This is a great educational easter activity. Teach your toddler how a puzzle works. This will help them develop basic skills such as shape recognition, concentration, goal setting, patience and a sense of achievement.

Puzzles help develop hand-eye co-ordination and fine motor skills due to the precise nature of matching each piece exactly.

Provide your toddler with a great learning opportunity, while doing a festive craft together!

Painting, Patterns, and Shapes

This next toddler activity, is fun and easy to do. Let your toddler feel good about this creative artwork they made! Teach them to understand the shape of a circle and oval. Help them to understand what patterns are. These are really important learning concepts.

Plus, you can write their name and age on it. Use it as an easter decoration for years to come. You are creating an awesome keepsake, while teaching and entertaining them!

Egg Paint Roll

This is another fun painting idea. You can teach your toddler cause and effect and motor skills.

They learn this through how their movement effects the egg’s movements and the ability of it to move through the paint.

Egg Dying

This is an all time easter pastime! Dying Easter eggs! Well, I don’t like the idea of the traditional method with vinegar and dye capsules in cups, for a toddler. That just sounds like a recipe for disaster!

So here’s a great alternative idea! Its a safer and not nearly as messy! Although, depending on the age of your toddler, this can still get messy! I recommend doing this as an outdoor activity!

WHAT YOU NEED

DIRECTIONS

  1. Hard boil 12 eggs. Allow cooling.
  2. Soak the eggs in a bowl of vinegar for at least 10 minutes.
  3. In a large container thaw out whipped topping, smoothing it until it is even.
  4. Using gel food coloring, mix and swirl the coloring. You can do solid colors or mix to swirl several colors.
  5. Place your egg in the whipped topping.
  6. Spoon over to fully cover the egg. Leave it there for 15 minutes.
  7. In a small bowl, fill it with water. Gently dunk the egg in water and swish it around. Do not rub the excess whipped cream off or run it under the tap as that will wash away the coloring.
  8. Allow drying time.

Easter egg Hunt

Of course, we can’t leave out the super fun and interactive egg hunt! This year I will be filling my 2 years olds eggs with animal cookies! I plan to put one cookie in each egg! This way he can find lots of eggs and have fun learning what’s inside! I may also put some stickers in a few of them as well.

WHAT YOU NEED

  • Plastic Easter Eggs
  • Basket
  • Egg Fillers (Candy, Toys, Money, Stickers, Snacks)

DIRECTIONS

  1. Fill Easter eggs with fun goodies!
  2. Hide them all over the yard or house.
  3. Let you child find them!
  4. Carry a basket to put their eggs in.
