It seems a little strange to be doing Easter-themed activities during this time, but we are finding it to be a lovely way for our family to Make Time Together. We've hunted high and low on Instagram to round up our five favorite ways to get creative with plastic Easter eggs.
Mandisa from @happytoddlerplaytime is the absolute queen at plastic Easter egg activities, we struggled to choose just one from her colorful feed. We decided to go with this super simple STEM activity involving paper towel and toilet paper tubes. Simply challenge your kids to build a creation, with the eggs balanced on top. The really fun part comes when you then get to knock them all over and build again.
Fizzing eggs... yes please! We love this fun set up of plastic eggs, baking soda, vinegar, powdered dye and some pipettes from Lucy over at @flisatfun. Each time her kids added the vinegar to the egg, a different colored eruption happened. So cool!
Have you got a toddler who loves any sort of posting activity they can get their hands on? Molly from @littleoneslearn shared this fabulous DIY Egg Drop recently and we think it is the perfect fine motor activity for this time of year.
4. Egg Dough
This is such an adorable idea by @astokes_photo. She gathered loose parts from the garden, put out some beads, and then filled the eggs with play dough with her kids. Our kids would have a blast adding to mini play dough eggs!
One of our kids' favorite ways to play with plastic eggs is simply to combine them with water play. But Lisa from @eatplay.andlove took it to a whole other level with this epic frozen egg hunt! Not only did her kids have to hunt down the plastic eggs inside the ice, they then had to crack them open to find toys frozen inside. Genius!
We are feeling super inspired to crack out those plastic eggs and enjoy some quality family time this long weekend. Happy Easter friends!
