Kiddos love getting into the holidays, and I love watching their excitement! Below are a variety of Easter activities for toddlers and preschoolers. I’m sure elementary-aged children would love them, too.
fun Easter activities for toddlers & preschoolers!
Plastic Easter egg sculpture | Fun-A-Day
A fun and artistic way to use extra plastic eggs! My preschoolers and I used a glue gun during this activity, but I’d suggest play dough or glue dots for younger kiddos.
Fizzy Easter eggs | Reading Confetti
We looooooove fizzy science around here, so this activity was a huge hit! I love the literacy tie-ins as well.
Contact paper chick | House of Burke
I love the sensory aspect of this toddler-friendly Easter craft! My preschoolers would get a kick out of it as well.
Train Easter eggs | Play Trains
These eggs are perfect to make with the little engineers in your lives!
Montessori Easter egg rainbow activity | Living Montessori Now
Fine motor skills, math, and practical life practice all rolled into one colorful activity.
Easter egg shell craft | Powerful Mothering
I really appreciate how this craft can apply to a variety of ages. It can be sensory play, color learning, and arts/crafts, depending on what the children are into.
Easter egg filler coupons | Ellie Petrov
Some non-candy fillers for the kiddos’ Easter eggs!
Easter egg hand prints | Fun-A-Day
Using kids’ hand prints to make art is a must when kids are still little. Here’s a way to do just that, then let the children “decorate” their egg hand prints.
Q-Tip painted Easter eggs | No Time for Flash Cards
Allison introduced shades of colors to this Easter art activity. What a fun way to explore and paint without using a paintbrush.
The dissolving Peeps experiment | Mom to 2 Posh L’il Divas
I’ll admit it, I just don’t like eating Peeps (*gasp*). However, dissolving them in the name of science? That, I can get behind!
Bunny tails color matching | Twodaloo
Color matching, fine motor skills, and lots of cuteness all in one project that toddlers and preschoolers would get a kick out of!
Plastic Easter egg number fun | Rubberboots and Elf Shoes
Kiddos love to open and close plastic eggs, even if there’s nothing inside them. So why not use them to practice numbers and quantities?!
Life-size Easter basket | Fun at Home with Kids
Yes please. I’d like one! Seriously – who would pass this up? 🙂
Toddler Easter art with plastic eggs | Teaching 2 and 3 Year Olds
A process art exploration of painting and plastic eggs! Those little ones had a BLAST with this project!
Beginning letter sound Easter egg hunt | This Reading Mama
I love how this combined a mini egg hunt with important early literacy skills! It also includes a free printable.
Easter play dough activity | My Nearest and Dearest
Ann presented her son with colorful play dough, and a few Easter-themed materials, then sat back and let him go at it. I love the colors, the use of the Easter materials they already had, and the open-ended quality of this activity!
So, which of these ideas are you going to try out first?! I know, I know – too many great activities makes it harder to choose! 🙂 Do you have any Easter activities for toddlers or preschoolers you think I should add to the list? If so, be sure to tell me in the comments below.
