Easter is almost here, and the Autumn season is so delightful that it’s truly hard not to appreciate it. It’s so welcoming after being cooped up inside for a really long time.
Whenever I think Easter, I think Easter fun activities: Easter eggs and obviously the Easter bunny! So, let’s get into the fun part!
Easy and Fun Easter Activities Ideas
Toddlers have a unique mix of interest, freshly discovered freedom, thoughtfulness, and chaos. These simple Easter activities will allow your babies to investigate their curiosity and creativity and work on fundamental skills like hand-eye coordination and fine motor skills.
Glow in the dark Easter Egg Hunt
Setting up a glow in the dark Easter egg hunt is so simple and is bound to be be enjoyed by the whole family.
You will require:
Glow stick bracelets
Easter egg fillers
Huge plastic eggs
To Set Up Your Easter Egg Hunt:
Start by activating and gathering the glow stick bracelets.
Place them into huge plastic eggs alongside a treat or prize.
Seal the eggs, and you are good to go!
Hide the eggs outside just after dark, and afterward, have the children proceed to discover them!
You can call it both slime and play dough. It’s not quite slimy, but it isn’t quite play dough either. Regardless of the name, it’s a great science and sensory experience for the toddlers (and you!).
Marshmallow Slime Directions:
Place the marshmallows in a microwave-safe bowl.
Add one tablespoon of coconut oil to the bowl.
Put the bowl in the microwave for 30 seconds.
Remove the bowl from the microwave and mix the ingredients.
Add three to five tablespoons of cornstarch.
The mixture will be quite sticky but will reduce as you add the cornstarch.
Once the cornstarch is mixed in well, form the marshmallow slime into a ball.
Now that your marshmallow playdough is complete, it’s time to play!
