Are you ready to host an Easter-themed tot school for your little friends? Grab some plastic eggs, take a trip your dollar store, and you’ll be good to go!
These eggs came from Target and they’re so fun for teaching emotions. Children can just explore them, they can make matches, they can grab the one you request (“Can you find an egg that is ANGRY?”), or they can practice opening and closing.
Everything on this tray is from the Dollar Tree (the egg plate, the plastic tongs, and the foam eggs). Kiddos can tong the eggs (which are actually ornaments that I just cut the ribbon loop off of) into the tray.
This sweet ice cube mold came from Ikea and I paired it with some plastic tweezers and sparkly pompoms. A little bit of Spring fun!
Again, this whole tray is compliments of the Dollar Tree! I grabbed a block of floral foam and matched it with some egg picks (not sure what the original use of these are!). Kids had to PUSH the pick through the styrofoam. It’s great for fine motor development!
Open and Close
I grabbed some containers and put a letter bead in each object. They had to figure out how to open the vessel and match it to the word card that I taped on the tray, spelling out the word EASTER!
File Folder Game
By adding some sparkly egg stickers to a file folder, and pairing it with erasers and a dice, kiddos can race to the end. It’s a great activity to practice counting and build number sense.
These sweet furry chicks came from Target and I matched them with labeled strawberry containers and a pair of tweezers. They had to classify and categorize the two differently sized chicks!
So what do you think? Are YOU ready to host an Easter-themed tot school?
