After the Easter baskets have been revealed and the Easter egg hunt is over, there are so many fun toddler Easter activities that you can do using basic supplies. With all of these fun ideas, you are sure to find something your child will love! Grab some plastic eggs, take a trip to your dollar store, and you’ll be good to go! These Easter themed Toddler activities are the best ideas and so much fun this time of year.
Push and Arrange
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 a great fine motor activity!
Open and Close
DIY Easter Board Game
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 sort the two different sized chicks!
Use empty egg cartons and plastic eggs to give these simple activities a try. These are easy ways to practice different concepts.
Spell your name with Easter eggs by matching the letter on the egg to the egg carton.
Sort Easter eggs with large eggs on the top row and smaller eggs on the bottom row. You can also turn this into a matching activity with matching colored eggs in the bottom row.
Count down to Easter with a carton of eggs. Put a piece of candy in each egg (like jelly beans) and open one a day until Easter morning.
Try an Easter egg listening game. Take plastic eggs that you have on hand. Fill pairs of eggs with different contents. Shake them to find the eggs that match.
Download and print this set of Easter egg puzzles for your toddler! The puzzles include two, three, or four pieces. You can also put magnets on the back of the pieces and challenge your child to put them together on a vertical surface such as a magnetic easel or fridge. Working on a vertical surface is so beneficial for toddlers and preschoolers.
Print your own Easter Board Game for Toddlers and die for a fun game! Your child will love to play this game over and over again. This game focuses on colors and visual discrimination.
Does your child love egg hunts? Try an Easter egg puzzle hunt. Take a puzzle that your child loves. Put a piece in each egg and hide the eggs around the room. Find the eggs and put the puzzle together. For a toddler, the pieces will be bigger than what is pictured, but there are large plastic eggs that they can fit in.
