When I first decided to start doing these weekly activities in earnest, Easter tot trays and activities were the first ones I ever saw and pinned. That said, we really could have planned a LOT of activities for this week! It is going to be a busy one though so I only selected a few. (I also made big rice sensory bin for our family Easter gathering.)
You can also jump ahead to next year with our set of Easter Preschool Trays!
So, here are our 7 fun and simple Easter tot trays, plus a no-brainer Sensory Bin!
- Easter Sensory Bin
- Bunny Tail Gluing
- Bunny Tongs & Eggs
- Egg Color Match
- Easter Play Dough
- Easter Coloring Pages
- Pastel Cups & Pompoms
- Bunny Tail Color Match
- Hide & Squeak Eggs
- Books & Stuffed Animals
- Different colors and textures of Easter basket grass, either from the dollar store or saved from previous years
- Dollar store fillers: small plastic eggs, glittery decorative eggs, and Easter-themed erasers
- Also included some plastic Easter cups and barrel of monkeys-style rabbits set that we already had
- I also added a couple small Easter baskets so he could ‘fill’ them for us
- First, created a simple “bunny butt” graphic in Word using three circles and two triangles
- Printed on cardstock
- Included cotton balls and glue sticks to attach bunny “tails”
- Included crayons to color
- May also include scissors for him to cut bunnies out
- Included six colorful plastic eggs and fun bunny tongs from Michaels (about 50 cents on sale)
- Use the tongs to put the eggs in and out of tray
- Put pieces in Easter egg silicone tray we already had
- I can’t find where I got this printable from — but thank you!! Please post if this is yours.
- Instead of criss crossing lines to match eggs, we will have him color in the egg across from the colored one and draw a line between the two
- Included skinny markers in the five egg colors
- More play dough!
- We simply added this cute set of Easter cookie cutters
- We also included some pieces from the DUKTING 7-piece baking set from IKEA
- Printed three simple coloring pages
- With other crayons and markers on other trays we will let him choose what he wants to color with
- Used five egg coloring cups we had from a couple years ago
- Included pom poms to match each cup, about 10 of each color
- Also included tongs to put pom poms in and out
- Put all of this in a fun old Easter bucket
- Used the same template as Bunny Tail Gluing above
- Printed six bunnies on cardstock
- Colored in tails with a Sharpie, then laminated the bunnies
- Included both a set of soda bottle lids and pom poms in matching colors
- This is the older version of the TOMY Little Chirpers Sorting Eggs
- I simply brought this ‘upstairs’ toy downstairs this week as it matches our theme!
- Usually this bin is just full of related books, such as My First Easter by Tomie dePaola, and Happy Easter, Curious George by H.A. Rey. But, this time I included some cute Easter-themed stuffed animals, too!
Seeing all the activities in one place shows we ended up with several color matching activities as well as two with tongs! But, it was a fun week, with Easter evident everywhere we went. And, now we have plenty of plastic eggs for activities all year long!
