Egg-citing Easter Activities

With Easter quickly upon us, we have drug out all the Easter eggs for some Easter fun.

One game they like to play is to throw them in the bucket and then dump them all out. I also name the color of the egg as we do that or count the number of eggs we are dropping in.
They love all things that are noisy so I made them some shakers with random things I found around the house. I put things like cheerios, puffs, goldfish, beans, and m&ms. How cute are these eggs? I found them at Target.
DISCLAIMER: If you put things in it that are not edible you will want to glue them shut. And even if it is edible you will want to supervise them so they don't choke.


And our favorite game is match the egg to the cup. These are those cups you can buy to dye Easter eggs in and they just so happened to match the plastic eggs I had. Since my boys are only 15 months, I started out with just 2 colors. Here is a video of one of my little sweet peas Gabe matching his colors.

They also love to hide the eggs underneath the cups.

And so the boys know the true meaning of Easter we have been reading What Is Easter? which I had bought last year for their Easter baskets.

Maybe next year we will do this "Simple Easter Countdown" from How Does She. My mom used to do something similar but she called it Resurrection Eggs.
