J’s been really into matching lately so I kept that in mind when I started thinking about Easter activities for him. The easiest way to play an Easter matching game was to have him match the top and bottoms of plastic eggs.
I pulled out 12 different eggs and pulled each one apart. At first I just dumped them into a plastic bin. I thought that it would be fun to add some water into the bin (like last year’s egg activity). I added some neon green food coloring to enhance the play some.
I used a muffin tin for J to place the eggs, and I added a few kitchen utensils too.
I know the water looks a bit like pee in the pics, but I swear it looked more neon green in real life.
J knew just what to do when he saw the eggs. He preferred to use his hands and pretty much ignored the utensils.
Not only is this a good matching game, it’s great for fine motor and gross motor skills too.
The water makes it a fun sensory experience!
All done! He was able to match each of the eggs and snap them all up too.
How do you play with plastic Easter eggs?
