Busy boxes are great when you need to pull out an activity quickly, at home or on the go! We have quite a collection by now, check it out HERE!
Make this Easter egg pattern busy box before Easter and have fun “decorating” the egg and work on patterns too!
Patterning is a pre-writing activity. The idea is to start the pattern at the left and work to the right, just as you would write. Also, copying a pattern works on visual perception, a skill children need for writing. The bonus, picking up the small buttons works on fine motor skills too!
For this busy box you need:
Line the lid of the box with a piece of felt. Cut a large egg shape that will fit in the lid too. I have added the buttons to a cute silicone cupcake liner, but you can simply add it to the box or use another small container.
