So I was so excited to have found plastic eggs! I don’t know if I’ve just missed them last year, since I only started blogging around July, and only now realizes how much one can do with them after seeing so much inspiration from fellow bloggers, like P is for Preschooler, Scribble Doodle and Draw and JDaniel 4s Mom, to name a few!
Now here is how we played:
I’ve added some small items(beads, buttons etc.) to the eggs, just for the reason that there is something “to find” inside! Note that the items are the same colours than the eggs to do some colour sorting and matching activities.
Of course we played egg hunting, again and again, and again, inside the house, outside in the garden! This was Lella’s favourite activity! To check that she had found all the eggs, she had to check that each egg has his friend(same colour eggs are friends).
We counted, and sorted and matched colours, with the eggs alone and also with the small items and the eggs.
We played the eggs got silly(mixed up colours), and then she had to correct them.
Oh, we had an egg bath too! That was so much fun, 15month old brother also enjoyed playing with the eggs in the bath, scooping water, watching as it trickles through the small holes, stacking the pieces etc.
Tomorrow we will be having an Easter Egg Painting and Hunt for the craft studio kids and we might just use these eggs too! (I will update this post with more fun things as we play)
