Happy Monday, can you believe Easter it this weekend?! To kick off the Easter celebrations I’ve teamed up with some of my blogging friends to share some fun Easter crafts and Easter activities for you and your little ones to do during spring break.
I stumbled upon dinosaur Easter eggs at Dollar Tree that matched the dinosaur toys we recently found in the Bullseye’s Playground section of Target and knew instantly what our activity would be, an Easter egg hunt sensory bin, with a prehistoric twist!
- Sensory bin (we use a plastic tub from Dollar Tree)
- Easter grass
- Easter Eggs
- Dinosaur Toys (optional)
Setting up your sensory bin:
This sensory bin is super easy to set-up and very versatile. Simply fill your sensory bin with Easter grass and hide some Easter eggs for your little one to find in it. Since some of our Easter egg colors matched our Dinosaurs, we practiced color matching the dinosaur with their eggs – if you do not have these dinosaur toys you can opt to split the eggs in half before hiding them so your child can find the matching half or find other toys or blocks in your home that are the same colors to place around your bin. We also practiced some fine motor skills by opening and then try to close the eggs.
