2 Super Easy and Quick Last Minute Easter Activities for Toddlers and Preschoolers

2 quick and easy Easter activities

Happy Easter!  This morning Doodles and Oodles were dying to get outside to play but couldn’t as Mr G is cutting all the hedges with a supersized power tool of some description.  So for health and safety reasons and in order to maintain my sanity while struggling to keep two very outdoorsy children indoors I suggested we have some more Easter fun.  You can see what other Easter fun we have been having here, here and here !!!!!

Glittery Egg Decorations:

What you need:

  • Polystyrene eggs
  • PVA Glue
  • Glitter
  • Pins
  • Ribbon

I bought polystyrene eggs last Easter and we had a few left over so Oodles had great fun rolling the eggs in PVA glue and then rolling them in glitter.  I then pinned a ribbon to each so that they could be hung from one of our Easter trees (a branch I spray painted white).  There was a really lovely sensory quality to this activity and you can see that O was delighted with her sticky, glittery hands.  D wasn’t too keen to get covered in glitter this morning for some reason so he drew on his egg with markers – I think it is Shaggy from Scooby Doo!

Chocolate Covered Cornflakes Nests:

What you need:

  • Cornflakes
  • Melted chocolate
  • Mini Eggs
  • Bowl
  • Spoons
  • Bun cases

We typically make some version of these every year.  I have tried using Shredded Wheat in the past as well as Krispies but D and O prefer Cornflakes although Shredded Wheat look the best by far!  D took charge of mixing the cornflakes and chocolate, while eating most of the mixture!  They bought loved spooning the mixture into the cases and making little dents in the middle of each with their fingers.  They then placed a few mini eggs in egg “nest”, again while eating most – but hey, its Easter so you have to eat lots of chocolate!!!!!!!!

As I said, 2 super fast and easy activities but really great fun!

Happy Easter!
