Toddlers are a unique blend of curiosity, newfound independence, kindness, and chaos. That is why I adore this age group and am amazed at how many wonderful things they can create and learn if given a chance. These easy Easter activities give toddlers that chance to explore their curiosity and creativity as well as work on essential skills like hand-eye coordination, fine motor skills, pre-literacy and pre-math skills, too. Activities with this age group (1-3 years old) tend to be quick. That is age-appropriate, so don’t force kids to keep going when they are done.
One trick I loved using while teaching was to offer more materials as the activity goes on. “Do you want glitter? I just found pink paint! Do you want some?” I would never require it, but offering options in smaller doses let them process it all carefully. Sometimes it stretches out the activity, and sometimes it doesn’t. Have a basket of Easter-themed books ready to extend the activity further. You can check out some of our favorite Easter books here.
