Toddlers are a special blend of curiosity, new found 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 the chance. These easy Easter activities give toddlers that chance to explore their curiosity and creativity as well as work on important 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 lets them process it all carefully. Sometimes it stretches out the activity, 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.
