This week we continued our break from animal themed baby bins to have all kinds of fun with eggs, bunnies, and baskets for Easter.
Here is a look at our second set of 6 seasonal themed baby bins:
Here are the details for each of our activities:
Easter Theme Book:
Our read aloud this week was Happy Easter Mouse! by Laura Numeroff. We love all of her books, but this one was really great for Aubrey because Mouse hides Easter eggs in all different colors. We used it as a review of the colors she knows and to work on remembering the colors she still can’t identify.
Glowing Eggs Sensory Bin:
Feed the Bunny:
In this bin: split peas, fillable plastic carrots, stuffed bunny
Easter Egg Bubble Bath:
In this bin: plastic eggs, colored cups, water, bubble bath
This activity can be done as either a sensory bin or in the bathtub, but whenever I need a few minutes to gather my thoughts and renew my patience, a mid day bath usually does the trick. So instead of throwing our eggs in a sensory bin, we jumped in the tub and played with them in the bubble bath. Don’t be afraid to put your own twist on any of our activities. You know your kids and what they like best so run with it whenever possible!
Tie Dye Easter Eggs:
If you love the look of tie dye, but not the mess, check out this super simple tie dye craft using…BABY WIPES! Who knew right? So for this easy craft I cut baby wipes into egg shapes, folded them in half, twisted sections and secured them with rubber bands. Then Aubrey used watercolor markers to color all of the sections of the twisted baby wipe. After we allowed the wipe eggs to dry overnight, we removed the rubber bands to reveal tie dye eggs!
