Hide the eggs on a chair, under a table, and in a bucket. Help your toddler find the eggs, and describe where they were hidden while emphasizing the concepts (in, on, off, under, etc). For example, you can say, "The egg is under the table."
Count the eggs with your toddler once he or she has found all of them. Talk about the eggs, their color, shape, size, etc.
Fill plastic eggs with different items that have various textures and tastes. This can create a sensory rich experience. By stimulating the senses you are helping your toddler improve language and basic motor skills. Good plastic egg fillers for toddlers include gummy snacks, play dough, bubbles, small toys (make sure your toddler won't choke on them if he or she still mouths objects), and crackers.
Work on the action/vocabulary words open and close with your toddler. Your child can open the eggs to see what is inside. He or she can also close the eggs when finished.
Decorate an Easter egg with your toddler. Allow him or her to color it, paint it, or even use stickers. Here are some Easter Egg templates you can print and use for decorating. Coloring is such a fun activity for any toddler!
Read a book with your toddler about Easter, rabbits/bunnies, eggs or spring. Reading is one of the best activities you can do with your toddler to build speech and language skills. Toddlers also love looking at pictures in books, so don’t feel like you have to read the book if your child is not interested. Simply talk about the pictures as you point to them and describe what you see to your child.
