Eggs, Paint, and HopscotchI have seen some of these activities all over Pinterest and decided to give them a try with my son. Like all of my craft projects, these were cheap and easy!
1. Easter Egg Matching Game
I started with eggs from Hobby Lobby (84 cents for a dozen) and used a Sharpie to make a matching game with numbers and letters. This game was a hit with my son and he liked to stack the egg halves to build towers.
2. Paint in a Bag
Ziploc Bag plus one container of $1 craft paint = success. My son had a great time drawing on the bag. However, this activity was somewhat short lived as we discovered it was pretty easy to poke holes in the bag. I would supervise your child closely with this activity.
hmmmm, looks like I need to reverse the 3,4,6,7 but oh well. My son is in LOVE with this game. Who can blame him, it involves jumping and a rock. If you are like me and not quite sure how to really play hopscotch, check out this YouTube video.
4. Toddler Stilts
I love this idea from Made by Joel. He has some great directions on how to make the stilts and I really like the idea of starting with a block of wood instead of a coffee can.
5. Wacky Sacks
A quick run to the Dollar Store and you have all the supplies you need to make these cute stress balls. What a great idea from Somewhat Simple!
