My sister and I were looking at the dollar tree Easter goodies and eyeing some of the cute eggs with no idea what to do with them. Sparkles, glitter, crystals, and even carrot eggs piled high and not a single idea bit of inspiration hit.
This craft can become a great sensory activity by making several (it is cheap) with different fillings in each one.
This craft project is very easy. All you need is:
- 1 plastic Easter egg
- 2 plastic spoons
- 5-6 beads, beans, or seeds
- 1 strip of masking tape per child.
This simple Easter egg shaker craft is easy to make with your kids and a great way to spend time with your children and help them learn about music and sound. Have fun and try different fillings.
Simply fill the Easter egg shaker and place it between two spoons.
Tape below the egg so the kids can take the eggs out and switch things around to their little heart’s content. Washi Tape would be a great way to add a pop of color as would using more decorative plastic Easter eggs.
I love open-ended projects like this because you never know what your child’s imagination will end up creating. We had fun switching the fillings. The loudest filling we found was filling the eggs with coins and the softest was mini marshmallows. Anything around the house that fits becomes part of the fun.
This teaches music, art, science, and even math (are three coins louder than one?) You can get use out of those leftover plastic Easter eggs and have some learning fun at the same time.
This makes a great activity for kids to do on the spring equinox Ostara.
