My sister and I where 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. Then we got home to find the March Mother Goose Time box had arrived with the Easter Celebration pack! Just when I needed Easter content for Simple at Home. Mother Goose Time saved me again… March came with an Easter craft I get to share with you.
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 between two spoons. Mother Goose Time recommends taping it around the egg but we discovered it is a lot more fun to tape below the egg so the kids can take the eggs out and switch things around to their little hearts content.
I love open-ended projects like his 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 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 left over plastic Easter eggs and have some learning fun at the same time.
