Easter Fun Ideas for Toddlers
No matter how prepared we seem for the holidays – I feel that sometimes we might miss a few important things.
Like, using the holidays to engage kids in skills they need to develop and build.
A tissue box and some colored pom poms will make for a super fun Easter color match activity.
Pick up your copy of this template at the end of this post!
Want to create a sensory bin with those chicks that you bought from Amazon?
This super simple setup is a great way to incorporate fine motor skills with your toddlers when using tongs.
Read how to set this up at the end of this post!
Here are some super fun Easter ideas for toddlers you can add to your learning corner:
Check out this simple card and paint activity from @CharisandAllegra on Instagram.
They used simple foam chicks to add to the idea, however you could also use these fluffy chicks from Amazon 60 for $12 not a bad bargain!
This rescue the eggs activity is a super cute one to play with plastic eggs – also from Amazon.
Kids LOVE these plastic eggs, add any letters or numbers you like inside the egg to include a literacy / math game while ‘hunting for eggs’.
You could also use tongs so that toddlers and preschoolers can practice their fine motor skills. This photo is credit to @Letsplaymummy on Instagram:
Another super simple activity featuring eggs, can be added to your centers.

The best part about this activity is that you can use your artistic skills to create the pattern on the eggs and have your toddlers match them up.
This is a great activity for working on visual discrimination skills.
Whether you’re a homeschooler, a teacher or a parent (or even all three – kudos to you!), I’m sure you will find some fun activities and ideas to add to your Easter activities.
You will even find that some activities below can be made using materials you already have on hand!

Easter Fine Motor Printables
This section will outline the printable activities found in my mega bundle of Fine Motor Easter activities on TPT.
This first activity will engage the kids in counting and number identification skills.
They will identify the number found on the ‘hen card’, count the number of eggs then find and use tongs to place that many chicks onto the card.
So much fun!
There are different versions of these ‘hen cards’ ones with empty baskets and numbers and ten frame cards.
Kids will love playing with these mini chicks.
Egg carton Easter activity kids
These colour pattern task cards will be a hit with your kids! Grab some empty egg cartons, some colourful chicks.
I bought mine from Baker Ross, but you can find the same ones here on Amazon.
Kids will identify the pattern on the card and follow it by recreating the pattern with coloured chicks into the egg carton.
How much fun is that?
You could even have the kids use tongs to pick up the chicks for added fine motor practice.
Pipe Cleaner Easter Craft
These task cards will have the kids using pipe cleaners and buttons to recreate the same pattern on their empty egg template.
Great way to include some fun and easy Fine Motor Easter Centers for Preschoolers!
Cut the pipe cleaners in half as they don’t need to be that long for this activity.
Place these in a container and add to your fine motor tub during Easter!
Beginning Sounds Easter Printable
This simple yet FUN activity will get the kids identifying letter sounds and matching the images to the letters on each egg (as they hatch).
So much fun!
This will have the kids working on their fine motor skills using the pegs.
Be sure to laminate those chick cards so they hold up on repeated use.
CVC Easter Printable Cards
Want to get more use out of your pipe cleaners?
Use them with this fine motor activity whilst getting the kids to identify CVC or short vowel sounds.
The kids will identify the image on the bunny, then find the CVC word on the right.
They will then use pipe cleaners to thread the matching line between the two.
They do this until all their ‘bunnies have carrots’!
The activities shown in this post are featured in my Easter Preschool Centers and Fine Motor Activities Bundle on TPT.
You can purchase it by following the link here or on the picture below.
Easter Tissue Box Activity
This FUN box was made in literally TWO minutes and kids were playing with it for hours!
To create this activity, print the coloured chicks template (click on the image below) and glue this onto the tissue box (top side down).
Create holes on each ‘chick’ and then prepare some medium sized pom poms (matching colours) on the side along with some tongs.
The kids will have a ball placing the pom poms using tongs into the correct matching chick to feed them!
When they’re done, pull out the pom poms (from the opening) and store them for use next time!

Sensory Easter Bin
This simple sensory tub is so much fun to set up! It takes just minimal materials too.
Here’s what you’ll need:
- Coloured rice or some simple fillers from the dollar store like the one I used below (shaved wood).
- Alligator tongs
- Mini coloured or clear cups (like the ones below)
- Colourful chicks
- Coloured pipe cleaners
To play, kids will pick up the pipe cleaners and place them into the matching coloured chick.
Be sure to cut the pipe cleaners in half to create small ‘worms’ to feed the chicks! 😉
I hope you found these fine motor Easter Activities for Preschoolers SUPER fun!
