Easter Activities for Babies

Easter Activities for Babies - Diary of a New Mommy

Easter is just around the corner and while your baby may be too young for an Easter Egg Hunt there are still plenty of activities for him/her to enjoy! Here are some ideas on how you can play with your baby using plastic eggs.

Easter Activities for Babies:

Easter Egg Shakers – Babies love to shake stuff up! Get a plastic Easter egg (I prefer large ones for safety reasons) and fill it up with rice, pasta or beans. Or you could fill multiple eggs each with a different filler. Tape the egg up. I used clear packing tape. My son love his egg shaker!

Egg Crawl (or Waddle!) – Place plastic eggs around the room and encourage your baby to crawl or walk to collect the eggs. For safety, tape the eggs up. Again, big eggs might be preferable. Especially for younger babies.

Eggs in the Basket – Help your baby put eggs in (and out of) a basket. You can count the eggs with your baby, identify the colors or you could even use your egg shakers and shake them up as you put them in the basket.

Crack the Egg Place sensory items such as felt, fabric, tissue paper (just be sure to closely supervise so baby doesn’t eat it) inside eggs. I even used a sock! Help your baby “crack” open the eggs and take out the sensory items. Talk to your baby about the item’s color, texture, sound, etc.

Again, I strongly recommend taping the eggs for these activities (except for “crack the egg”) and I prefer to use larger eggs because they can’t fit in my son’s mouth! Adult supervision is strictly advised.

    My baby daughter is very much into putting things in and taking things out of something, so I think the activity of putting eggs in the basket and taking them out again would be perfect for her!
