Buttons and Eggs! Simple Easter Activity for Preschoolers
Buttons and plastic eggs are all you need for a fun and engaging Easter activity. There are so many ways to play with these two materials and set up couldn’t be easier. Just pour the buttons and eggs onto a tray, into a shallow container, or even right on the floor and let your preschoolers go at it!
I set this up for my son and his friend (both 3) at our play table in February, not even thinking of it as an Easter activity. We actually have plastic eggs in rotation throughout the year because the kids love them.
The kiddos went straight for the buttons. After feeling them and spreading them around the table a bit they began filling the eggs. They had a blast pouring buttons back and forth between egg halves.
Then of course they closed the eggs and made musical shakers!
