Week 10 – Easter eggs

30 Mar


Original Blog Inspiration: The Educator’s Spin on it


So I found these little plastic eggs at Woolies to use and snuck them out ready to go while Princess Peanut was having a nap. They are lovely and bright, but the down side is that they are really easy to pop apart. But Princess Peanut still had a ball. This activity kept her busy for at least an half an hour!


Here she is having a peak inside the jar. Princess Peanut also had fun just putting the lid of the jar on and off.


She loved hearing and watching them while she shook the jar.


After a while of playing and exploring I snuck one away and placed a pom pom inside.


“OOOOOH!” said Princess Peanut. We had fun with this little pom pom for awhile (I kept putting it in the egg and she kept discovering it and saying “oooh!”).


You can see how enthralled she is here.



SUMMARY/ VERDICT: Fantastic! Princess Peanut was enthralled for ages with this activity. I would like to do more with these eggs at a later date too.

EXTENSIONS/ ADAPTIONS: Hopefully next Easter we can find some new eggs that might be a bit thicker in plastic. These ones break easy. I also have a packet of larger eggs that we can hide things in and if I seal the little holes in them I could use them as shakers and a listening activity when Princess Peanut is older (i.e. different items inside the eggs and compare their sounds).
