I cannot believe that it’s March already! With Easter and Spring right around the corner it’s time to pull out the plastic eggs and have some fine more activity fun!
I love using items that I have had around the house from other craft projects or activities. I honestly cannot remember where I bought the small plastic eggs that were used in this fine motor activity but they are small enough to fit into a mini muffin pan. They do not pop open and are meant more for decoration then egg hunting.
I set out the eggs, a pair of egg tongs saved from a pack of Dudley egg dye, and a mini muffin pan. Next I called Lil’ Red over and the rest was history! He loved using the egg tongs to grab up the mini eggs and drop then into a slot in the mini muffin pan. What could be simpler then this?
You could easily extend the activity by counting the eggs, sorting them by color, or trying other fine motor tools like scoops, tweezers, or salad tongs. You could add water to see if they float. Whatever you decide to use or if you decide to keep your fine motor activity simple I am sure your child will have fun!
