Make an Easter Egg Water Sensory Play bin with colorful eggs, pastel water, and some glass marble gems. It’s irresistible!
Easter Egg Water Sensory Play – A simple and quick sensory bin for Easter. I used:
- warm, colored water (with food coloring)
- plastic Easter eggs
- large glass marble gems (those flat pebble looking things!)
My varied age group – from 10 years – 14 months (with supervision, of course) all enjoyed it!
About this sensory play experience:
- water is always inviting!
- color draws interest
- eggs float or sink depending on if there’s water in them
- water will drain from the holes in the egg
- marbles can be used to fill the eggs – shaking creates sound
- eggs offer fine motor fun when they are opened & closed
- eye-hand coordination development when little ones try to “catch the egg” as it floats
- sensory experience involves the senses of touch, sight, and hearing -the soothing sounds of water and socializing (sometimes taste too, with the little ones, although that’s discouraged!)
- allows for group play
Wash hands before and after sensory play. Supervise always when water and small objects are used. A small use of food coloring does not stain hands.
