Easter Educational Crafts and Activities: Babies and Preschoolers

Easter crafts and activities for toddlers and preschoolers can be easy and fun. What's most important is that you keep those little fingers engaged. Learn How!

Once you make it past the valentines and all the paper hearts and crafts, then (at least here in south Louisiana) you are making Mardi Gras masks and decorating shoe box floats.

Then comes spring, and with it, Easter.

Easter crafts and activities can be easy. Keep learning in mind and engage those little fingers in the fun.

Here are a few suggestions from your preschool for learning activities that your children will love to try at home.

Easter activities for Babies:

The best Easter activities for babies are typically easy little to no mess crafts that let them explore textures and the world around them.

Easter activities for Toddlers:

Keep those toddler hands busy with easy Easter activities the kids will love.

This helps work on independence and cognitive thinking.

Use those plastic Easter eggs again and have them sort them into separate colors, or hide little things like pom-poms inside the eggs that they can separate by size or color.

This is an example where they used smaller eggs; just ensure the size is age appropriate for your child.

Paper, markers, and some stickers are all you need for this easy craft idea. Toddlers will have so much fun placing the stickers, and there's no mess to clean up!

You can also add tissue paper or draw any sort of shape, maybe try an Easter Basket with egg stickers.

Easter activities for Pre-Schoolers:

Share the Easter holiday with your child, and practice skills they are learning in our program.

Easter preschool crafts are about learning and getting them to participate.

Early preschool age practicing letters and sound recognition can be fun.

Check out this super cute and simple craft. Kids will love helping with the glue!

For an easy activity for preschoolers, try this color by number.

Or get really creative and make your own. Use letters or shapes, anything you want to help them practice.

Make sure your preschooler is practicing good hand-holding techniques and working to stay in the lines when they are coloring.

This craft can be as easy as cutting out a shape that the child can color, then punching holes.

You can use yarn or shoelaces. Easter bunnies, Easter Baskets, carrots, or eggs, the options are endless.

Crafts like this can help with fine motor skills and learning patterns.

You can work with them in learning to lace them up and down or around the card.

Those older preschoolers can even start practicing making a bow at the ends.

No matter what Easter activities you and your baby, toddler, or preschooler decide on together, the most important thing to do is to simply have fun.  Enjoy your time together!

We'll handle your child with care!
