Easter egg activities come in all shapes and sizes, and use many different materials. 

This felt activity is a simple way to provide an Easter egg activity that supports so many early learning skills. It combines fine motor and sensory fun, while promoting math skills such as counting and sorting.

Felt is an awesome material to use in crafts . It is easy to work with and very durable for kids to handle over and over.

We've used other materials to make eggs, especially recyclables.

This felt activity provides more ways for kids to use materials hands-on to explore and learn.

It promotes color recognition along with the math and sensory play. Kids will sort, count and match colors and shapes, and copy patterns.

They also have the opportunity to create new designs, and engage fine motor skills to decorate the eggs.

Invite kids to create Easter eggs with this felt tray activity that is easy to set up and mess free!
