I have gathered all my spring and Easter related books and toys for Hartley to play with. I have also made up a few Easter treasure baskets.
Easter Treasure Baskets
Hartley had fun exploring the nest. He then put his cuddly chick in it.
In this basket I put a few Easter items;
Chicks of different sizes
Wooden egg cup
Cute Footprint Easter CardsI found this lovely idea for Easter cards. They are very simple and even the smallest of babies can help you make them!In this Easter basket I have put in a variety of Easter items.
Just paint your little ones foot in yellow paint, cut out and then add an eye, beak, wing and legs.
Funky Paper Plate Chicks
First you paint a paper plate yellow.
Then paint your child's hands. You need 3 yellow and 2 orange hands for each chick.
Add eyes and a beak and you will end up with a very cute chick.
Older children will enjoy making their own, you could add feather, sequins, glitter etc
Hartley has always enjoyed playing with the simplest of objects rather than plastic toys with lots of sounds and lights. These plastic eggs are brilliant! You can pick them up from most discount shops. I placed them in an old egg box and put little chicks inside.
Hartley had so much fun opening and closing the eggs. Putting the chicks in and out of the egg. Emptying and filling the egg box. He has concentrated on this activity for long periods of time and goes back to the egg box lots of times during the day.
This activity is great for his fine motor skills and hand eye coordination.
Hartley's friend Esme brought these fab Easter Stampers for us to play with.
