While I was stocking up on Easter supplies at the dollar store a few weeks ago, I grabbed a deviled egg tray on a whim. I wasn't sure what I would do with it at first but there had to be something! Over the past week, the babies have been having so much fun putting eggs into cartons that I decided to try a color matching game with them using the deviled egg tray.
For this activity, you will need:
- plastic deviled egg tray
- 12 Easter eggs in a variety of colors
- Sharpies or paint in colors that match the eggs
I colored a dot that matched the Easter eggs into each of the empty egg spaces. The object is for the babies to match their Easter eggs to the colors in the dots and put them in the right spot.The babies love Easter eggs so this was a really fun activity for them! They recently started being able to match colors and did a great job putting the eggs in the right spots.I used the eggs I had on hand but I think I would try more standard rainbow colors next time. The babies have been learning about colors in the rainbow - red, orange, yellow, etc. and recognize those. The eggs I had were white, yellow, teal, pink, bright green, and light blue. I think it was hard for them to differentiate the teal from the blue and the white does not have a dot so they needed a little prompting to figure out that space.
Overall though, this is a fun Easter egg activity for littles and we will be using it quite a bit for the next few weeks!
