It’s almost time for Easter so let’s make a sensory bag that’s full of Easter eggs and spring colors for kids to play with. The eggs we use won’t crack, and this sensory activity is mess-free, and can be played with during the whole month of April. It’s the perfect fun activity to give kids as they wait for the Easter bunny.

I have been trying to figure out how to make an Easter themed sensory bag with eggs for a while. I knew that plastic eggs were going to be too big to use. After searching the craft stores I finally found the right size eggs to purchase (on amazon of course…I think it has everything). These adorable little Easter Eggs are perfect for sensory activities since they are small, colorful, and float you could also use the extras to make a cute Easter craft or add them to an Easter Sensory Bin.

As soon as I made our Easter Egg Sensory Bag, my Little Pup (preschool, age 3), felt drawn to explore it. His little hands patted, poked, and had lots of Easter fun! You can see his little hands play on our video tutorial, and of course, once you make your own, you will see for yourself how excited your kiddos are and what a great activity it is. 

Why I Like Making Sensory Bags

  • Sensory bags provide children with sensory play without getting messy like can often happen with a sensory bin. 
  • They can help with your child’s development; as children move things inside the sensory bag they can learn cause and effect, observe the movement of objects in a liquid, and work on fine motor skills. 
  • Children wont taste the activity because it is in a bag. 
  • Sensory bags can be calming and great to keep around all month long to use again and again.

When Do We Play With Our Sensory Bags

I let my kids have access to their sensory bags in a supervised room, all the time. They will play with them on their own when “mom” is busy (darn laundry), or when they have some quiet time.

Supplies:

Little Easter Eggs

Leak-Proof Bag (I like to use Reusable Food Bags to save money and they seal really well. You can also use Ziploc Freezer bags ).

Water

Optional

Styrofoam balls

Water beads

Food coloring

Clear hair gel

Glitter

Easter Washi Tape

Directions:

For your convenience, you can watch our Video Tutorial to see how to make it. The directions can be printed for free, found towards the end of this post. 

Open the bag and put the little Easter eggs inside. 

Now add any optional supplies like styrofoam balls, water beads, food coloring, or glitter. 

Carefully pour in water. You can decide how much water you want to use. The more water, the more pillow-shaped your bag will become. 

Tip: If you want the items in your sensory bag to move slower add some clear hair gel to the water to create resistance. 

Seal the bag closed.

Tip: If you are worried about your kiddos opening the bag, use tape across the opening to keep it closed. The resealable bags I use close really well and are hard to open, however you never know what curious hands might try so a little bit of tape is never a bag idea.
