3 quick and easy steps to making an Easter egg playdough surprise gift 0

With the Easter holidays just around the corner, you may wish to have some fun activities tucked up your sleeve to keep everyone occupied.

Themes: Easter and spring

This is a great activity for the following reasons:

  • It’s quick and easy to set up
  • It develops fine motor skills in toddlers and preschoolers
  • It encourages children to become involved in the Easter festival by expressing themselves creatively through shared arts and crafts
  • It introduces and promotes the concept of kindness through sharing
  • It’s great for siblings and rainy days!


  • Fillable plastic eggs
  • Playdough
  • Pom pom bunnies

Fillable plastic eggs are easily available at most supermarkets and craft stores in the build up to Easter. As the size and quality of these plastic eggs varies greatly, you are better off buying these in person, and great deals can usually be found at this time of the year.
