One of my favorite craft items to use with my kids is washi tape. I don’t use it very often but when I do I always think that I should use it more often.
Check out this beautiful Easter craft to see why I am obsessed with washi tape. It’s especially beautiful when combined with water colours.
In this activity I use washi tape to secure a bunch of Easter eggs filled with small cheerios to our sensory table. Such a simple activity but so great for strengthening fine motor muscles. Those are the muscles that are necessary for writing later on! So you can say that this is a yummy pre-writing activity!
How to set up for Easter Egg Washi Tape Rescue Fine Motor Activity
I used washi tape for this activity in Easter colours – green, yellow, purple, pink and blue pastel colours. First I washed my Easter eggs and filled them with a few cheerios. I then secured them to the table with the washi tape. No washi tape? No problem! Use any type of tape you have at home.
How they played
When my toddler wake up from their naps they always want a snack. So when we were all downstairs they immediately were drawn this wonderful set up. I told them they had to free their snack but to do they had to free the Easter eggs from the tape and then open it up to find their snack.
I fed them a little snack before the dived right into this activity so that they were too hungry and they loved this!
Want to turn this activity into a learning activity? Add Pom Poms and colourful bowls instead of snacks and make this a colour sorting activity!
