During this week I set up an Easter themed sensory tray for BB. I had it out in the playroom on top of a small cupboard so that he could easily get to it and play with it when ever he liked.

Make sure you follow my Easter board on Pinterest for more ideas. Don’t forget to save the pin for later.

To make your own Easter sensory tray you will need:

  • Rice
  • Food colouring or paint
  • Plastic Easter eggs
  • Mini chicks
  • Spoons

Last year BB and I dyed some Easter eggs using rice. Rather than throw the batches of now dyed rice away, I kept them in air tight containers. If you don’t happen to have any dyed rice lying around at home, then it is very simple to make some. Simple add your rice and food dye, or paint, to a tupperware container and shake it until all the rice is covered. Then place the rice on a tray to dry.

When all the rice is dry, add it and all the rest of your items to a tray.

BB loves playing with his Easter sensory tray. I added a couple of hand scoopers to it as well to help with fine motor skills. BB somehow managed to find some of my crocodile tweezers and has added them to the tray as well.

If you enjoyed this Easter sensory tray be sure to check out my sock bunnies, fluid painted eggs, and Easter bonnet decoration.
