Guess Which Egg

Put a small hard toy inside one of the eggs.

Give several of the eggs to your child and tell him to find the one with the item.

Show him/her how to shake the egg and listen for the item.

Which Egg is Hiding the Toy?

Use the bottom halves of 3 or 4 eggs.

Put a small toy under one of them and move them around while the child watches.

Ask them to find which egg half hides the toy.

At first, use different colored egg halves. Move them around and let the child figure out by color where you’ve put the toy.

When they get good at the game, use 3 egg halves of the same color and move them around while the child watches, before choosing where the toy is hidden.

Another Matching Game

Using the craft foam bases, your child can find all the circles, or all the squares.

They could make a row of circles above, and below it a row of squares with the colors matching the colors in the first row.

Hiding the Eggs

Don’t forget this fun game! Kids of all ages love hiding and hunting for the brightly colored eggs.

Use some fun eggs, too.

They can take turns hiding and finding the eggs.

Play this inside or outside. It’s a great activity when the weather is bad and kids can’t play outside.

I remember a very dear two year old that wanted a turn at hiding the eggs.

He put them all together like a little nest and put a pillow over it.

Then when we came into the room to look for the eggs, he ran to the pillow and lifted it up to find the eggs.

I loved his version of the game!


Be sure your toddler is supervised while using these items as they could be hazardous if your child puts them in his mouth.

Even the eggs can be a choking hazard for a small child.

  2. These are great! My daughter is four and LOVES to play with Easter eggs. She even has played make believe with them and pretends each one is a different character. Handy little toys, those eggs!

  3. What great ideas! I never thought to do much more than a regular egg hunt with Easter eggs – you’re so creative! Thanks so much for taking the time to link up with us over at the #HomeMattersParty – we hope to see you again this week! Feel free to bring a friend :)
