I also wrote “Chick” and “Rabbit” on to two spare eggs so that the children could become familiar and recognise these Easter words as they play.
The plastic eggs are great for popping open and then back together again and even the toddlers enjoyed filing them and trying to connect them again. This is quite trick and not as easy as popping them open!
The shredded paper makes a fun (and not too messy) base to hide Easter objects in and the little ones love to rummage and see what they can find.
You could do a similar tray with just words in for a literacy based tray.
