Easter has passed, but I bet you still have some left over plastic eggs laying around! Last week we had a great time hunting eggs filled with paper that had a gross motor skill written on it. The kids took turns hunting & opening the eggs, but we all did the action together.
We had about 13 eggs, here are out gross motor skill suggestions:

I’m very fortunate to provide child care for a wonderful 2yo girl while her mommy goes to work as an occupational therapist during the week. With a mom who is an occupational therapist you can only imagine how many fun things and ideas she has of her own so when she brought us this cornstarch and (safe) dish soap mixture to play with last week we were so excited!
She suggested we add a bit of water to the dough to soften it up, but these kiddos seemed to be in the mood for more MESS so I continued to add water until it was the consistency of pancake batter. Lemon dish soap was used to make this batch so the smell was just delightful and the dough/batter was yellow. We can’t wait to make other flavors and colors.
The kids squeezed, mixed, mushed, splashed and dribbled the mixture everywhere as they pretended it was pancake batter, cupcake batter, shaving cream, lotion, lemon juice and the one that stuck most was CLEAN MUD! Clean mud is actually a toilet paper and soap mixture (which we are making this week), but my kiddos insisted THIS was in fact clean mud! Cornstarch dries quickly when left alone for a few minutes so clean up is extremely easy!
A BIG thank you to Mrs.Ann for introducing us to this amazing sensory recipe!
Like our Sticker Shape Trace I had a ton of Easter stickers we needed to use so the kiddos used them to trace their names.
This activity is so easy to put together and it lasts awhile, long enough to prep a lesson or do some laundry. The kids wanted to trace even more letters with stickers when they finished their names. This is a MUST DO activity!!!
