Playing with Easter Egg Tracing Activity
There are several types of line in this activity. This includes straight lines, curvy lines and circle shapes.
All these create a pattern for your child’s Easter eggs.
Let them trace the 8 Easter eggs, then color them afterwards.
There are also 4 eggs without any tracing or pattern. These are made available especially for your toddlers to design their own eggs using their creativity.
Adding some twist to Easter Egg Tracing Activity
We can play with this Easter Egg Tracing Activity mat in various ways. Among other ideas include :
Toddlers love to play with any stickers. Miss 3, whenever she got a storybook with stickers, she would go to that sticker pages first to peel and paste them onto any surface – book’s pages, on the wall, on the dress, practically anywhere.
For this Easter Egg Tracing Activity, let your toddler put the dot stickers along the tracing lines of the eggs.
The eggs will look bright and interesting.
Dot stickers are great for toddlers to play with because, apart from them having fun, those little stickers actually good to enhance their fine motor skills and great for eye hand coordination practice.
This will be messy but oh so fun!
For messy play, you can do it either in big tray or put some old bed sheets as a layer under the activity mat.
Or you can let the kids play in dried swimming pool; so that it’s easier to clean up later.
Lotion or Shaving Cream
For this option, you need to laminate the mat first.
Once laminated, pour some lotion or shaving cream onto the Easter Egg Tracing Activity Mat.
Let your toddler find the eggs; then trace the eggs and the tracing lines on the egg using their bare fingers.
