Sensory Play to Inspire Your Little Chef

My kids are always asking to help in the kitchen, but there are some things that I just don’t know if they’re quite ready to do. Egg cracking is one of those things! This simple slime recipe is a fun way to teach kiddos how to crack and handle eggs before helping with the real stuff! The fact that the recipe is taste-safe (aka not made with borax, glue, or boric acid), allows even the youngest kids to enjoy and explore! I love seeing the imaginative play that unfolds, as they begin cracking each egg into a pan to cook and serve!

How to Make This Simple Slime Recipe

Making slime is so simple with this DIY recipe. Bonus points for using taste safe ingredients that babies and toddlers can safely handle! Traditional slime has boric acid and sodium borate, which should not be ingested or put in the mouth – this recipe has none of that bad stuff! If you’re hoping to teach kids the best way to crack eggs with a fun sensory twist, they’ll have a lot of fun with this unique egg slime activity.

Plus, it’s a great way to use toy eggs, even if it isn’t Easter! And remember to do it during the Easter Holidays too along with our printable bundle of over 20 Easter and Spring Themed Activities. This bundle includes worksheets for practicing early childhood education skills, including alphabet recognition, number recognition, tracing, writing, coloring, counting, shapes, patterning, and so much more!

Educational Benefits for this fun Egg Slime Activity

Sensory Play. Did you know that sensory play has been said to create new nerve connections in the brain?! Yes, there is so much educational value in allowing your kiddo to experience sensory play. Sensory play is often long-lasting with a ton of engagement – even with young kids who have typically short attention spans. Plus, it provides opportunities for kids to play independently.

Additionaly, by making this activity taste-safe it allows even the youngest of kids to learn how to play with sensory bases. Taste-safe does not mean it is intended to be eaten, but it is safe if it is ingested. In other words, you do not want to encourage your toddler to eat the egg slime, but rather, if a child was to put it in their mouth and even consume it, this is the perfect opportunity to explain verbally that slime is not for the mouth and is not food. This is how they will learn to safely play with sensory bases of all types in the future!

Fine Motor Skills. Fine motor skills are so important! Slime itself allows kiddos to engage the small muscles in their hand and fingers. Think: stretching, pulling, smooshing. But you can extend that fine motor strengthening further by providing tools like whisks, spoons, and bowls where kids will also be able to practice some important practice life skills like pouring, transferring, and scooping!

Educational Benefits of this Hand-Eye Coordination Game!

This activity is such a fun hand-eye coordination game. Hand-eye coordination is so important in our daily lives, from pouring a cup of water, to reading and writing, to catching a ball.

In this game, hand-eye coordination is being strengthened as the eyes register where the eggshells are located and where to place the hammer down to make impact. Through the course of this game, movements can become more refined and accurate.

This activity is also a fun way to talk about the life cycle of a chicken! Explain how a chicken begins as an embryo in an egg, then becomes a hatchling, followed by a chick, and finally an adult chicken!
