Tips for Decorating Easter Eggs with Rice and Food Coloring

Color Mixing Simplified: Experiment with different food coloring combinations for vibrant and unique egg designs. Try mixing primary colors to create a diverse palette of shades.

Optimal Coverage Ratio: Adjust the amount of rice and food coloring in containers to control the intensity of color on your eggs. Remember, less rice and more coloring yield bolder results.

Thorough Shaking Technique: Ensure uniform egg coverage by shaking containers vigorously. This distributes the coloring and rice evenly, resulting in beautifully marbled eggs.

Layering for Depth: Experiment with layering different colors to add depth to your eggs. Start with a base color and add layers of contrasting or complementary hues for a striking finish.

    Materials

    • Sealable containers (such as jars or plastic containers)
    • Gloves (optional, to keep hands clean)
    • Paper towels or drying rack (for drying the eggs after decorating)
    • Hard-boiled eggs
    • Food coloring (liquid or gel-based)
    • White rice (uncooked)
    • Sealable containers (such as jars or plastic containers)
    • Gloves (optional, to keep hands clean)
    • Paper towels or drying rack (for drying the eggs after decorating)

    Step-by-Step Instructions 

    Step 1

    Prepare your hard-boiled eggs.

    Step 2

    Fill sealable containers with rice and add a few drops of food coloring.

    Step 3

    Place eggs in the containers and shake gently until fully coated.

    Step 4

    Remove eggs and let them dry and enjoy your beautifully decorated Easter eggs!

    Step 5

    Spread the colored rice out on a tray or in a shallow container, and let your child explore its texture and vibrant colors. You can also add small toys or tools for imaginative play, or use the rice to create writing trays for practicing letters and shapes. Store any leftover colored rice in an airtight container for future sensory play sessions.

    diy easter card handprint bunny keepsake paper

    Tips for Creating the Perfect DIY Easter Card

    Mind the Thumb Placement: When tracing the handprint, ensure that the thumb is aligned along the fold of the card. This will create a seamless connection and allow the card to open smoothly.

    Choose Your Markers Wisely: To prevent bleeding through the paper, opt for high-quality markers or colored pencils. Alternatively, use thick paper or cardstock to provide a sturdy base for your artwork.

    Message Suggestions: Need inspiration for your card’s message? Consider these heartfelt suggestions:

    • “Some Bunny Loves You!”
    • “Hoppy Easter to Some Bunny Special!”
    • “Ears to a Wonderful Easter Filled with Joy and Happiness!”

    Materials

    Step-by-Step Instructions 

    Step 1

    Fold a piece of paper in half and trace your child’s handprint with the thumb aligned along the fold. Carefully trace around the hand, ensuring that the thumb remains connected to the fold. This will form the body of the bunny.

    Step 2

    With the handprint still folded, carefully cut along the traced lines. Be sure to keep the fold at the thumb intact, as this will create the bunny’s body and allow the card to open.

    Step 3

    Once the handprint is cut out, you’ll notice that the middle finger forms a gap. Use your scissors to carefully cut out this section, creating space for the bunny’s face. Then, on the pointer and ring fingers, draw the bunny ears. Fold the pinky finger forward to create the bunny’s arm.

    Step 4

    Using markers or colored pencils, draw the bunny’s eyes, mouth, and whiskers on the handprint. You can get creative with the expression, making it as cute or silly as you like! Finally, glue a small pom pom onto the bunny’s face to serve as its nose.

    Step 5

    Open up the handprint bunny card and write a heartfelt Easter message inside. You could use one of the suggested messages like “Some bunny loves you” or come up with your own punny greeting to make the recipient smile.

    Easter Activity Idea – How to Turn a Glove into a Bunny

    easter activity idea bunny glove blowing experiment

    Looking for a unique Easter activity idea that combines creativity and a bit of scientific magic? Look no further! Keep reading to find out how you can transform a simple disposable glove into a bunny you can blow up! But that’s not all – we’ll guide you through two exciting methods to bring your bunny glove to life. 

    Double the Fun with This Easter Activity Idea

    Not only will it be exciting to transform an ordinary household object like a rubber glove into a bunny, but the results of this bunny-themed Easter activity idea offers double the excitement! Once the glove has been crafted your kids can can explore making it come to life in two ways: by using a straw to fill it up with air, or conducting a baking soda and vinegar science experiment to fill it up via carbon dioxide gas. Try one method, or both!

     

    Skills: Arts and Crafts, Science

    Ages: 3+

    Prep Time: 15 min

    Easter Activity Idea Method 1: Blowing into a Straw

    Once the bunny has been crafted (see step by step directions below!), this method involves children using a straw to blow gently. As they blow, the bunny glove gradually inflates, revealing its adorable bunny shape.

    This activity isn’t just fun; it also offers valuable benefits for children’s oral motor skills, particularly in speech development. Blowing requires controlled exhalation, which helps strengthen respiratory muscles and improves breath control, crucial for speech production.

    Additionally, coordinating lip and tongue movements while blowing strengthens oral motor muscles essential for clear articulation. Furthermore, the sensory stimulation provided by blowing through a straw promotes awareness of oral movements and sensations, contributing to the refinement of oral motor skills.

    Playful activities like this encourage children to practice oral motor skills while making learning enjoyable and stimulating.

    Easter Activity Idea Method 2: Using Science to Inflate the Bunny

    The science experiment version offers an educational twist to this Easter activity idea, captivating young learners with its fascinating chemical reaction! 

    To begin, attach the crafted bunny glove to a recycled water bottle, ensuring a secure fit. Next, add vinegar to the bottle and place baking soda inside the glove. As the baking soda reacts with the vinegar, carbon dioxide gas is produced, causing the glove to inflate in a mesmerizing display. Be prepared that if too much gas builds up, the glove may pop!

    This chemical reaction not only entertains but also provides valuable learning opportunities for young learners. By observing the cause-and-effect relationship between the ingredients and the resulting gas production, children gain insights into basic chemistry principles in a hands-on and engaging manner.

    Additionally, conducting this science experiment fosters critical thinking skills as children hypothesize and experiment with different variables, such as the amount of baking soda or vinegar used. We love activities like this, the excitement of seeing the bunny glove inflate encourages curiosity and a love for science, laying a solid foundation for future exploration and learning.

    Materials

    Step-by-Step Instructions 

    Step 1

    Use glue or tape to secure the thumb and middle finger of the glove together, forming the bunny’s ears.

    Step 2

    Craft the face of the bunny using permanent marker for the eyes and mouth and a pom pom for the nose.

    Step 3

    Straw Method: Securely attach the bunny glove to a paper cup with a rubberband. Insert a straw into the cup, making sure it’s firmly in place and can’t easily come out. Encourage children to place their lips around the end of the straw and blow air into it gently. As they blow, the bunny glove will start to inflate, gradually revealing its adorable bunny shape.

    Step 4

    Science Experiment Method: Pour vinegar into the water bottle, filling it about halfway.  Carefully add baking soda to the glove. Securely attach the bunny glove to a plastic bottle with a rubber band making sure not to let the baking soda mix with the vinegar yet. Have your child lift the glove slightly so that the baking soda falls into the vinegar. As the baking soda reacts with the vinegar, carbon dioxide gas is produced, causing the glove to inflate.

    Tips for Creating These Easter Bunny Bags

    Cutting the Ear Shape: When cutting out the ears, take your time to ensure clean and precise edges. You can trace one ear first and then use that as a guide for all the remaining ears to draw and cut.

    Use a Strong Glue or Tape: Use a strong adhesive to firmly attach the paper ears, googly eyes and button nose to the paper bag. This will help prevent them from coming loose and ensure durability.

    Experiment with Colors and Patterns: Don’t be afraid to get creative with your materials! Mix and match different colors of paper, felt, or even patterned paper to customize your bunny bags and make each one unique. 

    Materials

    Step-by-Step Instructions 

    Step 1

    On white paper, cut out two large bunny ear shapes. On either pink paper or pink felt, cut out two smaller bunny ear shapes to make the inner ear.

    Step 2

    Glue the inner ear on top of the outer white paper ear and then glue each of the ears to the paper bag by applying glue to the bottom edge of each bunny ear and then positioning them onto the top edge of the paper bag.

    Step 3

    Glue two googly eyes, a button for a nose, and draw whiskers and a mouth with a black marker.

    Step 4

    Once the glue has dried, fill with treats or a small gift!

    Tips for Using the Eggmazing Egg Decorator

    The Eggmazing Egg Decorator is super easy to use! All you have to do is add a fully cooled hard-boiled egg into the holder, push the on button, and then use the non-toxic colorful pens to decorate! Here are a few other tips:

    Choice of Egg. If using a real egg, it’s best to boil them beforehand giving them plenty of time to cool. Any color egg will work, but white is always best for a truly blank canvas. We had brown eggs so that’s what we used and you can see in the photos that the colors still came out super vibrant. You can also use wooden eggs!

    Choice of Markers. Can you use any markers with this toy? I wouldn’t recommend it. I would use the colorful pens that come with this toy as they were designed specifically for it. They also dry extremely fast, and that means that the artwork isn’t going to smear or spread at all, which is excellent.

    Extra Benefits of Crafting with the Eggmazing Egg Decorator

    I love this Eggmazing Egg Decorator kit because it teaches kids the importance of following directions and also how to hold their hand steady to create a stunning work of art. Even kids who struggle with their fine motor skills and holding a pen will be excited to use these markers to decorate the eggs! 

    The kit also allows them to be creative and make their own unique designs on the eggs as well. This means that they’ll build confidence in their artistic abilities!

    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!

    It is so fun to watch your toddler giggle with joy as they see the carrot go in the bunny’s mouth and end up in the bunny’s tummy. These are the building blocks of scientific curiosity that will stay with them for years.

    Teach Fine Motor Skills With This Toddler Activity

    This is a really cute and fun game for both toddlers and preschoolers. The immediate reward of seeing the carrots in the bunny’s tummy encourages them to keep playing. This is a fun game for independent play or for young children to play together.

    It’s not just a game, it’s a repetitious exercise for those all-important fine motor skills. It’s so fun to feed that cute bunny the soft carrots and see them in their tummy.

    In this video you can see my toddler playing the game over and over again! After the video is the written tutorial with all the materials and steps listed out for you.

    Materials 

    Step-by-Step Instructions 

    Step 1

    Draw a bunny on top of an old box, or download our free printable below and tape it to the box instead!

    Step 2

    Cut a hole for the mouth and the belly.

    Step 3

    Place the plastic bag inside the box, with the zipper-side facing up. Make sure it begins above the mouth and you can see it within the belly.

    Step 4

    Before taping the plastic bag down, trace a hole on the plastic bag where the mouth is, and cut out the hole on the side of the bag facing the mouth

    Step 5

    Secure the plastic bag on each side with tape, and secure the plastic around the mouth hole with tape as well. This will allow the carrots to enter through the mouth, and fall into the bag for a fun transparent view as well as easy retrieval.

    Step 6

    For a vertical set up, tape the cardboard box to the wall, leaving the top part of the box open so that you can retrieve the carrots!

    Step 7

    To make the carrots, cut 3-4 green pipe cleaners for the stems. Wrap an orange pipe cleaner around the stems. Make them really tight at first and then a little looser until you reach the end. This will make it look wide at the top and thin at the bottom.

    Educational Benefits of the Feed the Bunny Toddler Activity

    There are so many wonderful things that this simple game can teach your child!

    The very first skill you’ll notice it strengthening is hand-eye coordination. That bunny’s mouth is just the right size for the carrots, so your child has to match it up just right.

    As they pick up the small carrots and push them through the bunny’s mouth, your toddler is exercising fine motor skills that they will use for things like writing and self-care (tying shoes).

    Early Science Skills: This little bunny game teaches science too.  They begin to learn the connection between food and the tummy as they see the carrots go from the mouth to the stomach.

    If you want to teach your child early math, you can ask them to count how many carrots they feed to the bunny. Older children can practice addition and subtraction. “Put 2+2 carrots in the bunny’s belly.” Or “If you have 5 carrots and give the bunny 3 of the, how many do you have left?”
