Easy Easter egg wash! Any chance to bring out a water activity is welcome around here! Our Easter eggs were pretty dirty from a very cool science experiment that we had just done! Click here for Baking Soda Easter Egg Science Activity! I thought what better timing to get some soapy water and scrubbers to clean them up and practice practical life skills. As always, for us, sensory play is an excellent way to learn, play and interact!

Set Up a Quick and Simple Easter Egg Wash

Easter Egg Washing Set Up

Our Easter egg wash includes many dollar store goodies such as plastic eggs, duck scrub brush, small squirt bottle, bath poof sponge and wire strainer for scooping eggs! I also tossed in a couple of small eye droppers that also needed to be cleaned out from the science experiment!

Easter Egg Washing Squirt Bottle

Add a squirt bottle for wonderful fine motor skills practice!


He thought the duck scrubber was especially funny and cleaned most of the eggs with it!

Easter Egg Washing Eye Dropper

This Easter egg was provided great fine motor skills with the eyedroppers. Plus they needed to be flushed out!

Easter Egg Washing Bath Sponge

Just like a bubble bath but for the eggs!

Easter Egg Washing Strainer

When he was done with the Easter egg wash, he used the strainer to drain them and then he spread them on a towel to dry. Now they are shiny and clean for our next Plastic Easter egg activity! I hope you enjoyed our Easter egg washing water sensory play! It just goes to show how simple play can be lots of fun and also great for practicing skills!
