So easy, nesting eggs Easter activity for kids! There’s nothing like a big basket of plastic Easter eggs! My son found this basket of eggs quite fun and quickly came up with his own fun ideas. I would definitely call this a great busy basket! He showed me his version of nesting eggs much like those nesting dolls. A very simple invitation to explore size and color with plastic Easter eggs!

NESTING EGGS EASTER ACTIVITY

Nesting Eggs Easter Activity  egg sorting and sizing activity for math and fine motor skills

There isn’t much to say about the activity. It speaks for itself really. Our nesting eggs Easter activity is a great simple math activity that involves sizing, sorting, and even patterning if desired. We also tried a very simple Spring classification activity with plastic eggs earlier this month.

SUPPLIES FOR NESTING EGGS

Plastic Eggs {varying sizes} I purchased 3 bags of eggs each a different size, plain and patterned.

SET UP FOR NESTING EGGS EASTER ACTIVITY

Empty eggs into basket and voila! You have set up your activity

Now my son made this up all by himself, but you could also model some activities using the plastic eggs yourself. I am pretty sure your kids will love to dive into this huge basket of plastic eggs too.

WHAT CAN YOU DO WITH THIS ACTIVITY?

Nesting Eggs is the original activity! Since we had three sizes, my son noticed they could fit inside one another!

Early childhood math includes lots of hands-on sorting activities including color, size, and shapes! Sort out by size, sort by color, and make groups of three for your nesting eggs Easter activity.
