This is so easy and inexpensive and if you have a child who loves to open and close things, and discover surprises, like my Boogie, it is the perfect Easter activity!
All you need is a few different sized eggs, some pom poms, googly eyes, orange felt, and a glue gun and you have nesting eggs with cute little chicks inside!
One thing I love about this set is that the 3 different sized eggs are 3 different shades. I could have taken it a step further and put a colored chick in that went with the color of the egg, but I did that for one of Boogie's Easter trays, so I thought I would leave the chicks all yellow for these (which are going in his Easter sensory bin). If your child is old enough to differentiate between shades, you can have them line up the eggs from light to dark. Boogie is old enough for doing size order, but we haven't tried shades yet. I think he is too young but I will talk to him about it while we play with these.
The only tricky part with this set is that the biggest egg is not quite enough bigger than the middle egg to always close exactly right. I know there are larger sized eggs, but I worked with the ones I had. Walmart had the middle size, and the generic dollar store next to Walmart had the smallest ones. You could also put Easter egg erasers inside to keep the egg theme going if you have those on hand and aren't up to making chicks.
