Dying Easter eggs is great and all, but there’s just one thing about it when it comes to toddlers—it involves using colored dye! How about some Easter activities for toddlers that are simple, fun and won’t stain every square inch of your toddler’s being.
A tisket, a tasket, a felt Easter basket! Your toddler will feel so excited to know that he made the basket he will then put his eggs into. Or he may likely only care about finding the eggs and eating the jelly beans. Well, anyway, you'll feel excited about the basket. Find out how to make it at One Charming Party.

Using shredded paper, glue and a bowl you and your toddler can produce this cool and creative bird's nest. What a great way to transform old newspaper, sales circulars and craft paper scraps into funky art.
