My children love Easter and it’s always a fun time to incorporate that within out home play experience. These simple Easter egg sensory shakers for kids are lots of fun as you can add whatever filling you like.
Boo (aged 2 years) is just beginning to understand the excitement that comes with Easter. We are not a religious family, but the crafts, the baking, the anticipation of the Easter bunny and the joy is all loved by the whole family.
For some fun Boo and I made these simple Easter egg sensory shakers for kids! They were very easy to make and we had a great time shaking them to test out the different sounds that they made.

Simple Easter egg sensory shakers for kids
To make these simple Easter egg sensory shakers for kids we used –
- Clear plastic eggs
- Sticky tape
- Pom poms
- LEGO pieces
- Water beads
- Stars (not shown in this post)
I simply let Boo decide what she wanted each of the clear Easter eggs to be filled with. It was lovely to give her the opportunity to decide and go about filling them independently.
I used some clear sticky tape to seal the edge of the Easter egg and to ensure the contents of each would not come out. You might also choose to use a hot glue gun.
You can, of course, use whatever filling you have around the home that you think would make an interesting sound. I found a mixture of fillings that I knew would offer a variety of sounds. Soft and quiet sound were made by the pom poms and the hard and loud sounds were made by the LEGO pieces knocking against the plastic shell.
These were lots of fun and a great way to include a touch of Easter to our sensory play experience.
What else could you put in an Easter egg shaker?

These would look really cute hanging from an ‘easter tree’ display too!
