Five simple Easter themed messy play ideas

We are ready to hop, skip and jump into Spring with the imminent arrival of our Easter Eggstravaganza messy play parties.

But if you wanted to try a little mess making at home, your little chicks can have some messy Easter fun with our five simple Easter themed messy play ideas

Check out our ideas below with five simple ideas to Spring into Easter:

Easter Egg Chocolate Gloop

No messy Easter activity would be complete without CHOCOLATE. We created chocolate gloop by mixing Cocoa Powder (or you can use Hot Chocolate) with a little cornflour and water to create an ooey, gooey texture. We added a few chocolate eggs to really get your Easter chocolate fix.  Gloop is a great texture to explore with little hands and you can scrape, pour and squelch.

Pom Pom Sorting

Not all messy play activities are a nightmare to clean and tidy up. We love the simplicity of this pom pom sorting activity. Simply grab some plastic tweezers (or scoops, spoons or pots) and get sorting!

Spaghetti Nests 

We used piles of coloured spaghetti to create these really cool Easter birds nests. You can add some plastic (or chocolate) eggs to really make our nests look like the real-deal. The great thing is your nests are taste safe and can easily be adapted with gluten free spaghetti if you have any wheat allergies.

Jelly Eggs

We love the simplicity of using the endless piles of plastic eggs we end up with at Easter to create some Jelly Egg bowls. Be sure to check if your eggs have any holes in before filling with jelly.

Chocolate Cloud Dough Nest

Our little chicks are having a great time exploring our yummy chocolate cloud dough. You can easily adapt our Cloud Dough recipe by adding chocolate powder or cocoa powder to give it an Easter twist.
