Children can make beautifully decorated play dough Easter eggs, rabbits, butterflies, and any other fun spring play dough shapes. They will get to decorate them with various spring items, take them apart, and play again.

For this Easter play dough tray you will need play dough (we love to use homemade play dough following the recipe found at funlearningforkids), miscellaneous Easter parts like spring colored dyed noodles, Easter erasers, Easter eggs, styrofoam bunnies and chicks, and more.

Children can use this Easter invitation to play to create whatever they desire and use their creativity and imagination. For more Easter activity ideas be sure to also check out these Easter Egg Crafts for kids or this fun duck shaped craft for kids.

Play Dough Easter Eggs Sensory Play

This Play Dough tray is a great alternative to one of the playdough kits that you can purchase. However, they have some awesome ones through some great home sellers on Etsy that I would recommend checking out if you don’t have the time and money to make one yourself.

You could also use all of the different pieces in this play dough tray and make your own DIY play dough kits. You can put it in plastic divided cases, add in Easter cookie cutters, miscellaneous Easter pieces, dyed pasta, and more. Then package it all up, tie it with a cute ribbon, and add it to your little one’s Easter basket. I guarantee it will be a hit!
