Looking for fun Easter games for kids? Try this oral motor activity as an Easter themed Minute to Win It game.

We've been doing a lot of oral motor activities lately for numerous reasons. 

My oldest son is a constant oral sensory seeker and chews on literally everything. So we do these types of activities to give him the oral sensory input that he needs. 

We also do these types of activities to work on self-regulation by learning and practicing controlled breathing.

This oral motor Easter game for kids is a great way to work on those oral motor and self-regulation breathing skills. 

However, it's also a great heavy work activity that encourages lots of proprioceptive sensory input as the kids crawl along the floor on their tummies. It also includes a color matching component for additional learning.

But you could also just play this for fun as an Easter themed Minute to Win It game.

Oral Motor Easter Activity for Kids: What You'll Need

For this oral motor activity, we used two items from the dollar store, in matching colors. They were:

The object of this game is to lay on your stomach (which is great proprioceptive input and a nice way to sneak in some heavy work) and blow the egg to the matching colored bunny. You can use only your mouth and no hands!

Since the foam eggs are so light, they blow easily, almost too easily, and can quickly go any direction. So this activity requires controlled breathing, which is an important self regulation skill to practice.

Grab the whole family and face off in this simple activity. I promise you'll all be laughing in no time!

The original goal was to get the foam eggs onto the matching bunny shapes, but since the eggs were a bit sporadic and tricky to control, we settled with beside or as close to the bunny as possible.
