Top 7 Easter Games

27 March 2018 0 Comments
  • e’ve all taken part in a traditional Easter egg hunt, egg roll across the lawn or pin the tail on the bunny. But are there Easter games that would be fair for and appeal to every member of the family? Let’s take a look…

    What’s an Easter party without Easter games? There’d be no watching the little ones, toddling to stay on their feet, as they struggle to pick up brightly colored eggs and no laughing at Uncle Joe valiantly hopping across the finish line in a gunnysack. Good memories are made when the games appeal to all guests, regardless of age or religious beliefs. 

    Below are 7 fun Easter games you can try at your next holiday gathering.

    1. Easter egg hunt 
    No Easter party is complete without an Easter egg hunt. Traditional egg hunts involve the Easter bunny scattering eggs or egg-filled treasures across the yard or in the house for the children to find. 

    The problem with most hunts is that the older or more aggressive kids tend to get more goodies, while the little ones are left with nearly empty baskets. 

    Here are a few ideas to level the playing field and keep everyone happy:

    • Hide empty eggs and have the kids turn them in for a goody bag. This way, everyone gets the same treats, but they still have fun finding eggs.

    • Have each child find a set number of eggs – usually 15 or 20 – and then stop. Once everyone has found their share, you can turn them loose to find the remaining eggs – just be sure you’ve hidden extra ones.

    • Assign each participant a certain egg color. Have one child find all of the blue eggs, another child all the yellow eggs. This may even lead to some cooperation, as older kids help the younger kids find “their” color.

    • Give each child a certain egg-hunting domain. One child looks in the vegetable garden, while another checks the front lawn. This allows the children to hunt at their own pace without being bowled over by eager hunters.

    • Adult hunt. After the kids have found their eggs, let them hide some for the adults to find. They’ll discover it’s almost more fun to hide the eggs, and they’ll get a good laugh as the grownups miss some.
     

     

    (Thrift stores and garage sales are great places to look.) Set out glue guns, craft foam, ribbon, lace, artificial flowers and any other decorations you have available. Set a timer and have each team decorate their Easter bonnet. When they are done, you can judge them for tallest, funniest, etc. or just have an Easter parade in the back yard.

    2. Egg toss
    One of the most traditional Easter games for kids, watching raw eggs break, is too much fun to resist. Have each team of two line up facing each other a few feet apart. Hand each team a raw egg. One team member tosses the egg to the other. If they succeed without the egg breaking, they each take two steps backward and repeat. Keep the teams moving backward until only one team is remaining. Be sure to thoroughly wash the goo off your hands afterward!

    3. Animal pairs
    This is one of the loudest Easter games and can be played indoors or out. Give each child a piece of paper with an animal written on it. There should be at least three of each animal, depending on the size of the group. When someone says “go,” each child must act like his or her animal and make that animal’s sounds while finding others in the group. When all three have found each other, they should sit down together to signal they are done.

    4. Easter Pictionary
    This is a holiday twist on the traditional game. Get a large chalkboard and separate the party into groups.
