Fun Easter Games for Kids

easter eggs (284x177) (284x177)It is definitely a good idea to have few games ready for your Easter gathering – especially if there are children present. You can easily have these games organized ahead of time – when I do it, I have little plastic baskets filled with materials for each game ready to go on a moment’s notice. If you decide to do that, you will find out that it is very easy to call the kids together and occupy them for quite a while. And don’t be surprised if adults get involved as well – after all – being competitive is just human nature, even if it involves cupcakes and Easter Eggs!

 

Easter Cupcake Walk

Materials:

  • Cupcake for each child
  • Numbers taped to the floor
  • Easter basket to hold number call cards
  • Music

 How To Play:

When the music starts the children begin to walk around the room stepping on each of the numbers as they go. When the music stops the children should step on the number closest to them. A number is pulled from the Easter basket and the child standing on that number gets to choose a cupcake and return to their desk. That number is then removed from the floor and the bag. Continue until every child has a cupcake.

Egg Toss

Materials:

  • Large cardboard with Easter basket drawn on one side and a good size hole cut-out in center of basket, or a few small holes for older kids.
  • Colourful egg-shaped bean bags (Easter eggs)
  • Bucket to hold bean bags
  • Tape to mark distance line

How To Play:

Place cardboard basket a little distance from a wall with a paper box lid on floor to catch Easter egg bean bags. Mark your distance line according to age and skill of children. Line children up behind the line and place a bucket of Easter egg bean bags beside them. Give each child three tries to get their bean bag through the hole. Get all three Easter egg bean bags in and earn a ‘egg-licious’ reward.

Easter Egg Roll

  • 1 spoon for each team

 How To Play:

Divide children into teams. The goal is for the first person to roll the egg with the spoon to the end of the course and back. The person hands the spoon to the next person in line and the relay continues until a team finishes.
