Easter Party Games


Easter egg hunt

This is an old favourite and is always great fun for all ages

 

You will need:

Chocolate Easter Eggs (Mini eggs are ideal)

Small baskets or bowls to collect them in (see our Easter boxes and bags)

 

Your Easter Egg Hunt and take place either outside or indoors depending on the weather.  Hide your eggs in various places around your chosen area (remember where you've hidden the eggs or you could be finding them for days afterwards).

 

If you have a wide age range playing, you can set a limit on the number of eggs each child can find.  This avoids the older children finding all the eggs.

 

Easter Bunny Says

This is a twist on the classic Simon Says game, replacing “Simon Says” with “The Easter Bunny Says”.

 

You can choose a child or adult to be the Bunny. The Bunny will say ' the Easter Bunny says...' and the rest of the children will carry out the instruction - for instance when the Bunny says “The Easter Bunny Says hop on one leg” all the players apart from the Bunny should hop on one leg.

 

When the Bunny gives an instruction but doesn’t say “the Easter Bunny says” at the beginning, then anybody who follows the instruction is out of the game.

 

The winner is the last child remaining.

 

Easter bunny tag

This is a twist on the classic tag game but instead of running everybody hops. 

One child starts as “it” and they hop around to try and tag another player by touching them and shouting “it”. 

The new “it” must then shout loudly that they are “it” (they can not tag the person who caught them).  This is a good game to burn of some energy after all those Easter eggs.


Easter egg bowling

You will need:

One large Easter egg

Small eggs for each person (can use a chocolate creme egg or each person can decorate a hard boiled egg)

 

How to play

Place the larger egg at one end of the room and give each child a smaller egg.  Each person then takes it in turn to roll their egg from the other end of the room in just one roll.  The winner is the one whose egg stops nearest to the large egg. 

 

Egg and spoon race

You will need:

Hard-boiled eggs for everybody

A large spoon for each person

Chalk or tape to mark the start and finish lines

 

Mark out a start and finish line.  Give each person an egg and spoon at the start line. When the race starts each player runs towards the finish line trying to keep their egg on the spoon (without touching the egg). The winner is the first person to reach the finish line with their egg on their spoon.

 

To make the game more fun you can put obstacles in the way or play it as a relay race.

 

You could also have the children paint their eggs prior to the race, they will love it and it will keep them entertained while you set up the game.

Everyone takes one turn at guessing how many eggs/sweets are in the jar and the person who guesses the nearest gets to take the jar of eggs/sweets home.
