You're bound to feel eggs-cited with our games of Easter fun. So let's get crackin' and start hopping your way to an eggs-traordinary good time!
Bunny Count All players sit in a circle. Players take turns counting off numbers one by one: 1,2,3,4....When the number seven is reached, that player must say, "I love the Easter Bunny," instead of the number seven. When the player fails to do so and says seven, the player is out of the game. Start over at one each time 7 or I love the Easter Bunny, is said. The game continues until only one player is left to be declared the winner.
Hot Egg Play hot potato with a hard-boiled egg.
Egg Rolling Take a hard-boiled egg for each person along with a hockey stick or bat. Each person stands at the starting line. The egg is placed on the ground and pushed along with the stick to the finish line. The hockey stick must stay below waist level, and the egg cannont crack or break. The first one to the finish line wins.
Pin the Tail on the Bunny Just like pin the tail on the donkey using cotton balls with tape on them.
Egg Bowling Use colored hard-boiled eggs and one white hard boiled egg. Roll the white one into the center of a room and take turns to see who can roll their colored egg closest to the white egg.
Easter Bunny Tag Everyone knows how to play tag. This game is played in the same fashion except that everyone must hop. If you don't hop, then you are automatically "it."
Egg Hunt for Wee Ones Use plastic Easter eggs and let the younger ones find as many as they can. No matter how many eggs they find, everyone gets the same prize.
Golden Easter Egg Hide a gold Easter egg with a dollar in it. This makes the hunt even more exciting. Put plenty of eggs in plain view if you have younger ones to keep their interest. Finding the golden egg is a real delight.
Bunny, Bunny Hop.... This game is like duck, duck goose with a hop. Change the words to bunny as you tap each child and hop when one child is selected. Instead of running around the circle, players hop with their feet together.
Egg Toss This game is played in pairs. Each pair faces each other at a starting line. Each pair is given one egg. The person with the egg tosses it to the person without it. With each toss, each person takes a large step backwards. This continues until they successfully reach an end mark and then return to the starting line with an unbroken egg. If a couple does not successfully complete their toss and the egg breaks, they are out of the game.
Duck Races Players line up on a start line. At the signal, they all bend over and grasp their ankles. The first one to waddle to the finish line without letting go of his or her ankles is the winner!
