Easter Games for Adults

Backyard Family Fun
Who says only kids can have fun on Easter? These Easter games and activities for adults mean everyone can join the festivities. We've got a ton of Easter party ideas for adults, including crafts, egg hunts, and baking exchanges. Plus, keep the Easter cocktails flowing for a hopping good time.

Easter Egg Decorating

Who said egg dyeing was just for kids? Intricate designs call for adult attention to details, making this traditional Easter activity just as fun for adults.

Strips of electrical tape add pretty pattern to your Easter eggs. Here's how to apply, dye, and remove the tape for one- or two-color eggs that will be the star of your Easter-egg hunt.

Electrical Tape Easter Eggs

Need a new Easter egg decorating idea? All this one takes is dye and electrical tape.

Easter Dessert Exchange

Thinking about including a new treat on your Easter sweets spread? Test delicious new recipes by hosting a baking exchange with your friends.

Adult Easter Egg Hunt

Another Easter activity that adults will enjoy? Easter egg hunts! Hide the eggs in spots you know are too hard for kids. To make this even more entertaining, keep the Easter cocktails flowing!

Easter Cocktails

Easter festivities call for bright, fruity cocktails like these Peach Bellinis. These sips pair perfectly with a classic Easter brunch.

Jelly Bean Guessing Game

Place a dish of spring-color jelly beans (make sure to count them first) in the center of every table, and have guests guess the number of candies in each. The winner gets to keep the candy -- it's up to them if they share or not!

Easter Baking Party

We all have that one baked good we make every Easter. This year, get a group together and bake together! You'll basically be turning your to-do list into a fun Easter activity.

Make a festive and affordable Easter basket by creating a pretty gingham garland to wrap around the handle. This fun craft by author and stylist Libbie Summers is a cinch and would be a great Easter activity for your kids.

More into crafts than baked goods? Host an Easter crafting party. We love this adorable garland that makes Easter decorating so easy.

Easter Egg Kerplunk

Instead of plastic balls, use plastic Easter eggs to play this classic game. Learn how to make this giant version of the classic game on All Parenting.

Backyard Games for Easter

All you really need for an afternoon of Easter activities is a backyard or park to play in. Some of our Easter game faves:

  • Egg Toss Partners stand across from each other and throw a raw egg back and forth. After each toss, they take a step backward. The last teamwith a whole egg wins!
  • Egg Darts Make a wooden target, and instead of darts, throw raw eggs. It's a bit messy, but you'll have no problem seeing where the egg hit the target!
  • Egg Bags Swap hard-boiled or plastic eggs for bean bags in the traditional tailgate game. Why? To get in the Easter spirit, that's why.
