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 favorite Easter games:

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 team with 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.

Ring Toss: After the kids' Easter egg hunt, gather in the backyard for a game of ring toss. Try making your own ring-toss set.

Adult Easter Egg Decorating

Easter egg dyeing is definitely not just for kids—intricate designs call for an adult's attention to details, making this traditional activity just as fun for grownups. If you'd like to keep your eggs once the decorating is over, use ceramic or wooden eggs ($10, Amazon) instead of real ones.
