Hanging Easter EggsWhen you celebrate Easter with children or you throw a kids’ Easter party, it is important to have some games for them to play. This year you can mix up the routine a little bit with one or more of the following Easter party entertainment ideas.Easter Games

  1. Egg hunt. Of course you can’t go wrong with a classic Easter egg hunt. Depending on the age of the children, you can make it relatively easy or quite challenging.

  2. Treasure hunt or scavenger hunt. If you want to make the egg hunt idea a little more involved, consider turning the activity into a treasure hunt or scavenger hunt.

  3. Yarn maze. Run a string of yarn all through the house that kids have to collect in order to get to their Easter baskets or a special Easter surprise i.e. a stuffed animal, a large chocolate bunny etc. To increase the length of the maze, simply add more yarn.

  4. Egg and spoon race. Give each participant a spoon and a hard-boiled egg. The players must get from the start to the finish holding the egg in the spoon without dropping it. You can also turn this game into a relay race in which kids have to pass the egg from player to player.

  5. Pin the tail on the Easter bunny. This game is played just like pin the tail on the donkey except that you use a large picture of a bunny and paper or cotton ball bunny tails.

  6. Bunny hop race. Set up start and finish lines. Instead of running, the participants have to hop. This is a great activity for little kids. If they enjoy it, have them complete the race again using another method such as crawling on their hands and knees, skipping, galloping or crab walking.
