No holiday is complete without games & activities, especially if you're having company coming over -- or a house or classroom full of eager kids!
Besides traditional Easter egg coloring, fun activities at your next Easter holiday gathering can include a good old-fashioned egg relay race or Easter-themed scavenger hunt out in the backyard for kids and adults of all ages.
A game of Easter trivia is always a leisurely way to gather with family. If you observes the tradition, having guests decorate the Easter tree is another wonderful group activity. For the younger set, a bunny hop relay is fun for outdoor play. Meanwhile, a round of "Pin the Tail on the Bunny" can easily be arranged indoors with the help of Easter Bunny clip art and a cotton ball for the tail.
For hours of Easter crafts fun for the little ones, also be sure to have a table set up with construction paper, craft glue, glitter and cotton balls, coloring pages and crayons.
For holiday gatherings for friends and family, the following ideas will also provide lots of Easter party fun for older kids, adults,...and kids at heart!
How Many Jelly Beans? Have paper, pencils, and a jar of jelly beans ready when guests first
arrive. Ask each of them to guess how many jelly beans are in the jar.
As entries are written down on slips of paper they are deposited in an
Easter basket. The one who comes closest to guessing the exact
number wins the jar of jelly beans to take home at the end of the party...
Pass the Easter Bonnet - A bit like 'pass the parcel' but instead party guests have to try on an Easter bonnet
(bunny ears work as well.) Start the music as it is passed from one player to another.
When the music stops, the guest wearing the bonnet is out of the game. For extra
laughs, give eliminated players the option to perform a bunny "hop" to get back into the
Extreme Easter Egg Toss - For the more adventurous, how about an organized game of Easter egg toss? Make it more challenging by leaving extra space between participants situated in a large room or big backyard (just make sure the eggs are hard-boiled!)
