Easter Games

The Easter holiday typically brings families together for church service, large potluck meals and Easter egg hunts. This year, you can add to the Easter tradition by incorporating Easter games that are fit for kids, teens and adults alike. Here are some games that are simple to create and fun for the whole family. 

  1. Big Bunny Foot Game
    This game combines the Easter Bunny’s big feet and a Minute to Win It inspired game. You can design the big feet to look just like the Easter Bunny’s feet and add plastic Easter eggs instead of balls.

    In this game, players will put on sandals that are attached to the large feet. The goal is to carry as many Easter eggs safely to the finish line. It can be played as a relay so more people can join in the fun. Be sure to incorporate a fun prize for the winner so the competition really gets fierce.

    This game is perfect to play indoors or outside. It can be played in with a small or large group. It will definitely be fun with plenty of opportunities for photo ops.
    Supplies:
  • A Big Box 
  • Sandals
  • Tape
  • Scissors
  • Hot Glue Gun
  • Glue
  • Black Marker
  • Plastic Easter Eggs
  1. Peeps Game
    A popular Easter treat is the famous Peeps. So it is fitting that an Easter game is designed around this popular snack. This marshmallowy candy is perfect for this simple, yet exciting game. Simply put a shower cap on the participant and load it up with shaving cream. The other participant will stand 3-5 feet away and toss the Peeps onto the shower cap. The winner is the one who gets the most to stick to the cap. 

This game is so simple, it just requires three things.
Supplies:

  • Shower Cap
  • Shaving Cream
  • Peeps: feel free to load up on a variety of shapes and colors for added fun.
  1. Nerf Gun Easter Egg Hunt

Are you ready to take your Easter egg hunt to the next level? The kids will be super excited to try out the Nerf Gun Easter Egg Hunt. It’s time to get the kids off their tablets and outside to enjoy fresh air and a fresh way to collect those Easter eggs. The best part for parents is that you can get very creative with the targets and add new designs each year.

This game is set up by simply using empty paper towel tubes and toilet paper rolls as stands for the targets (eggs). You can design your own rules. It is best to give each participant a certain amount of ammo to score their special treats with. 

Supplies:

  • Nerf Gun
  • Nerf Ammo
  • Empty Paper Towel Rolls
  • Empty Toilet Paper Rolls
  • Easter Eggs
  1. Easter Egg Tag Game
    It could also be called a human pinata, but maybe not as violent, the Easter Egg Tag Game is a surefire win for any group of kids looking to have some fun and earn some candy. The person who is “it” will wear a t-shirt with candies and goodies attached to it. You can even designate a special golden egg. The kids can then chase around the kid with the shirt on to grab some treats. 

Supplies:

  • T-Shirt
  • Hot Glue Gun/Glue
  • Easter Eggs
  • Delicious Candy
  1. Egg Toss Game
    Perhaps a more traditional game, but fun nonetheless, the Egg toss game has to be on your list of fun Easter games this year. Make sure the kids wear something they don’t mind getting messy (in other words, change out of your Sunday best). Partners line up facing each other and begin by tossing an egg back and forth. If neither partner drops or cracks the egg, they can take a step back from each other and try again. The pair that is farthest apart without breaking the egg wins. 

Supplies:

  • Eggs
  1. Pin the Tail on the Bunny
    Another take on a classic game, change up a donkey for a game of pin the tail on the bunny. It is obviously played just like pin the tail on the donkey, but a cute bunny butt will be needed instead. The best part is that there are plenty of free printables to download or you can draw your own Easter bunny. 

Bottom Line

This Easter, incorporating new or classic DIY games will bring a whole new feeling to the holiday. Most games are rather simple to assemble and fun for nearly any age group. Make this Easter a little more memorable with these fun Easter games.
