Looking for some socially-distanced games to play for Easter this year? Here are 5 egg-cellent Easter games that are egg-stremely fun! (And find even more Easter 2021 resources here!)
1. HOT BOILED EGG
Supplies: Hard-boiled egg, spoons and/or gloves, music
Details: This game is just like hot potato, but with an eggy twist! Children can either sit or stand in a circle. When the music starts, the children pass the “hot boiled egg” around the circle using spoons and/or wearing gloves. When the music stops, the person left holding the egg is out. Play continues until only one person is left, and that person is the winner!
Supplies: 3 Hard-boiled and 3 uncooked eggs, egg box, Dice (optional: trash bags and shower caps)
Details: Invite 6 leaders to the front and give them all a number. (You may want to provide trash bags and shower caps for the leaders to wear over their heads and shirts. And, if you don’t have 6 leaders, you can do this with yourself or with just one other leader.) Roll a dice and whichever number the dice lands on, that number leader has to pick an egg and crack it over their head. Keep playing until there is one player left.
3. EGG BOCCE BALL
Supplies: Colorful hard-boiled eggs (or colorful plastic eggs), plain white hard-boiled egg
Details: Each player uses a colorful hard-boiled egg (or a colorful plastic egg). A plain white hard-boiled egg is used as the target. Players compete to see who can roll their egg closest to the white egg without touching the white egg and without cracking their colorful egg. The person who gets the closest without touching wins OR play multiple rounds and the first person to win a certain number of rounds will win the game. (The eggs could be replaced with chocolate eggs and a chocolate bunny as the target.)
4. EGGY TOWER TUMBLE
Supplies: Toilet paper rolls and eggs (hardboiled, chocolate, or fresh – if you’re feeling brave!)
Details: Invite 2-3 children up front to play this game. Children have to build the tallest tower, first using a toilet paper roll, then the egg, then the roll, the egg etc. Set a time limit for 1 minute to see who can build the tallest tower in that time.
Supplies: Bowl of whipped cream, 10 chocolate/candy Easter eggs (or jelly beans) that are hidden in the cream, wipes/towels for clean up
Details: Choose 2-3 children to come up on stage. Give each child a bowl with whipped cream and chocolate eggs/jelly beans hidden in the cream. Kids must fish the eggs out of the cream as quickly as possible. You can choose whether they do this with their fingers, toes, or face – depending on the level of mess that you want!
