Easter is a time to celebrate rebirth and new beginnings. If you’re like most people in this country, you might be attending an Easter celebration, or hosting one yourself. Before you beginning planning your event, get a good idea of the number of people you’ll be having over, and how many of them will be children. Once you know this you can start arranging your fun activities for the kids. Use these four ideas.
1. Egg & Spoon Race
Take your friends and family outdoors for a little activity! You will need one egg and spoon per contestant. Hard boiled eggs work best, but use raw eggs if you really want a challenge. (Raw eggs may break when they fall, disqualifying the participant, and their liquid interior makes them rock back and forth harder.) Set up a start and finish line. Everyone must race to the finish with their egg on their spoon. If it drops and doesn’t break, you can pick it up but it must go right back on the spoon.
2. Easter Egg Hunt
Every Easter celebration needs an egg hunt! Place coins, candy, or other treats inside plastic eggs. Hide the eggs throughout your house. Extend the hunt outdoors if the weather is nice. Make sure you remember where you hid all the eggs in case your hunters can’t find them. You can award prizes for the person who finds the most, or skip the competition and make hunting the fun.
3. Decorate the Treats
Typically you’ll have all your Easter treats decorated before your party, but it’s actually the perfect party activity. Set up decorating stations with eggs and cookies in fun shapes, like bunnies and chickens. Set out all the important decorating materials: dyes, frosting, sprinkles, candies, and colored sugar. When you’re finished, eat it all up!
4. Pin the Egg on the Bunny
This is a variation of the classic children’s birthday game Pin the Tail on the Donkey. Draw a large bunny on a sheet or piece of paper. Make it so the bunny’s hand is outstretched like he’s holding something. Tack this to the wall. Cut egg shapes out of colored paper relative to the size of the space in the bunny’s hand. Blindfold the participants, maybe give them a spin, and send them to the bunny. Whoever gets their egg closes to the bunny’s hand will win.
