Easter Activities for the Family
Easter Games and Activities that will Make the Whole Family Smile
One of my family’s favorite Easter traditions is our big Easter Eggstravaganza. Part of that includes a bunch of super silly Minute To Win It style games with an Easter Bunny seal of approval. This will have your whole crew giggling ensuring tons of fun Easter memories being made. Here are a few of our favorite Easter games for families.
Silly Games for the Family
Jelly Bean Races
Use a child spoon to pick up a jelly bean. Race to the end of the yard and place your jelly bean in a jar.
If you drop your jelly bean, you have to go back to the beginning and start over.
At the end of a minute the person with the most jelly beans in their jar wins.
Make it harder for grown ups by having them hold the spoon in their mouth.
Easter Egg Golf
Time to put your putting skills to the test.
Create a simple “golf course” by laying down a cup.
Place a plastic egg on the ground and use a golf club or a stick to hit it into the cup.
To make your course a little more challenging, use a pool noodle or blocks to create ramps, tunnels, and other obstacles.
Easter Egg Corn Hole
If you have a corn hole set up, you already have everything you need.
Grab some of those Easter egg and start tossing them instead of your bean bags.
Corn hole is such a crowd pleasing game it just makes sense to include it in our Easter party games list.
It is an activity that does require some skill, but at the same time anyone in the family can join in and have fun. If college kids can be successful with it at a tailgate after a few drinks, you, your pre-teen, and your toddler can have fun with it and be successful too.
Use the toys in your backyard to create an obstacle course for the kids.
Get creative with what you have:
- A wooden board can be a balance beam
- Buckets can be obstacles you zig zag through
- Lawn chairs can be tunnels you crawl under
To make this more on theme as an Easter game for the family, surprise your kids with bunny ears to wear as they play! Even better get a pair for the whole family (dad too) and make sure to take photos with your ears on
Gather your water bottles, empty creamer bottles, or toilet paper rolls.
You will need 10 to create bowling pins.
Make the pins look like bunnies by drawing a face and whiskers and glueing on some paper ears.
Set the bunnies up like bowling pins and roll a ball towards to start bowling.
Stick a Tail on the Bunny
On a piece of large butcher paper draw a bunny from the back.
Cut circles out of construction paper and glue cotton balls to it to serve as a tail.
Add tape to the bunny tail.
Blind fold your kids one at a time and have them stick their bunny tails on the bunny the best they can.
Of course the classic Easter activites for the family like dying eggs and going on an eggs round out our Easter party. But it is always extra fun to add a few twists.
