Easter games are a great way of getting kids and adults alike involved in all the Easter fun. From Easter egg hunts and Easter egg boules
Easter is the perfect time to get together with family and friends for all sorts of fun!
Whether you’re planning a big Easter egg hunt party, having the family over for an Easter lunch, or just looking for something to entertain the kids with, we have lots of ideas for Easter games that are guaranteed to keep the kids occupied for hours on end (a god send when there’s a roast dinner to prepare and you need them out of the kitchen for a bit!). And grown ups will love these ideas too!
Easter games are a great way to get kids involved in the fun of the Easter holidays, and some of these ideas may start a family tradition for games you play every year – even when they’re grown up! From Easter egg hunts and Easter cookie decorating, to Easter egg boules and ‘musical eggs’ (yes, it’s as fun as it sounds!) you’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to planning some Easter games.
These Easter games are appropriate for all ages, and can be tailored depending on how many kids are joining in the fun. If you’re having lots family anf friends over, why not hand out score cards when they arrive as a nice touch – everyone will love letting their competitive streak show and comparing scores at the end over an Easter egg (or two) will be the highlight of the day.
The best thing about these Easter games? They’re all budget friendly! In fact some of these Easter games require absolutely no money spent whatsoever – which is music to our Easter bunny ears!

This is a really fun game for kids and adults to play together! And all you need is some eggs, and some paint. Simple!
off, colour some hard-boiled eggs in any colours you like (you could
use food dye for this) and make sure that one egg is white. If you feel
like adding patterns, go for it!
To play, roll the white egg into
the middle of the room and then each person takes two eggs and tries to
roll them as near to the marker egg as possible. If you don’t have time
to colour eggs, you could use different-coloured chocolate eggs.
This is exactly the same as the old classic ‘Simon Says’ but this time
it will be the Easter bunny giving orders. So, it could go something
like this: ‘Easter bunny says make mummy a cup of tea.’ Try not to be
too mean to the kids though!
It can be a fun twist to let the
kids take it in turns to be the Easter bunny giving orders, and they can
even have a go at wearing the Easter bunny mask when they do! Simply
follow our Easter rabbit mask how to.
Another classic game that kids and adults will love.
Fill a large
vase or jar with chocolate eggs and get the children to write their
name on a piece of paper along with how many eggs they think are in the
container. The one with the nearest guess wins the contents of the jar!
Although perhaps encourage them to share their winnings…
If you find yourself stuck inside with the kids this Easter, a great way
to pass the time is to make and decorate some Easter biscuits. You can
even gift wrap some of them to give to friends and family as cute Easter
Decorating Easter biscuits also makes a great game for the kids to play – why not set them challenges of who can design the best one, or give them a theme to follow, like Easter animals?
Before you start decorating eggs, you must remember to hard boil them so
that they don’t shatter all over the place. You can buy an
egg-decorating kit which will include everything you need, or, for a
cheaper option, try mixing vinegar and food colouring.
You can’t beat a classic egg and spoon race. If the weather’s nice this Easter, a great way to get the kids active is to have an egg and spoon race competiton. Be sure to stock up with lots and lots of eggs as there’s sure to be more than a few breakages!
And don’t forget the adults can get involved too – why not have a separate race for the kids and then one for the grown ups? The little ones will love cheering you on!
This is a variation of the old classic musical chairs. Stick some pretty
pictures of eggs on the floor or you could stick them to chairs. Play
music and get the kids to dance around the room, when the music stops
they must stand or sit on an egg.
Each time remove one of the eggs, so
there is always one less egg than there are people. You might even want
to indulge your inner child and join in with this game!
Divide the kids into teams and get them to hop a certain distance with a plastic, stuffed or toy egg between their legs. This is a great way to use up some of their sugar-induced energy after they’ve had one too many chocolate Easter treats!
This is such a fun game to play for kids and adults alike! The idea is that you find a large plastic egg, and then ask everyone to form a circle. The egg needs to make its way around the circle back to the start in a set amount of time (depending on how many people take part), and the person who has the egg when the time runs out is out of the game!
The catch? The egg has to be passed around without using your hands, so whether you tuck it under your chin, between your knees or in any other way is up to you!
