Great Easter Games for Kids Parties

As a girl scout leader for many years and a homeroom parent for both of my children I have planned many Easter Parties.  You will find some great Easter games for kids Easter parties as well as links for recipes, websites and creative basket ideas.

Easter Recipes

 EASTER GAMES FOR KIDS
 Cookie Decorating

Make a bunny-shaped cookie ahead of time for each child.

Prepare colorful pastel frostings (blue, yellow, purple and white.

Get pastel sprinkles

Purchase non-chocolate Easter candy 

Let the fun begin

 Easter Penny Pitch

Use several cutout paper or cardboard bunnies/chicks.
 

Place the cutouts a couple feet away.


Give each player ten pennies.
 

Every time a penny goes onto the cutout, a piece of candy is won.

Donut Bite

Wrap an old mop handle up in blue and yellow crepe paper with matching ribbon.

Purchase enough donuts for each child.

Loop ribbon through the donut hole.  Tie the other end of the ribbon to the decorated mop handle.  Hold mop so that children have to kneel to reach the donut.  The object is to see who can grab the donut with their teeth -- without hands!  For older kids you may want to cover their eyes with a bandana.  Hang a new donut for each player. If you want you can time each player to see how long it takes. Shortest time wins.

Bunny Hop Game

Divide the kids into two groups and put them in a straight line.

Give each team a small stuffed Easter bunny.

Have the first person in each line place the bunny between their legs and hop to the other end of the room and back.

They give the bunny to the next child in line and the process repeats until everyone has had a turn.  The first team to finish wins.

Easter Charades

Items Needed:

Easter Basket

Slips of paper containing names of Easter objects such as bunny, basket, candy, chick, carrot, Easter egg, egg hunt

Timer

Game Rules:

Put the paper into the Easter basket

Divide children in two teams.

Team A selects from the basket and attempts to get his/her team to guess the word by acting it out without talking. If they guess before the timer goes off they score a point.  If they don't then the other team gets a chance to guess to win a bonus point in HALF the time. 

The play then goes to team B and a child selects from the basket and the play continues

In the end, the team with the most point wins.

Note: this can be played in pairs if the kids are more comfortable.

 Crazy Relay

Cut out an Easter eggs for each child and an extra one if you have an odd number of kids.

Write a different instruction on each egg such as hop, walk backwards, take giant steps, take baby steps.  Make two of each instruction so that you have one for each team.

Divide the kids into 2 groups and put them in line.

Put the eggs in two baskets at the other end of the room.

On your command the first person in line should run up to the basket, take an egg and follow the instructions to get back to his team.  Play goes to the next person and the game continues. The first team done wins

Balloon Bust

Divide the group into two teams.  Blow up pastel color balloons and tie one to everyone's ankles. Say "go" and watch the teams trying to burst the other team's balloons first. The team with the last balloon wins. As your balloon is burst you withdraw from the game.

 Easter Air Balloons

Keep the balloons floating in the air while thinking and saying words from a chosen category. 

To begin get everyone into a circle and start the balloon going around from player to player keeping the balloon in the air at all times. The catch however is before he can bat the balloon each player must call out a word (no repetitions, please) to fit an agreed upon theme.  Maybe the theme is the color of Easter eggs!

Create Your Own Trail Mix


Start with cutting out footprints  from construction paper. Be sure to use colors that fit with your theme. Label each footprint numerically.
 

Select goodie items like raisins, M&M's, Cheerios or Chex cereal, chocolate chips, bite size pretzels, and anything else that you think the kids would like.

Set each item out in a separate bowl. Strategically place the bowls around the room. Place the footprints in numeric order to guide the kids from one bowl to the next.
 

Give each child a plastic spoon and a Ziploc bag. Have them follow the footprint "trail" to make their own trail mix. Remind them only one spoonful per bowl goes into their bag.

 

Creating Baskets for the Easter Egg Hunt

Start early and collect pint size strawberry baskets for each child.
Pipe clearers

Inexpensive pastel ribbon or construction paper cut in strips.

Let the kids weave the ribbon or construction paper through the holes in the basket to decorate. 

Use pipe cleaners to form a handle and attach to opposite sides of basket.

Fill with Easter grass to cover the bottom of basket.

or

Purchase inexpensive beach buckets.  Have the kids decorate them and put inside grass to cover the bottom.

Candy Ring

Drop a plastic table cloth on the floor (preferably Easter color or pattern).  Cover it with Easter candy and  trinkets such as stickers, pencils etc.   Have the children stand a distance from the table cloth and toss one or two rings.  Whatever their ring encompasses they get to keep.  Be sure to have goodie bags available.  This game has always been a great hit with the kids.

Easter Face Paint

1 tsp. cornstarch
1/2 tsp. water
1/2 tsp. cold cream
2 drops food coloring

In a small mixing bowl, combine all ingredients, mix well. Draw a bunny nose and whiskers on everyone.

 Bunny Hop Sack Race

 Pull our the old pillow cases or sacks and start the relay.  and start the relay.

 Easter Relay


1 Ping pong ball for each team (painted with a pastel color)
1 spoon for each team

Divide children into teams. Give the first child on each team a spoon and a ping pong ball. Set up the course to where they have to carry the "Egg" on the spoon to the end of the course and come back. Hand off to the next child and continue until all children have played on the team. First team done wins.
