Easter Games

Egg Money Hunt: paint hard-boiled eggs so they look like money. Green egg draw Dollar signs $$ all over it, Purple put cents sign all over it and then you could do a “Lucky Egg” for the grand prize. Lucky Egg has to be the biggest egg of all! We always put a $1.00 in it.

Draw or trace a rabbit on poster board and then get the triple size cotton balls and the kids can play pin or tape the tail on the Easter bunny.

Easter Bunny, Easter Bunny, Where’s Your Egg?

Make a colorful Easter egg shape and covered it with contact paper. Then play “Easter Bunny, Easter Bunny, where’s your egg?” It’s played like the familiar game “Doggie, Doggie where’s your bone?” The group sits in a circle and one child sits in the middle as the “bunny”. The bunny hides their eyes as one person is chosen to sit on the egg picture. Then the group yells out “Easter bunny, Easter bunny, where’s your egg? Somebody stole it from your home!” The Easter bunny then has three guesses to find the child who is sitting on it. That child then becomes the new bunny in the middle.

Spoon Balance

Have all of the children sit down and make a circle. Choose two children to participate in this activity at a time.

Give the child a spoon with a large marshmallow on it. Tell the children that they need to walk to The designated spot without dropping the marshmallow! This takes great patients!

Bunny Hopping Fun

This game is just like duck, duck goose, with 2 changes. 1. Obviously, the words change to “bunny” as you tap each child, and “hop” when one child is selected. 2. Instead of running around the circle, players hop with their feet together. Have some hopping fun!
