Yes, the annual Easter egg hunt is the main event, but you will want to make sure you have plenty of other activities to keep the kids busy after all of the eggs are found. Easter is a great time for backyard games but don’t worry, all of these games can be played inside in case of rain.
Egg Stacking Competition
No, we aren’t talking about real eggs, thank goodness! After the egg hunt is over, don’t throw away those plastic eggs! You can use them for a competitive stacking competition that the whole family can participate in!
Let the kids pretend they are the Easter bunny by having a potato sack race! You can have the kids wear bunny ears to make it more exciting!
Egg and Spoon Race
This classic idea is sure to have the kids burning off some much needed energy! Place wooden eggs in spoons and then see who can make it to the finish line first!
Jelly Bean Contest
For this activity give each kid a spoon and tell them to hold it in their mouth and transfer jelly beans from a large bowl containing jelly beans to a small cup. The first child to fill their cup wins!
Pin the Tail on the Bunny!
This classic game is sure to egg-cite the kids in your family! Place a bunny poster on a wall and let each child have a turn placing a tail on the bunny while blindfolded! The child who is closest to the where the actual tail is on the bunny wins and gets a prize!
