7 Family Easter Games
Egg & spoon race: Grab some fresh eggs (or stick with hard boiled if you are more mess-averse) and soup spoons for a traditional egg and spoon dash across the yard. Form relay teams to get the family really working together.
Blindfold!: An egg and spoon race for teams of two, blindfold the spoon holder and have their partner guide them to the finish line with verbal clues called from the sideline.
Obstacle course: Add an extra element of challenge to your egg and spoon race with an obstacle course! Team members need to weave in and out of the pot plants, step over the broom and balance along the hose, all the while keeping their egg carefully balanced on the spoon.
Bunny hop: Divide into two teams and have one person from each team place a cushion between their legs. The aim is to hop (or jump) to a marker and then back to the start line where the cushion is passed to the next member of the team. Continue relay style until everyone has had a turn. The first team to finish are the winners!
Egg roll: Set a brightly coloured egg (or another marker) in the middle of the lawn and have each family member stand one to two metres away from it. Take it in turns to each roll an egg toward the marker with the aim of being the one whose egg stops closest to the marker
Egg catch: This one is guaranteed to result in squealing and laughter and could get more than a little messy! Divide the family into pairs and line up with team members facing each other, approximately 1 metre apart. Provide each team with a fresh egg. Team members throw their egg back and forth to each other, trying not to drop or smash it. For each successful catch, the team member takes a step backwards. The team whose egg lasts the longest is the winner.
Fill plastic eggs with folded notes containing Easter related words to be acted out. Each person takes a turn by choosing an egg and then pantomiming the word or phrase on the paper he’s chosen to the other players – no speaking allowed! The person who guesses the correct answer gets to keep the egg and take the next turn. The winner is the person with the most eggs at the end of the game.
