Easter Games To Play

Egg rolling

Easter egg rolling is one of the oldest traditional games ... and is great fun to play.

You'll need: one hard boiled egg per child (plain or decorated), something to mark the start and finish with.

How it works: Mark out a start and a finish point ... it will depend on the age of the children as to how far apart you make these. Younger children will get frustrated if they have to roll the egg too far.

Line the children up on their hands and knees and get them to roll the egg from start to finish using only their noses. The winner is the one to reach the end without touching the egg with their hands. This works equally well indoors or out.

 

Pin the tail on the Easter Bunnyeaster bunny

You'll need: a large picture of an Easter bunny (you can print off the image to the right by clicking here), cotton wool balls with a small piece of sticky tape  for sticking, blindfold.

How it works:

Blindfold the first child. Spin them round two or three times, face them in the right direction and let them try and stick the fluffy tail on the Easter bunny. Wherever the child sticks the tail, write their name. You can either remove the tail for the next child's turn or you can have enough cotton wool balls for each child and just write his or her name next to the tail and leave it up until everyone has had a turn. The child who puts the tail nearest the right spot wins.
