Beyond An Egg Hunt: 8 Fun Easter Games For Kids

While the thrill of searching for hidden chocolate treasures remains a timeless tradition every Easter, injecting some fresh and exciting games into the mix is never a bad idea. Especially when it’s one of the most sugar-filled days of the year, and you never know when you might need a little activity or game to burn off all that excess energy.

So make sure that you’re prepared; we’ve pulled together some of our favourite Easter Games for kids. We’ve got a veritable feast of indoor and outdoor games that you can quickly pull together and keep the little ones entertained. So much so that by the end of the day, your house will look like the Easter Bunny's holiday home.



Our Favourite Easter Games For Kids


1. Pin The Tail On The Bunny (Better Homes & Gardens)


Pin The Tail On The Bunny is a clever alternative to the classic ‘Pin The Tail On The Donkey’ that promises laughter and fun for Easter festivities. All you’ll need for this Easter game is a bunny poster, a blindfold,  a few stickers and a fluffy tail. Kids take turns being blindfolded, spun around, and attempt to pin the fluffy tail onto the bunny. The giggles are infectious as they misplace the tail and get themselves into all sorts of mishaps, making it a really fun, family-friendly activity.

2. Egg Bowling (Better Homes & Gardens)


Egg Bowling is the mashup you never knew you needed. It’s basically like a version of Crown Green Bowls, played in your living room with some painted eggs. You take a white egg and place it a little bit away from yourselves. Then you take your painted eggs and try to roll them next to it; the person with the closest egg wins. You can probably already see from that description how super easy it is to set up this Easter game and how fun and competitive it will be. Just don’t let any sibling rivalry get out of hand.

3. Easter Charades (


Easter Charades is another twist on a classic game with a whole new level of creativity and laughter. Armed with a basket of Easter-themed clues the little ones will be ready to act their little hearts out. The fun really kicks in as everyone plays detective, trying to guess which Easter-related things they are trying to act out. The guessing becomes a whirlwind of giggles and "aha" moments as each performance unfolds. So, when you're planning your day, don't forget to throw in some Easter Charades. 

4. Bunny Sack Race (


If you’re looking to burn a little bit of that chocolate off and want to stretch your legs, then hosting a bunny sack race is the perfect option. As you and your little ones take a tumble or two towards the finish line, there will be plenty of laughter, the odd look of steely determination and lots of cries to race again. 

5. Egg Roulette


Brace yourself for the egg-stra messy Easter game - Egg Roulette. Now, we're not talking about your average, run-of-the-mill pick an Easter egg out of a sack and keep it situation. No, we’re talking about pick an egg; hope it’s hard-boiled and doesn’t unleash some yolky chaos situation. All you need to do for this game is take a pack of six eggs, boil five of them and leave one untouched. Then, preferably in the garden, take turns cracking them and see who is left with egg on their face. It’s not the most sophisticated of easy Easter games, but it’s definitely one of the funniest.

6. Egg and Spoon Race

The Egg and Spoon Race is a timeless Easter classic that combines balance and coordination with a bit of playful competition. Competitors participate in a race, carefully balancing an egg on a spoon, aiming to reach the finish line without any mishaps. This delightful challenge not only showcases everyone's egg-balancing skills but also adds an element of suspense and friendly rivalry to the day. The Egg and Spoon Race is a fantastic way to get everyone involved with races for kids and adults.

7. Easter Bingo (


Sometimes, you just need something that is going to work for the whole family. Easter Bingo is that game. It doesn’t require any running, it’s fun, and, most importantly, there is very little mess that you need to clean up afterwards. To play Easter Bingo, all you need is to create your own bingo cards for each person at the table. The cards can be numbers, or if you want to go the extra mile, they can be Easter-themed symbols like chicks. Then all you need to do is have a tombola or even a cup with the different numbers/symbols on a piece of paper that you can draw from and call out until someone completes their card. Simple right?

8. Easter Bonnet Competition 


Unleash your creativity with an Easter Bonnet Competition that combines crafting with a mini-fashion show where your little divas can have their moment in the spotlight. This can be something your guests bring to the party, or it can be done as an activity on the day.  All you’ll need is bonnets, ribbons, and flowers, and let the kids' imaginations run wild as they decorate their masterpieces. The highlight is a parade where the kids showcase their unique and stylish Easter bonnets. This delightful activity not only encourages artistic expression but also adds a touch of glamour and fun to the Easter celebration. The Easter Bonnet Competition is a perfect way to celebrate individuality, creativity, and the joy of crafting, making it a standout activity for any Easter party for kids.
