Easter games for kids

Egg and spoon race

Kids will love this easy, fun race that can be played indoors or outdoors.  All you need is a spoon and egg for each person who is playing. Each child balances their egg on their spoon and runs as fast as they can to the finish line. The first one to make it without dropping their egg wins. To avoid any mess (especially if you're playing indoors) hard boil the eggs and leave them to cool before the race begins. 

Bunny hop race

Add cotton wool bunny tails to a sack or pillowcase for this bunny hop race. As in a normal sack race, children put both feet in their sack or pillowcase and hold it up around their waist, bunny-hopping to the finish line. The winning bunny gets a carrot!

Pin the tail on the bunny

Draw or print out a picture of a bunny on a piece of paper A3 size or larger. Cut out a bunny tail shape (you can cover this with cotton wool or tissue paper if you like). Then stick some Blu-tack on the back of your bunny tail, pop a blindfold over the first player's eyes, and see how close they manage to get to where the bunny's tail should be.
