If you’re planning an Easter party for kids or looking for fun things to do during the Easter holidays then our 12 Egg-citing Easter Games might be just what you’re looking for:
#1. Play Bunny, Bunny, RABBIT!
If your kids have plenty of energy to burn, this is the game for them! As you’ve probably guessed, this is an Easter variation on the classic duck, duck, GOOSE game. Here’s how to play:
- Sit the kids down in a circle;
- Select one child to be “it”;
- The “it” child walks around the outside of the circle patting each player on the head and saying “bunny” until they want to say “RABBIT”;
- Both the “it” child and the RABBIT must hop around the circle trying to reach the vacant spot;
- Whoever doesn’t make it to the spot in time is then “it”.
Fill a jar with mini easter eggs and have each child guess how many eggs are in the jar to win a prize.
(Then divide up the spoils between them all!)

#4. Egg Bowling
Egg Bowling can be played either outdoors or indoors. Each player has a coloured boiled egg and a plain white boiled egg is used for the target. Everyone sees who can roll their egg closest to the white egg without touching it.
You can play e.g. 5 or 10 rounds as well to get to a winner.

#5. Hot Boiled Egg
This game is a variation of Pass the Parcel or Hot Potato. You’ll need a plastic egg taped shut with something in it to pass around.
When the music starts, the players pass the “hot boiled egg” around the circle. When the music stops, the person left holding the egg is out. Play continues until only one person is left, and that person is the winner.
#6. Play Bunny Tag
Kids get a ton of exercise when they play bunny tag. Pick one child to be the dog chasing the other kids, who are the bunnies. The bunnies hop away from the fast-walking dog.
If they are caught, they crouch down and use their arms to make bunny ears atop their head until the game is finished. The last bunny caught becomes the dog during the next round.
