Easter is a special time when families get together for a great meal and shared time.When the that get together includes children, it is a good idea to organize some fun and games –  some activites that you can consider planning will add to that shared time and create special memories for all. Here are few for you to help you with your planning:

How Many Eggs?


  • Large glass jar filled with chocolate eggs
  • Small pieces of paper
  • Easter basket
  • Pencil

How To Play:

Have children write their name on a small piece of paper and their guess as to how many chocolate eggs are in the jar. The child who guesses the right number or comes closest takes the jar of candy home to share with their family.

Beautiful Bunny


  • A cut out bunny for each child
  • Scissors
  • Markers
  • Cotton balls (for tail)

How To Play:

Everyone makes their own version of the Easter Bunny. Hang them up for decoration and if you wish have a Beauty Contest. Recognize the most creative, prettiest, funniest, etc.

Broken Egg Riddles



  • Large eggs cut in two
  • Riddle written on the first half of the egg
  • Answer written on the second half of the egg

How To Play:

 Children go around and ask the riddle and the second child will give the answer. If the answers are correct, the two children who are matched up then sit down. Game is over when all children have matched up the riddle to the answer.

Hope you have fun planning and playing these games – please send in your comments, suggestions and experiences, your input is always welcomed and very much appreciated
