Easter games are a must, but Easter games that don’t require nothing else but the million Easter eggs that will be lying all over your living room floor is even better. That’s right… Easter egg games!
So, your kids had a blast at the Easter egg hunt. They had enough candy and Easter treats to feed and army.

Well, no worries mama… I’ve got you.

Before we start a few things to note:
- It is more fun when all 7 games are played with more than one child. However, all 7 games can all be played individually as well. All you must do is use a timer on the games that are based on competition (games 1-3).
- Some games require a few extra materials, but I promise you it won’t be anything that you don’t already have lying around the house.
- All 7 games are also super fun to play amongst adults.
- If you want to take it a step further, you can give the winner of each game a small price.
- And yes… all the game names are original to this article (so don’t mind the cheesiness… lol)
Oh and… if your haven’t gotten your Easter shopping essentials, don’t worry.
Motherhood barely leaves us enough time to shower, let alone go Easter shopping.
So, just in case, before we go over some games, here are my Easter Amazon pick egg game essentials in case you want to grab them now and have them arrive at your door:
EASTER EGG GAME #1: AN EGG AND A SPOON
This Easter game is super fun! Not just for kids, but for the whole family. Want a great laugh? Enlist grandma and grandpa to be part of the kid’s teams. Priceless.
- Easter eggs
- Plastic spoons
The original games which is usually played amongst adults is played with real eggs. But for the purpose of this article and your sanity, we will stick to plastic Easter eggs.
- Assemble 2 teams of one child or more.
- Place them side by side and give each of them a plastic Easter egg and a spoon.
- Instruct the first child of each team to put their egg on the spoon and wait for your signal.
- At your “go”, they will race to a designated area and back without dropping the egg.
- If the egg falls, they must go back to the beginning and start over.
- When the first played returns to the start, it will be the next player’s turn to do the same.
- Which ever team completes their turns successfully first, wins.
Notes: To add different degrees of difficulty, you can make the players spin around a few times before they set out on their race. You can also have then hold the spoon with their mouths instead of their hands.
EASTER EGG GAME #2: EGG PILE COLOR CHALLENGE
This one is one of my kids’ favorite Easter egg games. It will probably be one of yours also since it is very easy to put together.
- Easter eggs
- Before you start ensure you have the same amount of colored eggs per child (for instance, 10 blue eggs for player 1, 10 green eggs for player 2, and 10 yellow eggs for player 3).
- Then, in an open area, place all the eggs in a big pile. Then, mix all the colors thoroughly.
- Place all the kids at about 30 steps from the egg pile.
- At your “go” they must run to the middle and grab their colored eggs ( 2 eggs at a time) and bring them back to their starting line.
- Whoever manages to collect all their colored eggs first, wins.
Notes: If you are playing this game with older kids or adults you can add one more thing to make it interesting. Players might be given the option to take other people’s eggs back to the starting point. The person whose eggs were stolen must collect all their eggs back before they can win.
EASTER EGG GAME #3: HUMPY DUMPY CHALLENGE
Much like Humpty Dumpty, most of the Easter eggs will suffer the same fate.
So, it will be up to your kiddos to put the eggs back together again.
Another super simple game that the kids love!
- Easter eggs
- Just like the previous game, ensure you have the same amount of colored eggs per child (for instance, 10 blue eggs for player one, 10 green eggs for player 2, and 10 yellow eggs for player 3).
- Open the eggs in half and place all the eggs in a big pile. Then, mix all the colors thoroughly.
- At you “go” all kids must put together all their colored eggs accordingly.
- Whoever puts all their eggs together again first, win!
EASTER EGG GAME #4: MAKE IT RAIN
Oh, this game is so fun. But, you might to want to take this one outside.
This game works best for 2 kids at a time.
- Easter eggs
- Paper confetti (you can make it yourself with construction paper and scissors)
- Egg cartoon (optional)
- Select a dozen eggs and put them in an egg carton.
- Out of those 12, place paper confetti on 5 of those eggs.
- Mix them well.
- Each child will take turns picking an egg from the cartoon. Then they will crack it open on the other child’s head.
- If the egg is empty, no one scores. If the paper confetti comes raining down, the one who cracked the egg gets the point. In other words, avoid getting rained on.
EASTER EGG GAME #5: EASTER EGG BASKETBALL
Easter egg basketball is exactly what it sounds like.
It is a very simple and fun game that can be played all year round.
- Easter Eggs
- Anything that looks like a basket (a bucket, a basket, a box, etc.)
- Give each child a specific amount of Easter eggs (10-20 is a good amount).
- Put the basket at a considerable distance from the kids (about 6ft, depending on the kids age).
- Then, they will then take turns shooting their eggs to the basket consecutively.
- The child who makes the most eggs in the basket wins.
EASTER EGG GAME #6: SHUFFLE UP
This game is more like a mini magic trick and requires your participation. Older children can also help.
- 3 larger Easter eggs in halves
- Place 3 egg halves facing down
- You will then place a small object under one of the eggs as the kids are watching.
- Then, you will shuffle all eggs as fast as you can.
- Each child will take turn guessing where the object is placed under.
- Whichever child gets the most guesses correctly, wins.
EASTER EGG GAME #7: DO OVER
Last, but not least, is the all famous Easter Egg Hunt do-over.
I don’t know about your kids, but my kids LOVE to do egg hunts.
Yes… all year round. They don’t even care that the eggs are empty, it is simply the thrill of finding the eggs that makes them happy.
So, when it all fails, gather all the empty eggs, tell them to look away (or to wait in another room of the house) and hide all the eggs once again.
You can do it indoors or outdoors, but the point is that they set out on another Easter Egg Hunt quest.
Whoever collects the most eggs wins.
Easter is one of our favorite holidays.
The resurrection of Jesus, the Easter breakfast, Church, family and friends, yummy treats and the all awaited Easter Egg Hunt.
But the truth is, that once the egg hunt is over, and chaos unfold, keeping them entertained and occupied becomes priority.
Thankfully, now you have plenty of Easter egg game ideas that don’t require much effort or fancy gear to put together.
Plus, you are creating everlasting traditions and memories that they will hopefully pass down to their own children.
So, there you have it mama, enjoy! Happy Easter.😊
