Fun Easter Games for the Whole Family

Battle of the Peeps

Battle of the Peeps is an intense two-player Easter game that will enlist all the competitive ones. Each player gets a pack of Peeps marshmallows and lines them up on opposite ends of a table. With plastic easter eggs, each player tries to get all of the other player’s marshmallows off the table by rolling the egg to try and knock them down. The first one to get all the other player’s peeps off the table is the Easter winner! 

Freeze Dance

My kids love to bust out their favorite Easter songs like “The Bunny Hop”, Hot Cross Buns, or the latest happy song they’re into in this fun game of Freeze Dance. When the music stops, every player freezes. Anyone who moves or doesn’t freeze on time is out. The last one dancing wins!

Bunny Hokey Pokey

You can do the Bunny Hokey Pokey with your whole family on Easter! Grab a fun video, and you’re ready to dance! 

Bunny Bowling

Grab some wooden bowling pins from a craft store, paint them white, add cute faces and some felt bunny ears, and do some bunny bowling this Easter. Pair with a wool dryer ball or any small ball to roll and knock the pins down. Two-liter bottles can also be used for the bowling pins, but are best decorated with Easter season colors and images, as the bunny look is hard to create with the shape of the bottle.


Chickers is a fun Easter spin on a traditional game of Checkers. We enjoy creating the board as much as playing the game! You can create a simple checkers board from a poster board. You’ll want 8 boxes across and 8 boxes down that are each approximately 2 inches square. You’ll need 12 pieces for each of the two players, like these bunnies, chicks, or ducks.

Easter Scavenger Hunt

An Easter Scavenger hunt is always fun! Create some cute printable clues and hide them to lead players from one clue to the next and so on until they discover the hidden Easter treasure! My favorite treasure to find on Easter is a Reese’s egg!

You can also print this Easter Scavenger hunt and pair up in teams to find everything on the list! 

Egg Races

Grab some spoons and see who can carry their Easter egg to the finish line without breaking it. If you want to make it a little more tricky, have each player hold the handle of the spoon in their mouth.

Egg Hunt Relay

My kids are always up for a relay, that is why they love doing an egg hunt relay race! 

We have each team line up in a straight line. The first person in the line runs to find an Easter egg, then brings it back to their team. The next person then runs to find an egg and returns. This continues until each member has returned with an egg. 

We encourage lots of cheering for our teammates! The first team to either 1) have every team member find an egg or 2) find a certain number of eggs wins. 

Egg Toss

The egg toss is a fun Easter game for the kids to help with. I put a plastic tablecloth on the floor and let them fill the plastic eggs with flour. If your eggs have little holes in them at the bottom, you’ll want to place a piece of tape over the holes before filling them with flour. When it’s game time, have everyone pair up with a teammate. They’ll stand straight across from each other. The player with the egg tosses it to their teammate. If they catch it, they will take one step back. They will toss the egg back and forth, taking a step back when they catch it. The team that gets the most tosses without spilling the flour is the winner! 

Easter Egg Dash

In Easter Egg Dash, everyone who is playing gets an Easter basket except for one player, who will be the thrower. They will get a bucket full of plastic Easter eggs. The thrower will stand at one end of the yard or park they’re playing in, and those who are catching will stand 10-15 feet away. The thrower will pick a number (100, 200, 300, 400, or 500). They will toss the egg and shout out the number. Catchers will hold their basket with only one hand as they try to catch the eggs that are tossed. Whoever catches the egg gets the number of points the thrower called out when they tossed it. The first to get to 500 points becomes the new thrower. The thrower takes their basket and is now a catcher. We usually play for a set amount of time or until all the eggs have been caught.

Eggs-tra Hand

In Eggs-tra hans you will need to get into teams of two. Each team will receive a basket with 10 Easter eggs that are not hinged or connected in any way. Using only one hand, they will work together and race to match the tops and bottoms of the same colored eggs together. The first to finish getting all their eggs matched is the winner.


Memory is another fun Easter game for kids (and adults) of all ages. Put the same item in two eggs (chocolate egg, a quarter, etc) and place all the eggs on a table. Like memory, each person will choose two eggs. They’ll open them to see if it’s a match! The one with the most matches wins.

Jumping Jelly Bean

In Jumping Jelly Bean, each team gets enough cups for each jelly bean color to have its own cup and a full bag of Easter jelly beans. The challenge: sort the jelly beans by color into each of the 5 cups. The first to accurately do so wins this Easter game.

Jelly Jump

Have you ever played Jelly Jump before for Easter? Each person will need 2 water bottles that have been emptied and refilled with Easter jelly beans (make sure the bottle is dry before putting jelly beans in it). The other water bottle is empty. The first to move all their jelly beans into the other bottle wins. To make it a little harder, have teams of two. One will pour the jelly beans, and the other will hold the receiving bottle. If jelly beans drop, they will go back into the original bottle to be moved to the receiving bottle.

Easter Bingo

Easter Bingo can be played during spring and Easter while using jelly beans for place markers. Grab your Easter bingo cards and get started!

Easter Charades

Grab your Easter charade cards and start acting out the Easter words in no time. Each person will act out the word on the card to their team. If they can’t get it in a certain amount of time, the other team can try.

Three-legged Races

Teamwork is perfect for Easter that is why we love three-legged races! 

Divide into teams of two. Tie one person’s left leg to the other person’s right leg. Have all teams line up shoulder to shoulder and then race to the finish line. The first team to cross the finish line wins.

Easter Pinata

Having an Easter Pinata is a timeless activity where the pinata is filled with candy or non-food prizes all Easter themed. Friends and family take turns blindfolding and swinging a stick or bat to hit the pinata. When it breaks, it’s a race to gather the treats!

Egg Decorating Contest

Have an egg decorating contest this Easter. Print or write a variety of Easter-themed challenges on sheets of paper, such as “a happy bunny” or “a pretty flower.” Each person will take a hard-boiled egg and work to make their egg look like the description on their paper. The one whose egg most closely matches their challenge prompt wins! There can be “most creative” or “most unlike the prompt” winners too. You can be creative with this Easter game and give lots of prizes or just a few!

Easter puzzles

If you’re looking for a nice, calm Easter game, try gathering to enjoy a fun Easter puzzle together!

Combine some frosting lines and a graham cracker to make an Easter tic-tac-toe board. Then two colors of jelly beans or mini Cadbury eggs (3 for each player), and the game begins! The first to successfully land 3 in a row is the winner!

Egg Advent

Create an egg advent this Easter. Fill as many eggs as you’d like to have in your advent activity with treats, prizes, or a special outing. Each day leading up to Easter, open an egg and enjoy the contents that are inside. 

Ring Toss

A ring toss game is the perfect Easter activity, especially when you have a variety of ages. Old bottles can be painted/decorated, and then rings can be tossed. Each ring has a value, so players get points for the value of the bottle their ring lands on. The one with the most points after a designated period of time wins.

Catch it!

To play Catch Itt, poke a tiny hole in the bottom of a plastic cup. Thread a 6-8” string through the hole and tie a knot. The other end of the string will be connected to a plastic egg (either through a little hole in the egg or hot glue it to the top. Swing the cup and work to catch the egg!

Sack Races

Grab some big sacks (gunny sacks, potato sacks, or large garbage bags) put both legs in, line up shoulder to shoulder, and see who can get to the finish line first after the whistle blows in Sack races! This is one that is sure to bring a lot of laughs this Easter season.

Egg Drop

Everyone loves a good egg drop! Gather a wide variety of supplies and see who can create a well-insulated cage to protect the egg when dropped from a specified height. The egg that doesn’t break wins.

How Many?

Fill a jar with jelly beans (count them!) and have everyone guess how many are in the jar. The one to guess closest to the number wins. Be sure to have a small prize for the winner. 

Bunny Houses

Creating a bunny house is a fun spin on Gingerbread houses, use graham crackers, frosting, and candy to build delicious houses for your Peeps!

Homemade Easter Baskets

Get the creative juices flowing and make homemade Easter baskets! Each person creates an Easter basket of their liking. Awards for the most creative, the most springy, or the best use of materials.

Don’t Break the Egg

Give everyone a hard boiled egg to play Don’t break the egg! All participants pair up and smash the small ends of their eggs together. Those whose eggs don’t crack advance to the next level.

Egg the Neighbor

My kids love playing egg the neighbor, and for good reason! Fill an Easter basket with treats for a neighbor. See if you can doorbell ditch without getting caught! Be sure to attach a sign that says, “You’ve been egged!” and challenge them to egg someone else.

Puzzle Hunt

My kids love doing a puzzle hun to find their Easter baskets each year. Using a plain white puzzle from the craft store, write the location of the easter basket. Take the pieces apart and give them to each person. Once they’ve assembled their puzzle, they’ll be able to locate their basket! See who can find theirs first. 

Easter Egg Rolling

Get ready for Easter Egg rolling! You will want to hard boil and decorate your eggs, then send them rolling down the hill to see who makes it to the bottom without cracking. This is a fun game for the whole family, even grandma and grandpa. 

Easter Egg Rescue

Easter egg rescue is another fun Easter game. Using a box or bin, place painter’s tape in several overlapping strips (but leave some openings). Fill plastic eggs and place them in the bin. Using soup ladles, cooking spoons, and spatulas, take turns rescuing the eggs without getting stuck on the tape. When you successfully rescue an egg, enjoy the contents!

Pin the Tail on the Easter Bunny

Pin the Tail on the Easter Bunny is a classic game! Cut out a bunny silhouette or print one. Using cotton balls or pom poms, see who can pin the tail on the Easter Bunny while blindfolded. Play some fun music, chant, and cheer!

Egg-citing Rockets

Your kids are going to love creating and playing Egg-citing rockets! Using a toilet paper roll, create a rocket. Decorate it and make it fancy. Take the narrow side of the plastic egg and tape or glue it to the toilet paper tube. Once it’s assembled, take ¼ of an Alka-Seltzer tab and put it in the bottom half of the egg. Add 1 tablespoon of water, and quickly connect the two pieces of the egg together again. Hold onto the egg bottom and point the rocket away from all the people. See whose rocket has the longest or farthest flight! Your kids will want to do this again and again. 

Easter Egg Hunt

You can’t forget the classic Easter Egg Hunt. It’s an age-old tradition and a good one. Fill eggs with treats and prizes and hide them all around. Make a few special ones, like a golden egg with an extra valuable prize (like money, a bigger piece of candy, or a coupon for an outing). Let everyone search for eggs and then see how excited they are when they open them!

Would You Rather 

Would You Rather Easter edition is sure to spark a lot of laughs this Easter. Would you rather hunt for eggs or eat eggs? Would you rather be inside or outside on Easter? 

Showers of Spring

Showers of Spring might be the most unique Easter game of the year! Divide players into teams. One member of each team wears a shower cap. Teammates help him/her cover the cap in whipping cream or shaving cream. The other members of the team throw as many Cheetos onto the shower cap as possible. 1 Cheeto = 1 point. The team with the most points wins. 

Egg Tower

Cut up some paper towels or toilet paper rolls into smaller (1-2”) circles for this Egg tower game. Eggs can be boiled or raw. Have each person or team stack the eggs (paper towel roll, egg, paper towel roll, egg) to see who can build the tallest tower.
