When Easter comes the kids deserve to have some fun. So why not let the kids play a few fun Easter games. This can be an Easter treat that’s actually good for them. Here are a few favorites that I know kids will love.
Who’s the Hopping Bunny?
This is one of the fun Easter games that can be used with a group of children so it is ideal as an Easter classroom game or an Easter party game. The children form themselves into a circle. Choose one child to be the Spotter. The Spotter goes out of the room or turns his back on the others. While the Spotter isn’t looking choose a child from the circle to be the Hopping Bunny.
The Hopping Bunny chooses a movement for everyone to copy. Movements might include hopping movements like jumping on two feet with hands by sides, jumping on two feet with hands held up like paws, hopping on one foot or bouncing the body up and down with feet not leaving the ground.
The Hopping Bunny can be creative with the actions and will need to change movements often. Once everyone is copying the Hopping Bunny’s movements, the Spotter returns and starts observing the group.
The Spotter’s job is to work out who the Hopping Bunny is in three guesses. The Hopping Bunny changes the movements as often as they can without being seen by the Spotter. Everyone follows the Hopping Bunny’s movements. After the Spotter has had three guesses or when the Spotter guesses who the Hopping Bunny is, the game can start over with a new Hopping Bunny and a new Spotter being chosen.
When you play this game, encourage the kids not to look at the Hopping Bunny as this will make it obvious who the Spotter is. Instead suggest that they scan the group and change their movement when they see that others are changing their movements.
The traditional relay race can be used as a fun Easter game by giving it an Easter twist. Here are a few suggestions. For the Human Egg Roll Relay each person has to lie down and roll to the other end. You will need to make sure there is plenty of space between each team for this relay so that children don’t roll into each other. It is also a good idea to keep the track short so that children don’t have to roll too far.
For the Bunny Hop Relay children hop along the track with feet together and hands held up in front like paws so that they look like a hopping bunny.
You can also try the Egg Roll Relay. For this relay, each team is given an egg that they roll from one end to the other. Each person has to bend down and push the egg gently to make it roll.
The Egg and Spoon Relay is an old favorite that is perfect for Easter. This relay is one of those fun Easter games that is ideal for all ages. Each team is given an egg and each player is given a spoon. The children race from one end to the other holding the egg in the spoon. At the other end they have to carefully pass the egg from their spoon to the next person’s spoon.
There are plenty of fun Easter games that you can use to entertain children at Easter time. These games make a great Easter treat for large or small groups and best of all these are Easter treats that won’t rot their teeth.
