    Default Budget Easter Games

    We are having an Easter Celebration in the park with our homeschool group. Does anyone have any ideas for some wacky, fun, outdoor group games for children 9 and up? Oh, did I mention that we need to do it on the VERY CHEAP? Thanks, Linda

    Balancing an egg on a spoon! Use a real easter egg, or a plastic one

    maybe filled with water (or even a treat). The kids have to race from

    one point to another while balancing the egg on the spoon. If it drops,

    they have to go back to the start.



    If you fill it with a small treat, then maybe give the winner an extra

    egg, but all the kids get to keep thier egg with the treat in it.



    You could also do sort of a bean bag toss, except again, use plastic

    eggs. Take a cardboard box, cut circles out into it, and have them do

    an egg toss.





    You can do a real egg toss, too. Every one pairs up- two kids or 1

    adult and 1 kid. If the numbers don't match, you can do it with three.

    Take an unboiled egg, and have everyone stand about 3 feet apart from

    their partner. They toss the egg back and forth gently. After every 2nd

    or 4th toss, they each take a big step backwards.



    The goal, of course, is to NOT break the egg. Last one standing with an

    intact egg wins.





    Prizes for all of these can be something simple like a jelly bean

    filled plastic egg. Jelly Beans are $.50 at Wal-mart for a bag, and you

    can get a bag of 48 plastic easter eggs for $1.88 there, too.



    You could also do an egg hunt, and have the kids bring eggs they

    decorated. If you want to do a plastic filled egg hunt, then rather

    than having one person responsible, have each parent bring enough

    filled eggs for their child. Maybe do a set amount- 10 eggs per kid,

    and mark them with their names. Then, each kid looks for thier own

    eggs, and no kids end up with extras.





    Hope those help ya some

    <font size="3" face="Arial">12.0pt;font-family:Arial;">Just look up birthday party ideas and change the theme of
    them to Easter. Just about every game can be themed to the occasion.
    <font size="3" face="Arial">12.0pt;font-family:Arial;">
    <ul type="disc">
    <li class="MsoNormal"><font size="3" face="Arial">12.0pt;font-family:Arial;">A few games we’ve played in
    the past are races rolling Easter eggs (you can use real eggs or plastic
    eggs that are taped shut with a little weight in them) with your nose (not
    as easy as it sounds)
    <li class="MsoNormal"><font size="3" face="Arial">12.0pt;font-family:Arial;">Classic egg hunt, but instead
    of each filled with candy, have them filled with little papers that form
    the answers to a puzzle, the person who gets the answer first wins a small
    prize and the person with the most eggs gets another prize.
    <li class="MsoNormal"><font size="3" face="Arial">12.0pt;font-family:Arial;">Put donuts on a string and hang
    them from a string between two trees and have a donut eating contest –
    to make it the messiest ever make sure they are powdered sugar type, lol.
    <li class="MsoNormal"><font size="3" face="Arial">12.0pt;font-family:Arial;">Have each of the kids bring a
    hat and have a Easter bonnet decorating contest – have each family
    bring things to share and use[/list]
    <font size="3" face="Arial">12.0pt;font-family:Arial;">
    <font size="3" face="Arial">12.0pt;font-family:Arial;">I hope a few of these spark other ideas for you
    <font size="3" face="Arial">12.0pt;font-family:Arial;">

    How about a three-legged race. Have two kids tie one leg together and run the race.

    Hot potato, only use an egg. This is kind of a younger game, but older kids might do it if there is a prize involved and play some older, hiphop music or something that appeals to 9 and older (I have no clue........mine are still young)

    Hope this helps
