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 🙂
