Easter Puzzles and Party Games

Updated on March 26, 2012

Easter is a special time for many families to get together and bond with each other. There are some families that have certain traditions, which they observe to make the day and the occasion even more special.

Very often, part of the festivities is a well laden dining table that features some dishes and recipes that have been handed down from mother to daughter over the years some of which can be so complicated that they can really only be prepared once a year – for Easter!

However, after the main meal is served and the dishes put away, what does one do to entertain the guests? The quick and easy answer is Easter Party Games!!

Egg and Spoon Race, Anyone?

Party Games

Easter Party Games, such as egg rolling, egg bowling or egg - spoon relays, if you have a large enough crowd and a lawn to hold it in, will be rollicking merriment. You can also hold a traditional Easter Bunny Game. You can vary the rules by hiding only one specially decorated egg, instead of a slew of colored boiled eggs, which the finder can keep as his prize or, if you use a plastic egg, it can have a piece of paper inside stating what the prize is. Alternatively, you can have teams of two, pairing an older kid with a younger one and declaring as the winner the pair who gathers the most number of eggs.

If space is a problem, you can hold some quiet Easter Party Games such as egg painting or Easter basket decorating with prizes given to the most creative, most colourful, most imaginative outputs.

Easter Puzzles

Easter Puzzles are always welcome. Depending on the ages of the guests present, the amount of space available for people to move around and your creativity as a host, what happens afterwards can be as fun and enjoyable as you can make it.

Online Easter Games

Since almost everybody goes online these days, Online Easter Games may be quite popular. You may want to suggest that your guests bring along their iPads to your party without telling them why. You can check the Internet for the selection of Online Easter Games that you can choose from. There are many Easter Bunny Games in the Internet that you can pick and adapt to the age groups of your guests.

Need more ideas?

Other quiet games that you can organize are Easter puzzles, Easter word scrambles, Easter Riddles and Twenty Questions about Easter. You can also play Easter Bingo or Easter Pictionary if the kids are of the right school age and you can prepare the equipment for it. Easter Puzzles can be a fun way for the kids to know more about Easter and its traditions. For these games, however, you will need to have a Games Master who will preside over the games and some adults who will serve as judges and/or referees.

When you do hold these Easter Party games, you should also make sure and have appropriate prizes for the kids and for the adults, too, if you plan on having them join the games.
