Ring Toss is a classic party game and it's always fun for kids and for adults. Well, here is good old ring toss with an Easter theme. This cute little inflatable game is in the shape of a bunny and his ears are what you are going to throw your ring at. Do you think you will be successful and win this funny bunny party game?

Bunny Bowling Game

Have you ever heard of the Bunny Bowling Game? It's a DIY game you can easily make at home using small, empty bottles left over from water or soda or juice, or you can use the bigger 2 liter size if you have them.

Get a coloring page or sticker sheet with some bunny pictures on it. If you choose the coloring page, color the bunnies. You can paint your soda bottle if you like and then attach the bunny picture or sticker to it using tape or glue.

You will need 10 empty bottles to make the bowling pins. When the bottles are decorated to your satisfaction, you will be ready to play.

Set the Bunny Bowling Pins up in a triangle...just like regular bowling pins. (one pin in front, two in the second row, three in the third, and four in the last row) Then let your kids roll a ball at the pins. The object of the game is to knock down as many pins as you can in two tries. If you get a strike (that's when you knock all ten pins down at once) you only get one turn. When one person has rolled the ball two times, re-set the pins and let the next child have his or her turn. Keep going for as long as you want to play!

I found a bowling set that is already decorated for Easter if you don't feel like making your own set. It's not expensive and I am sure it will be almost as much fun as making your own.

The Good Old Egg And Spoon Relay Race

Egg And Spoon Relay Race

The good old Egg and Spoon Relay Race...do you remember playing that one when you were a child? Can you recall the memory of walking quickly, yet holding your body very stiff so you didn't drop the egg off the spoon? Now your child will be able to have just as much fun now, as you did them.

You will need:

  • A Couple Medium/Large Wooden Or Plastic Spoon - the size of your spoon depends on how difficult you want this challenge to be.
  • Several Plastic Or Hard Boiled Eggs - have extra just in case some of them fall!
  • Two Teams Of Kids

Map out a race course ... you can always put an obstacle in the middle...like make the kids walk around a chair. Each team member must balance an egg in a spoon, walk the race course, and return to the start line to hand the egg over to the next team member.

The start line is where they get the egg in their spoon, they walk the relay race course and come to the next member on their team. They either hand over the spoon with the egg in it or put the egg from one spoon to another, then the next player must complete the course before they switch the egg off to the next member of their team. You, as the adult in charge, get to make the rules like...no touching the egg, if the egg falls you must go back to the start line, or you could let them go to the middle of the course, etc. It's all up to you how you'd like to play it.

The team that finishes first is the winner!

You can use teaspoons, tablespoons, serving spoons, wooden spoons, it doesn't matter. They even sell sets in stores that come with six spoons and six eggs. Check out Amazon to find one of those if you like.

Hippity Hoppity Kids Game Ideas - Easter Bunny Tag

Hippity Hoppity Bunny Tag For Kids

Hopping Bunny Tag makes me think of the song, Hippity Hoppity Easter's On It's Way! Bunny Tag is really simple to play. It's tag with an extra rule. Instead of running or walking, you must hop like a bunny. And the same as tag, one child is "IT" and they must hop around after the other hopping kids until they "TAG" one of them. Then the tagged child becomes "IT". This goes on until everyone has had a turn being "IT" or until everyone is sick of the game. If you can, get some of this on film. Watching the kids hop around is pretty funny!

Fun Pin The Tail On The Bunny Game

Pin The Tail On The Easter Bunny

Pin The Tail On The Easter Bunny is a version of one of the oldest party games I can remember playing, Pin The Tail On The Donkey! This is a classic kids' party game and you can change the theme to fit just about any party, any time of the year. Here are some of the ones I am familiar with:

  • Pin The Nose On Rudolph
  • Pin The Nose On The Snowman
  • Pin The Tail On The Horse
  • Pin The Tail On The Pig
  • Pin The Eye On The Minion - Despicable Me Even Has One
  • Pin The Eye Patch On The Pirate

The list goes on and on ... but today all we really need is the bunny one!

How To Play Egg Bocce Ball

Egg Boche Ball Game

This is a take-off on the Italian game Boche Ball. Boche is similar in some ways to bowling. You try to get your ball close to the "pallino" by rolling it.

You will need:

  • A White Hard Boiled Egg
  • 2 Dyed Hard Boiled Eggs For Each Player. Each player should have a different color pair of eggs.

The first player goes to the start line and using an underhanded throw, tosses the pallino. Then he or she must try to roll their dyed egg, trying to get it as close to the pallino as possible. The first player tosses 1 of the dyed eggs. Then each player takes a turn with one of their eggs. Each child then gets a second turn.

There you have it, a take on a fun lawn game re-designed to fit the Easter party theme.

Easter Egg Ring Toss Game

This is a game sold on Amazon and it's lots of fun for kids. It involves tossing a ring around a post on a decorated egg shaped base. This might be something you can make with some squares of wood, six inch posts, and some decorated Easter wrapping paper or paint. And of course you will need rings.

This is a great way to entertain your party guests during the Easter season. I found a good deal on these Happy Easter Sacks at Party City. Right now the price is under ten dollars for 6 of these colorfully decorated sacks.

Sacks For Your Easter Bunny Sack Race

The Bunny Hop Race

The Bunny Hop Race is a potato sack race disguised in Easter colors and each child must wear some bunny ears while they are hopping down to the finish line. That gives this classic game the Easter twist it needs.

You can use old pillowcases to make your party sacks. Decorate them by drawing an Easter Egg on them. Use markers and draw some Easter Egg designs on them.

Decide upon a start line and a mid-point for your race. The kids will get into the sacks at the start line, race by hopping over to the mid-point holding the sacks up with their hands. The kids have to circle the mid-point and race back to the start line...which is now the finish line. The first kid back over the finish line is the winner.

You can also make this a relay style race by forming teams. Can't you see those kids hopping all over your house or yard in those colorful sacks posted up above?

Egg Toss 2 For Easter

This video shows a different kind of egg toss game than the one I talked about up above. In this toss game there are two lines of people standing across from each other and they are tossing eggs back and forth across a three or so foot area. If you are brave you could use raw eggs for this type of game, but since it is for kids, I would go with the hard-boiled kind.

Watch the video and see if this game is just what you have been looking for?
