Easter Party Games

Easter games and activites for the best Easter party for kids! Be sure to check out our main Easter activities page for even more fun ideas including Easter crafts, egg hunt tips, egg decoration ideas, Easter printables, online Easter games and more.
Remember, most games can be adapted to all ages of children with a bit of creative thinking. Also, if you choose to play a game that requires teams and you have an odd number of children, one person will need to go twice. Ask for a volunteer and if one doesn't surface you might want to leave it up to the team to choose who they think will be the fastest.
Easter Twenty Questions
Teacher starts by choosing an Easter related person, place, or thing. The teacher says, "I'm thinking of something". The children try to guess what it is by asking no more than twenty questions that can be answered "YES", "NO", or I DON'T KNOW". The student who guesses correctly is next up.
- 16 Laminated cardstock Easter eggs with shapes, words, or pictures on back
- Board to hang eggs on
How To Play: Depending on the skill level of your children put 8-16 laminated Easter eggs with shapes, words, or pictures on the back on the chalkboard. The players must remember which egg has which object on the back (similar to concentration).
Teacher thinks of person, place, or thing. Teacher gives a clue. Begin at one end of the room and work your way around allowing each student to take a turn guessing until one student solves the case. The student who solves the case goes next.
Example: Easter Bunny
Clue: I'm thinking of someone who has big ears.
Clue: He's a painter.
Clue: His job is to fill baskets.
Clues should be appropriate for the knowledge of the children playing.
- Make your own egg shaped bingo cards
- Small candy, such as M&M's, for markers
- Easter basket to hold call cards
How To Play: Create your own cards using an Easter, April, or candybar theme. Easter theme might include: basket, egg, green, yellow, blue, bunny, chocolate. April theme might include: Umbrella, trees, rain, boots, raincoat, puddle, tulips. A candybar theme might include: Skor, Mr. Goodbar, Milkyway, Hershey, Kisses, Hugs, Joy (go to the grocery store for this one).
Another variation to create your own Bingo card: Write the names of all the children on pieces of paper and drop them into an Easter basket. Note: remove the names of any children absent that day.
Create a BINGO card with blank spaces. Across the top it will say "N-A-M-E-S". Have the children go around and have their classmates sign their name to the spaces on the card. When all are done, have them sit down at their tables.
Play NAMES by drawing a name out of the bag. Play regular BINGO or blackout. If the children really like the game, then play "Postage Stamp" any 2x2 square (4 names) on the board, etc.
