How Many Eggs?
- Large glass jar filled with chocolate eggs
- Small pieces of paper
- Easter basket
How To Play: Have children write their name on a small piece of paper and their guess as to how many chocolate eggs are in the jar. The child who guesses the right number or comes closest takes the jar of candy home to share with their family.
- Easter Basket
- Papers with Easter objects written on them
How To Play: Put papers with Easter objects written on them into basket. Divide children into two groups. Flip a coin to see which team goes first. Invite a child from the playing team to approach the chalkboard, draw a slip of paper and read it to themselves. On your mark, the child should then draw the object in hopes that his/her team members will guess the object on their paper. If the team guesses correctly before time runs out, they score a point. If the playing team does not guess correctly, the other team has five seconds to try to come up with the correct answer. If they guess correctly, they score a point and it is their turn to play.
This game can be simplified for young players utilizing words such as: carrot, bunny, candy. Make more difficult for older players by using short phrases: chocolate bunnies taste good, marshmallow chicks are yellow, etc.
- A cut out bunny for each child
- Cotton balls (for tail)
How To Play: Everyone makes their own version of the Easter Bunny. Hang them up for decoration and if you wish have a Beauty Contest. Recognize the most creative, prettiest, funniest, etc.
