What better way to burn off the Easter sugar high than with exciting, active, Easter-themed games? The egg hunt might be short-lived, but you can continue the fun with outdoor races and relays. If the weather isn't cooperating, provide some fun indoor entertainment so that the children can still celebrate Easter with egg-related games.
Fill a jar with mini chocolate eggs or other Easter candy and challenge the children to guess how many eggs are in the jar. The child whose guess is closest to the correct amount wins the jar of candy.
Cut out egg shapes from card stock; then cut the eggs in half, making sure to cut each egg a different way. Give each child an egg half and challenge them to find the child with the matching half.
Set up an obstacle course outside, and choose one child to be the "bunny" while the other children are the "eggs." Each egg picks a standard color. The bunny calls out a color, and whoever picked that color begins to sprint through the obstacle course with the bunny following. If the bunny catches the egg, the egg becomes the new bunny. If not, the bunny calls out another color.
Give each child a wooden spoon and an egg. Children must race through the obstacle course as fast as possible, keeping the egg on the spoon -- if it falls off, the child is out. Whoever finishes first is the winner.
