I have a huge family, so holidays around here is a little bit of crazy town. How does one tame the mayhem? Come up with games and activities that are equally as crazy! Today I want to share how we spend our time together at Easter with some super fun Easter party games.
**However, these party game ideas are perfect for anytime of year, birthday parties, camping trips, sleepovers too!**
Dah Dah Da Da- The Easter Olympics- nothing wrong with a little friendly competition to round out a holiday! This is a compilation of the 6 funnest cheap Easter party games you’ll ever witness, perfect for Easter weekend. They are great for all ages and won’t cost you much time or money to put together. The winner gets a haul of great Easter treats, this year there might just be a sweet Kinder Surprise for the gold medal team!
There is a lot of kids ranging in age from newborn to 17, the games need to be fun/ funny and appropriate for all ages. To keep things fair, the littlest (5 and under) get their own revised version of the games, and the older kids get teamed up in pairs- one big kid, one little kid.
Fun Easter Party Games for Easter Olympics
Egg Hunt Race
A spin on the traditional Easter Egg Hunt- Eggs are hid over a large area, the teams line up on the starting line when the whistle blows, one player runs to find an egg, but are only allowed to grab one at a time, then run back to the starting point where they tag their partner. The partner then finds one egg, and the switching continues until all eggs are found. Each egg found is worth 1 point.
Supplies Needed for Egg Hunt Race:
Plastic filler eggs, baskets or bags for collecting.
This is Easter party game is fun but a little messy, best done outside. One member of each team wears a shower cap covered in shaving cream. The other teammate gets to throw cheesies at their head. The more cheesies to stick to their cap the better. Each cheesy stuck is worth one point, all teams gets a cup with the same amount of cheesies in it.
Supplies Needed for Cheesy Toss:
Shower caps, shaving cream, large bag of cheeses.
This game was a bit of a work in progress. It started out as blowing the balloons with a straw but it was too hard to keep them in their own lane, so it switched to pushing them with their heads. Each team gets a balloon, one person has to push the ballon down the lane using only their head, when they reach the end the other person has to push it back. Points earned according to the place finished. First done 6 points, second 5 points etc.
Supplies Needed for your Balloon Push:
Balloons, Masking or painters tape for making lanes.
This game will be a crowd pleaser, the kids get a tasty snack while competing! Dangle shoe lace licorice from a pole. The team who can eat the licorice the fastest without using their hands, wins. Can also be done with doughnuts. Points earned according to the place finished.
Supplies Needed for your Liquorice Dangle:
a long pole (a boom handle works fine), yarn, string licorice.
Ping Pong Flop
This will possibly be the funniest game you’ll ever witness, have your camera ready! Each player will get a cracker box with a hole cut in it strapped to their back. Inside the box will be 2 ping pong balls. The first player to bounce the ping pong balls out of the hole wins. Points earned according to the place finished. Note- Cut the hole a bit smaller to make the game last longer… and get more laughs! This one is perfect for the adults to try too!
Supplies Needed for Ping Pong Flop:
Cracker boxes, ribbon for tying to waist, ping pong balls.
Bouncy Ball Toss
This game takes a bit for everyone to have a turn so I’d suggest leaving it until the last. Line up bowls of varying sizes each with a point value. Teams toss bouncy balls one at a time trying to get them to stay in the bowl. Each ball that stays in a bowl get the point value of the bowl.
Supplies Needed for your Bouncy Ball Toss:
Kitchen bowls, paper and marker for points, bouncy balls.
Candy guessing game
Each Player gets a paper and pen, they must close their eyes while the judge places a candy in their mouth. They must guess the candy and write down what they think it is. For each right guess they receive a point.
We use a piece of bristol board to keep track of the score.
The gold medal winner receives a special Easter treat surprise!

These games. Are. Awesome! Totally trying some of these for our Easter-pa-looza at my house this year. 😉
This was so much fun,the kids had a lot of fun.Can’t wait to see what you have in store for this Easter.
Fantastic! I organize an egg hunt every year for “the grandkids”. We do the egg hunt and at the end, I give each participant a useful tool for their toolboxes (which were the prize a few years ago). That way, when they move out on their own, they will have a ready toolbox! These games would definitely stretch out the fun though, and get the parents involved!
These are definitely the most unique, fun and easy to organize activities for kids of all ages that I’ve found after hours of searching! We’re taking our kids camping this weekend with 2 other families and I needed some activities for a broad range of ages. These fit the bill perfectly! Thanks for sharing!!
I’m so glad you found them Kellie! Hope you have fun on your camping trip!
Thanks for posting this! I’m in charge of games this year at our family Christmas party, and we are definitely going to try a few of these games.
They are so fun! They will have a blast
That was so cute! I really want to try it this year. Our family has loads of cousins and I’m sure it will be a cute thing to watch. Thanks for showing us these amazing ideas!
I promise it will be so much fun, the kids love it, plus its always a good laugh!

We are doing an end of year carnival. I am a homeroom mother for 5th graders. It’s hard to come up with something that boys and girls will like. The ping pong game is perfect. With prizes that are candy attached to ribbons. Perfect!!!!
So fun…and funny!
Our family had much fun last Easter having a cake decorating contest.
We drew numbers for partners. Set a time limit and the fun began. Sent photos to
relatives to judge.
That is a genius idea!! good one
