40 Best Easter Games for Kids (& The Whole Family)

Easter is one of those holidays that just begs for some serious (and not-so-serious) family time together!

Whether you are religious or not, Easter Sunday is made for brunches, scavenger hunts, relay races, cards, photo ops, and—what we’re here for—fun Easter games.

A classic egg hunt in the backyard is pretty much a given, and for good reason! 

It’s so fun to watch the kiddos’ faces light up with each discovery. But don’t be fooled into thinking the fun stops there! Exciting, Easter-themed games for kids (and adults) abound.

If you’re hosting this year, or you just want to help out the host and hostess with some great ideas, here are our 40 best Easter games for kids and the whole family.

Easter Games for Kids

Alrighty, these are our very best Easter games for the little tykes! 

Easter weekend will be something to look forward to every year when they know these fun Easter activities await.

Not to mention they are a great way to keep little hands busy and build problem-solving skills while you prepare the big meal.

1. Can You Find All the Easter Items?

Can You Find All the Easter Items?

There’s nothing like a good old-fashioned scavenger hunt, isn’t there? This Easter version is perfect for keeping the Littles happy and hopping! 

Easy to print out lots of extra copies (just in-case the neighbor children want to drop by), all you need is a set of pencils and some fun detective work. 

2. Roll a Bunny

Get their creative, drawing juices flowing with this fun Roll-a-Bunny dice game! 

The little prompts help with creating an adorable rabbit they can then name and give away (or put on your fridge). So cute!

3. Raining Peeps

Simply buy some cans of shaving cream and several shower caps at the Dollar Tree, and you’re halfway to some seriously funny family fun with this Raining Peeps game!

We’ve done this one with Cheetos, but Marshmallow Peeps are even more fun. Not to mention way more Easter-themed.

Simply have the kids wear their caps covered in shaving cream, toss Peeps at them, and whoever has the most once time runs out, wins!

4. Inflatable Bunny Ring Toss

So cute and easy for all ages, this inflatable bunny ring toss is made for fun! With its soft edges and sweet colors, even toddlers will love this game.

You can make up all sorts of rules (ex. how far back to stand, etc) or just let their love of throwing things fly!

5. Bunny Says

Just like Simon Says, but it’s with the Easter Bunny!

An easy game and an effective way to get all the wriggles and energy out, any adult can be the Easter Bunny and shout out how to move.

“Easter Bunny says—help Mom stir the gravy, and set the table!” may or may not be used. A’hem. 

6. Match the Eggs Printable Game

Match the Eggs Printable Game

Keep the younger kids busy while the adults visit or cook together with this fun “Match the Eggs” printable game.

It’s simple enough for the young crowd, but kids of all ages love to match things! A quick and easy way for the kiddos to settle down a bit after the sugar rush they’re bound to get. 

Best part? It’s easily printable right at home. Click Here to find more printable Easter fun.

7. Who is Most Like the Easter Bunny?

This one is simple but unique!

This great game called “Who is Most Like the Easter Bunny,” is such a fun little different game for the children. They’ll love it when they get a point for something they’re wearing or doing! 

8. Bunny Hop

The farmers are in a tizzy with this Bunny Hop game! Board games are so classic and fun, and this Easter-themed one is no exception!

Kids (even the older kids) will love hopping and skipping ‘round the board, testing their memories, and spending time with one another. 

9. Easter Balloon Race

We love this option for outdoor easter games! 

Place blown-up balloons between their legs and see who can make it to the finish line first without losing their balloon.

If it’s warm enough where you live at Easter, do it with water balloons for some refreshing, laughter-inducing fun! 

10. Pin the Egg on the Bunny

Just like the classic Pin the Tail on the Donkey, Pin the Egg on the Bunny brings a fun splash of color to your Easter games!

It can be played over and over, too. Don’t forget the blindfold and maybe a prize for the winner(s)! 

Easter Games for Adults


We understand that most Easter games are focused around the little kids, but that doesn’t mean the adults can’t have their fun, too!

You can have a great time with your grownup pals and family members when you pick one of these fun options.

11. Glow-in-the-Dark Easter Egg Hunt

Easter scavenger hunts don’t have to just be for the younger crowd!

Stay up late and do a Glow-in-the-Dark Easter Egg Hunt! These great, glowing eggs will light up the night. Provide a few baskets or bags and, of course, a special prize for the winner.

You could go with a classic assortment of Easter chocolates if you wish, but you could also shoot for more grown-up prizes like gift cards or a wine and cheese basket.

12. Tap & Crack Egg Game

Make some hard-boiled eggs and pass them around so everyone has one.

Everyone sits in a circle and has to use their egg to crack the egg of their neighbors without cracking their own. At the end, have everyone get peelin’ so you can make some Deviled Eggs, stat!

13. Name That Bunny Trivia

Who knew there were so many famous rabbits?

Adults will love brainstorming with their kid-partners during this fun, printable game. It’s an instant download, for instant laughter and bonding time!

14. Easter Costume Contest

Have friends and family dress up in Easter themes (chocolate bunny, peeps, eggs, Biblical references, etc.), and host a runway costume contest!

Have judges pick winners for best dressed, most creative, worst costume, and more.

Of course, this one will want to be planned out in advance, so let your guests know as soon as possible so they can come prepared. You need time to prep that runway, too.

15. Guess the Jelly Beans

Can’t go wrong with a classic game of Guess the Jelly Beans!

Simply place them in a Mason jar or any see-through container (with a lid). Don’t forget to count them as you put them in though!

The winner gets to keep the jar, and if you’re lucky maybe they’ll share.

16. Beer Hunt

Instead of eggs, place beer bottles or mini liquor bottles around the yard for adults to find!

Who needs eggs when you can have a craft beer or strawberry margarita, am I right?

Adults will love this fun twist on an Easter egg hunt. 

17. Easter Word Scramble

Use this download or make you own!

Introverts especially need a little time and permission to stop socializing for just a minute, so they’ll love the opportunity to do a fun Easter word scramble.

This one is great for the whole family, too!

18. Capture the Egg

Just like Capture the Flag, but it’s an egg instead!

Adults will love reliving their childhood days with this throwback game.

Prepare for the whole neighborhood to get involved, too! We think this one is bound to become a yearly tradition in no time. 

19. Truth or Dare Egg Grab

Sit around in a circle with plastic eggs in the middle of everyone.

The eggs will have a card inside that either reads “Truth” or “Dare” followed by a prompt (ex: TRUTH: “Do you actually love your spouse’s cooking?”).

They can either respond or take a shot! A super fun and festive spin on a classic drinking game.

20. Easter Scavenger Egg Hunt

Easter scavenger hunts are definitely NOT just for the little ones!

You can find so many good ones online to download, or completely make up your own for a one-of-a-kind experience. Have some prizes for the best “hunter.” 

For some scavenger hunts that DO include the kids, here are some more great ideas:

Tip: For teams, color code the egg to the puzzle, teams must find their colored egg to find their puzzle piece. The first team to do so wins!

38. Eggs & Tasks

Inside the easter egg, place a task the finder must do when they find the egg!

Example: Hop three times, yell “Happy Easter!” in a high-pitched voice, sing a song, wear bunny ears for 30 minutes, do the bunny hop, etc.

These are loads of fun, and bound to produce plenty of belly laughs.

The team with the most eggs found wins!

40. Golden Egg

Hide just one golden egg which will contain the ultimate prize of your choice — money, lottery ticket, movie tickets, gift card, restaurant certificate, an Apple watch, earbuds, etc.

Now, of course, you want this egg to be hidden very well. After all, you don’t want it to be found too quickly! 

You can always start giving clues like hot/warm/cold/cool to get them in the right area if it turns out you are a master egg hider.
