10 Easter Activities for All Ages + Free Easter Bingo Printable

I am so excited for SPRING.  We've had a lot of snow around here, so I'm in the mood to start posting some Easter picnic ideas for y'all.  So to start springtime off right, here's some easy Easter Activities.  These Easter party games work for kids, preschool, church, parties, or whatever.  Many of these are Easter minute-to-win-it games and then I've added some other springtime games so you have a lot to choose from.  I've created a free Easter Bingo Printable just for you at the bottom of this post.  So let the sunshine in and let's get ready for SPRING and EASTER!

*I received products from Oriental Trading Company to review and try.  All opinions and ideas are my own.  This post may contain affiliate links at no cost to my readers.



You will need only a few supplies for all of these games.  The main items you need are plastic eggs and jelly beans.  Many of the other items you will have around your house or in your Easter stuff.






1.  Plastic Egg Tower Game


For this game you will only need plastic colored eggs.  Open all the eggs beforehand.  Set the timer for one minute.  Players start stacking the eggs as fast as they can.  Players compete and see who can build the biggest egg tower in one minute.  Depending on the amount of people, you may need a lot of plastic eggs.  I like to buy them in bulk for cheap.  You can get bulk orders of eggs from Oriental Trading Company or Amazon.






2. Jelly Bean Pickup Game


For this game you will need straws and jelly beans.  The smaller the jelly bean, the better to make pickup easier.  Give each player a handful of jelly beans, a small bowl or basket, and a straw.  Set the timer for 1 minute.  Players use the straw to pick up one jelly bean at a time and transfer it into the bowl by sucking up air through the straw.  The player with the most jelly beans in their bowl by the end of the minute is the winner.






3.  Jelly Bean Seek and Find


Fill an Easter basket or bowl with fake grass.  You can use the plastic grass here or even real grass if you prefer.  Hide a good amount of jelly beans (these are my favorite kind!) all over in the grass.  Mix it up well.  Set the timer for 1 minute and let players quickly find as many jelly beans as they can.  When they find one, they should pull it out and put it in their own personal collection.  This game is better played outside since it could get messy.  Smaller jelly beans will be harder to find.  Choose according to the age of your players.






4. Easter Egg Decorating with Stickers


An easy and traditional Easter activity for kids is always decorating eggs.  If you are putting on a large party, how about decorating eggs with stickers instead of messy cups of liquid.  I got these Easter Egg Decorating Craft Kits from Oriental Trading Company.  They came with 12 individual foam sticker packets.  It was so easy to make and SUPER CUTE!  This would be a fun activity for any Easter or Spring party.  Check out all of their Easter party supplies for more ideas!





5.  Easter Memory Game


This Easter activity is not a minute-to-win-it game but instead a game to play like concentration.  You will need jelly beans and plastic Easter eggs.  Make sure you have 2 of each color of jelly bean.  Place the jelly beans in rows in the playing area.  You can mix the colors up however you want.  Use the plastic egg halves to cover each jelly bean.  Let players take turns choosing 2 eggs at a time to uncover.  If the jelly bean colors match then that player gets to eat those jelly beans and the eggs that were covering them are removed from the game.  If they do not match, simply cover the 2 choices with eggs again and let the next player try.  Play until all the jelly bean matches have been found.  This game works well with little kids that are too young for minute-to-win-it games.  Older kids would have fun too if you make the playing area bigger and use a lot more jelly beans.





6.  Easter Egg Match Game


Another simple minute-to-win-it game for Easter parties is this Easter Egg Match game.  Simply mismatch all your plastic Easter eggs and put them in a big basket.  Set the timer for 1 minute.  Players simply open the mismatched eggs and then put them together again with the correct color match.  The player who correctly matches the most eggs wins!  This one is super fun and harder than you think.  Make sure all your plastic eggs are the same brand since many eggs from different companies do not fit together well.






7.  Egg Spoon Relay Race


This is an easy game with a lot of laughs.  The egg spoon race is played like a relay race in teams if you want.  All you need is a spoon for each player and a real egg.  Line players up outside in a row and have them put their egg on the spoon.  Each player must race the other players to the finish line keeping their egg on the spoon.  If you are doing a relay then they can run back to the start line and pass the egg to the next player.  You can use raw eggs.  This is hilarious when they are dropped.  You can use boiled eggs, to lessen the blow when they are dropped or even plastic eggs for younger crowds.






8. Sticker Eggs Minute to Win It Game


This game only needs plastic eggs and a sticker sheet for each player.  Set the timer for 1 minute.  Players remove stickers from the sticker sheet and place them on their egg.  They try to get as many stickers as they can on their egg.  The player with with most stickers on their egg, wins.  I used Spring and Easter Stickers like these.







9.  Bunny Hop Race


This is a classic Easter party game.  Simply have players line up in a row and say "Go!".  Players have to hop like a bunny all the way down to the finish line.  Can be played as a relay too.  It's fun for kidlets and hilarious for adults and teens!
