If your church has special services during Easter you might want to plan some activities for kids to play. Here are 5 Easter games for church that children are sure to have a blast playing.
Easter Game for Kids #1- Egg Roll
This is a very easy game and does not require a lot of preparation. All you need is an egg for each child. The eggs can be plain or decorated, but you want to make sure they are hard boiled in case one breaks. Set up a starting line and finish line for the game. If you are outside on concrete you can do this very easily by using chalk. Instruct the children that they have to roll their egg to the finish line by only using their nose. The first one across the line without using their hands will win.
Easter Game for Kids #2- Bunny, Bunny, Hop
This is a variation of Duck, Duck, Goose. Since it is a game most children know you probably won’t have to do a lot of explaining and you really do not have to buy anything to play this game. Everyone will sit in a circle. The person that is “it” will go around the circle saying “Bunny” until they get to the person they want to pick and then they will say “Hop”. Instead of chasing each other around the circle they will have to hop making it much more silly and fun.
Easter Game for Kids #3- Spoon Walk
For this game you will need a spoon and an egg for each person. The eggs can be boiled or not depending on the amount of mess you are willing to clean. You will set up a starting line and a finish line. Each person will place their egg on the spoon and when you say go they will race to the finish line without having the egg fall off of the spoon.
Easter Game for Kids #4- Easter Pictionary
You can make your own game of Pictionary with words or phrases that you associate with Easter. Some of the words you could use would be cross, Easter Lilly, rabbit, chocolate, eggs, or any other word that you associate with Easter.
