Fun Easter Games
1. The Easter Desserts Challenge
Are you and your friends fond of baking? Do you love to exchange recipes with your friends? If so, this Easter you can have a whole lot of fun with your friends. Try out our ‘Easter Desserts Challenge’. The way this challenge works is this; You and your friends would try out new Easter dessert recipes. (You can take a look at some of our recipes)
After creating the desserts, you could make it a fun Easter game and vote among yourselves for your most favourite dessert. The winner would get an Easter Gift Hamper filled with exciting goodies and artisanal food and drinks.
2. The Easter Egg Hunt Challenge
The classic Easter egg hunt has been going on forever. Kids love to wake up and turn on their ‘detective senses’ and find those hidden eggs around the house. The Easter Egg Hunt could also be an extremely fun game for adults. If you have few friends and family members coming over for Easter celebrations, try this fun game.
The rules are the same for adults as they are for the kids with just one little exception. Introduce your delicious Easter cocktails to the adults before they begin their ‘search’ and see how interesting and fun this game becomes.
3. Egg Truth Or Dare
Now if you have some close friends who are living away and can’t make it to your place and you all would still want to celebrate Easter together? This is the perfect game for you. Organize a Zoom call with your friends and get them all to write some ‘truth’ questions and some ‘dare’ tasks on a piece of paper and place them inside some plastic Easter eggs.
You would write the ‘questions and dares’ for your friends and they would write it for you. Each individual would choose the ‘plastic egg’ for the other players.
If the player chooses an egg for someone and that person wants to avoid or pass that task, they wouldn’t be allowed to choose for that person again. Either do the ‘dare’ or answer the ‘truth’ else take a shot.
(Note: The shot could be both alcoholic or non-alcoholic according to your preference)
4. The Messy Egg Toss
This fun game can be enjoyed by both adults and kids. If you have a small backyard, you can enjoy this game even with your friends while maintaining social distancing.
Players would stand across each other and throw a raw egg back and forth. After each throw, the players would move one step back. This goes on until one of them breaks the egg. It may be messy but you’ll have some amazing pictures and a memorable Easter celebration.
5. Twisted Easter Egg Hunt Challenge
This one involves both parents and kids. You could even play this if you don’t have kids (couple’s version). This game turns the tables as kids would hide the Easter egg and parents have to do the hunting. But there is a little twist.
Kids could write gift requests or favourite dinner lists and so on inside the Easter eggs and hide them all over the place. Whichever ‘request’ parents are unable to find; they have to agree to that request. Fun isn’t it?
Yes, you read that right. Guesstimate. This fun game involves lots and lots of Jelly beans in a jar. Fill a transparent jar with jelly beans and offer a piece of paper to the participants.
They have to guess the number of jelly beans present in the jar. Put everyone’s guess in a separate bowl and at the end of the party count those jelly beans together with your friends and see who came closest to guessing the actual number.
Extremely simple yet fun game. The winner could be offered exciting Easter Gift Hampers which include gourmet and artisanal food and beverages.
If you’re not a ‘game’ person and wish to celebrate Easter in a more intimate but yet creative and fun way? Intimate Easter celebration ideas are just for you.

7. The Easter Piñata
Piñatas are huge among the kids. Kids love goodies, chocolates, candies inside a piñata but it can be interesting for adults too. Just fill in the piñata with more grown-up prizes. Money, mini booze bottles that come in plastic, a few fake moustaches and fake costume accessories to wear till the end of the gathering, you get the idea…
If it’s an Easter brunch or even an evening gathering, as the booze kicks in, your adult friends and even family members would surely have a great time and you would have great pictures!
