Easter Tag


Easter tag is a fun game that is sure to tire out the kids. It’s played the same as traditional tag except everyone must hop like a bunny, if you don’t hop then you’re automatically it. If you want to make the game more challenging, implement the link rule. As players get tagged, they must link arms and form a chain, but don’t forget you must hop!

Egg Racing


Yes, that’s right, egg racing! All you need to do is choose an egg, which you can decorate, then find an inclined surface, place your eggs at the top, and watch them roll to the finish line, whichever egg crosses the line first wins.
