Hopping into Fun: Top 10 Easter Activities for Preschoolers

Easter is a joyous time filled with colorful eggs, fluffy bunnies, and delightful treats. It's a time when families come together to celebrate new beginnings and cherish traditions. For preschoolers, Easter brings a sense of wonder and excitement as they embark on fun-filled activities tailored just for them. This blog will explore ten exciting Easter games for preschoolers that will spark their creativity and imagination.

10 Easter Games for Preschoolers:

  • The Classic Easter Egg Hunt: No Easter party is complete without this timeless favorite. Hide colorful plastic eggs filled with treats around your backyard or designated area. Let the little bunnies loose and watch their excitement soar as they discover hidden treasures. For an extra challenge, hide some golden eggs with special prizes inside.
  • Egg and Spoon Race: This timeless Easter game for preschoolers is a fun test of balance and coordination. Give each child a spoon and a plastic egg (hard-boiled eggs work, too, if you're feeling adventurous). The first one to reach the finish line without dropping their egg wins! This game can easily adapt into a relay race for even more energetic fun.
  • Pin the Tail on the Cottontail: This Easter twist on a classic party game will surely bring joy to the kids. Draw a large picture of a bunny on a piece of paper, leaving the tail off. Blindfold the children one by one and spin them around. Each child gets a chance to try and pin the tail on the bunny in the right spot. The closest guess wins.
  • Bouncy Bunny Races: Preschoolers will love hopping and bouncing their way to victory in this energetic game. Divide the children into teams and have them hop across the finish line like bunnies. Use beanbags or decorated socks tied to their ankles to add a hopping challenge.
  • Nest-Building Frenzy: Test those fine motor skills with a nest-building competition! Gather shredded paper, colorful construction paper cut into strips, and plastic bowls. Set a timer and see which team can build the sturdiest and most creative bird's nest within the time limit.
  • Peeping Chick Relay Race: This adorable relay race is perfect for little legs. Divide the children into teams and line them up. Place a basket filled with plastic chicks (or ping-pong balls) at the starting point of each team. On your mark, get set, go. The first player from each team must use a spoon to carry one chick at a time to a basket placed at the other end and then return empty-handed. The first team to transport all its chicks wins.
  • Decorate Your Eggstraordinary Eggs: Let your little Picassos bring out their creativity with an egg decorating station. Hard-boil eggs beforehand (ensuring they are cool to the touch) and provide an array of safe, non-toxic paints, markers, glitter glue, and stickers. Preschoolers will have a blast designing their own unique Easter eggs.
  • Playful Bunny Hop Sack Race: This twist on the classic sack race adds a touch of Easter cheer. Decorate pillowcases or large fabric bags to resemble fluffy bunny bodies. Have the children climb into the sacks and hop to the finish line. The first bunny to cross the line wins. 
  • Pin the Carrot on the Bunny: Another fun twist on a classic party game. Draw a large picture of a bunny holding a basket on a poster board. Cut out carrots from construction paper and attach them to each player's blindfolded back. The player closest to pinning the carrot in the bunny's basket wins.
  • Sensory Play:  Digging for Easter Eggs: Fill a plastic bin with colorful Easter basket filler (shredded paper, packing peanuts, etc.) and hide plastic eggs with small toys or treats inside. Blindfold the children (optional) and let them dig their hands into the bin to discover hidden treasures.
