32 Best Easter Games to Make the Holiday Extra "Hoppy" for Kids and Adults Alike

Traditional egg tosses, scavenger hunts and other fun activities that the whole family can enjoy.

Easter is a time to bring out all the fun and games. And while you may think the day starts and ends with an epic Easter egg hunt, there are a number of other festive activities that'll help you and your loved ones keep the spirit alive long after all the eggs are found. Keep the party going with these incredibly fun Easter games, perfect for toddlers, kids and adults.

We've got a range of indoor and outdoor games for the entire family, everything from scavenger hunts to guessing games. Since Easter, like most holidays, is all about food, most of these ideas will get everyone up and moving to work up an appetite by the time the Easter ham is on the table (or ya know, the candy dish is replenished). But if you'd rather have everyone stay put, opt for a board game or puzzle to put their mind to work instead. Of course, any game is more enjoyable if you know that there's a prize on the other side, so be sure to have an assortment of delicious Easter treats on deck for the winners a.k.a. everyone at the party.
