- Hold an Egg Race – Boil the amount of eggs to the amount guests in advance so they have a chance to cool ready to be decorated. Let all the race participants decorate their own egg using glitter, ribbon, paint, buttons etc. Give out soup spoons and let them race to the finish line, the one who passes the finish line without dropping their egg wins.
- Make Easter Cards – Making Easter cards can be really fun and also really affordable. Colouring pencils, crayons, glitter and some paper are just about all you need to make some cute cards. Getting creative is suitable for all ages and the cards are a great keepsake to send to loved ones.
