Before the big Easter egg hunt, plan a game or two to round out the party. If you're brave enough to risk a little mess, play the Egg on a Spoon game. You'll need raw eggs and tablespoons. Pair up the children and have them walk with eggs on their spoons to their partners. Call out instructions such as, "hop on one foot," or "crawl to your partner" to insure there will be some fallen eggs! The last team with an unbroken egg wins.
Play an egg toss in the spirit of "Hot Potato." Children stand in a circle and pass an egg around while music plays, and when the music stops, the child holding the egg has to sit out. Last one with the egg is a ... well, not a rotten egg, because he's the winner, but you get the idea!
