2. Egg Relay Race With Spoon
This one is sure to get everyone into the spirit of Easter and have a lot of fun on this day. Team members have to carry raw or hard boiled eggs (go with the raw ones if you are daring enough! ) on a spoon. One member will transfer the spoon to another member after walking through pre decided distance.
The first team to complete the task without dropping the egg emerges as the winner. Even grown-ups will enjoy this game immensely and you can easily put it into your list of Easter games for adults.

4. Nose Nudge The Egg or Egg Rolling
Egg rolling is a popular game even played at the White House every year on Easter Day. This is one of the best outdoor easter games for kids as well as adults. All you need is some hard boiled eggs according to the number of people in your party. Paint these eggs in order to differentiate them with one another.
Now give an egg to each guest and put a white egg at some distance in the center. Everyone has to roll their eggs towards center using only their nose! Keep your camera ready as you would want to capture everyone trying to nudge their eggs with their nose!
5. Toss The Egg
This is a fun Easter game for kids as well as adults. Divide people in your party into teams with two partners each. Give each team a raw egg and make them stand in front of each other at a gap of about 2 feet. On the sound of the whistle, one person from each team has to toss the egg towards the other team member.
Any team which drops the egg is out from the game. In the next round, increase the gap between team members and repeat the egg tossing process. The team that stays with their egg till the end is declared as the winner!

If you’re a grown-up it might be already hectic for you to prepare for Easter holidays as you fill Easter baskets with candies, chocolates, and gifts for your kids.
