- What's Inside the Egg?: Fill easter eggs with different objects (ex: jellybeans, rice, popcorn kernels, etc.) and have guests shake and guess what each egg holds.
- Decorate Easter Eggs
- Bird's Nest Cookie (2 options): 1. Pipe green frosting onto a sugar cookie using a star tip or multi-opening (grass) tip to make the "nest" and top with Cadbury Mini Eggs*. 2. Frost cookie with white frosting, top with shredded coconut dyed green, and top with mini eggs. *Let's face it- we always need an excuse to buy Cadbury Mini Eggs. Here is a yummy and quick sugar cookie recipe I found that does not require rolling out.
- Easter Egg Hunt Board Game (takes 2 players about 15-20 minutes using all the eggs, so use less eggs for smaller kids)

- Egg Basket: Contestants stand behind a line and try to throw plastic eggs into a basket.
- Easter Matching Game: Print off 10 or so pairs of pictures depicting Christ to use like traditional memory game
- Easter Week:
- Countdown: Here's a great resource in the April 2011 Friend. Read in the Bible each day about Christ's week leading up to the Resurrection. You could hang up a picture each day and keep it up during the week as new ones are added.
- OR you could read all the scriptures at one time and have kids put the pictures in the right order.
