Easter Minute to Win It

I love Minute - to Win It! Who doesn't? So I decided to think up a few simple Easter games my kids could play.

Easter Minute to Win It Games

Also I didn't want to buy a lot of supplies so I used what I had on hand - an abundance of those plastic Easter eggs, two baskets and paper and crayons is all you will need for the following 5 games suitable for toddlers or older children.

Colour Match Eggs


Color Match Eggs

This is a simple one - you will need about 20 plastic eggs and two baskets. Separate them all in one basket and have the child try to see how many they can put together in a minute.

Or you could also use a timer and see how long it takes them to match all of them.

Egg Toss

Plastic Egg Toss

Put all the plastic eggs in one basket and put the empty basket about four feet apart. And mark a line on the floor with painters or coloured tape - you can make the line farther away for older children to make it a little fairer.

And see how many eggs they can get in the empty basket in a minute. If they run out of eggs they can run around and collect all the eggs they missed.


Egg Stack

Plastic Egg Stack

For this game you will need about 20 plastic eggs. See how high you can stack the plastic egg halves in one minute (or until you run out of eggs) but it's harder than it looks.


Bunny Draw

Bunny Draw 


You will need crayons (or pencils and pens) and blank paper. And see how good of a bunny you can draw in one minute. Above is the bunny my 3 year old drew. Mine not pictured.

Egg Bounce

Egg Bounce

You will need plastic egg halves and a basket or container. See how many egg halves you can get in the basket with one bounce off the table (or floor) then into the basket in one minute.

And you might also like these Minute to Win It Games I created using recycled materials and things I found around the house for Earth Day...
