The Easter Egg Bowling rules
You will need some prep time to hard boil and color some eggs so be prepared to do it before your guests arrive, or if you’d like, your guests can color their own hard-boiled eggs for this game since they each have to have their own color and that way they will even know which one is theirs!
First things first though. You are going to want to make sure you boil enough eggs for each party guest to have at least one hard-boiled egg plus an additional egg that will be your target egg. You may also want to plan ahead and have a backup egg for every player just in case something happens to an egg and it becomes
damaged and unusable.
Once your eggs have been boiled, then you will want to let them cool enough to be able to safely handle them before you can begin to color them. If your guests are joining in the fun of coloring (and helping with the prep work) then pass out the eggs and begin to color them. Make sure everyone knows that each person’s egg(s) MUST be colored differently so that you can tell them apart during the game!
After the eggs have been colored and have finished drying, you can begin playing the game.
You will place the white hard-boiled “target” egg in the middle of your playing area. Each player is going to take turns rolling their own colored egg toward the target egg, trying to get it as close to it as they can.
In order to win you must be the player whose colored egg has been rolled the closest to the white target egg after everyone has played.
