Decorate the track with Easter-themed designs such as bunnies, flowers, and eggs. Set up obstacles, ramps, or tunnels if desired. Each player decorates their Easter egg and chooses a starting point at the beginning of the race track.
How to play the Easter Egg Roll game
On the count of three, players start rolling their Easter eggs down the race track using only their breath to propel the egg forward. Players can’t touch their egg with their hands or any other objects. The first player to cross the finish line wins.
- Relay race – Divide players into teams and have them race to the finish line, taking turns rolling the egg. The first team to get all their players across the finish line wins.
- Obstacle course – Add obstacles to the race track such as cones, jumps, and tunnels to make the race more challenging.
- Egg balancing – Instead of rolling the egg with their breath, players must balance the egg on a spoon and race to the finish line without dropping it.
- Egg toss – Pair players up and have them toss their eggs back and forth over an increasing distance. The pair that tosses the egg the farthest distance without dropping it wins.
- Egg hunt – Hide the Easter eggs around the playing area and have players race to find them. Once all the eggs have been found, players race to roll their eggs to the finish line.
