I love Minute-to-Win-It games. They don’t require a lot of supplies, they are short, easy to do, and always good for a few laughs!
If you are looking for something fun to do with your family this Easter, you have come to the right place!
Here is a list of supplies you will need for these games (most of which can be found at your local dollar store).
- Lots of colorful plastic Easter eggs
- Painter’s Tape
- Several inexpensive Easter baskets
- Bunny PEEPs candy
- Plastic spoons
- Easter grass
- Panty hose
- Baby carrots
- Easter-colored M&Ms
- Small plastic cups
10 Easter Minute-to-Win-It Game Ideas
Egg and Straw Race
Have your child use a straw to blow an empty plastic egg a certain distance. Mark the finish line with painter’s tape. Or instead of a straw, you could have players roll the egg to the finish line using only their nose.
Egg Color Match
Take 20 plastic colored eggs and separate each one from its other half. Mix up all of the halves evenly between 2 Easter baskets. Have children race to see how many eggs they can match and put together in 1 minute.
You will need 20 plastic colored eggs and separate each from its other half. Have your child see how many egg halves they can stack in a tower in 1 minute.
See how many bunny Peeps you can stack (without falling over) in one minute.
PEEPs in a Nest
One player holds a bucket or Easter basket on his head. The other player tosses as many PEEPs as she can into her teammate’s bucket in 1 minute.
Jelly Bean Scoop
Put a bunch of jellybeans on the table. Give each player a spoon. Players must see how many jellybeans they can scoop off the table and into an Easter basket using only the spoon AND with their other hand behind their back in 1 minute.
Fill an Easter basket with lots of Easter grass. Hide lots of jellybeans in the grass. Players must see how many jellybeans they can find and put in a bowl in 1 minute. Players can only take out one jellybean at a time.
Face the PEEP
Put a PEEP on each player’s forehead. The player must move the PEEP to his/her mouth using only his/her face muscles in 1 minute or less.
Two baby carrots (Easter Bunny’s favorite snack!) are placed in the ends of the legs of a pair of pantyhose. Using only their hands, players must inch their way down the legs to retrieve the carrots and pull them out. Each arm must work independently and the player cannot use one hand to stretch or hold the hose for the other.
Using one hand and picking up only one candy at a time, sort Easter-colored candies (M&Ms or jellybeans) onto separate plates for each color.

These are awesome and simple! I’m doing games for my daughter’s Easter party today (2nd grade). Another class mom sent me this. Then I saw your face and name at the bottom of the page. Small small world! I hope you are well! I always enjoyed our laughs in high school! I can tell you are still sweet and amazing as always! Thanks for the great ideas!
These are great game ideas for older kids. I will be doing them this year for Easter!
