Egg Spoon Race
Kids love a physical challenge, so the Egg spoon game is the perfect activity for the Easter Holiday. This game provides a challenge without it being too difficult. So here are a few egg race ideas that you and your family can do:
Basic race: Start by either walking or running from one location to another while still holding the spoon with the egg sitting on it. The winner is the first one to get to the finish point without losing or breaking the egg.
Relay race: Set up two teams with at least two kids on each side. Set up a start point and an endpoint. Position the first two kids up at the start and the other ones at the finish point. Begin with the first kid's race to the finish point. Then they will give off the egg to the next kid, the first group to finish the race wins!
Obstacles: Add a few obstacles to the race. Something easy is better – a jump rope for the kids to step over, cones to loop in between.
Easter can be a fun filled holiday for both parents and kids!
