Easter is coming up. Are you a fan of Easter? Will you be throwing a party and need a few ideas for Easter themed party games?
As a child, Easter was a big egg hunt followed by a fabulous easter lunch with the extended family. Now as a mum with two boys, I am faced with personalized Easter egg baskets, special platters to leave the Easter bunny some carrots, a set of family matching Easter pyjamas, bunny teddy bears for the kids and let’s not forget the Easter-themed t-shirts. Talk about overwhelm!
And after all of that, we can’t forget the chocolate eggs. Gosh, it is a lot! Such a lot of excess, sugar and consumerism.
Now I never felt like I was missing out as a child. Maybe matching Easter pyjamas were not a thing because there was no expectation that our parents would post a family picture of us in our matching outfits on Instagram for Easter. Maybe marketers have just had the time to learn new marketing tricks.
Anyway, I think we will keep Easter the same as my childhood. We might even cut back on the chocolate a bit.
I was thinking that since we have quite a few children in our extended family that we could play some fun Easter themed games to keep the kids and the adults entertained. Here are a few that I have come across that seems perfect for an Easter themed party.
