Inside: Hopping Fun Easter Games for Teens + Tweens.
There is just something magical about spring. Maybe it’s the fact that you can be outside for more than five minutes without freezing or that the hours of light are longer or the colorful flowers popping up all over the place. Who knows?!
But the sweet taste of jelly beans and the sugary goodness of chocolate bunnies make this spring celebration one of my favorite holidays.
I love finding the perfect game for everyone in my family. Although Easter Egg hunts and photos with the Easter bunny are great, the older kids don’t seem to enjoy them as much.
This is why I had the best time creating this fun list of Easter games for teens, something for all the kids can play and enjoy. Check out our favorite games for teens!
Easter Games for Teens
Capture the Egg: Get ready for a little friendly competition with this fun take on “Capture the Flag”. Divide all your players into two teams. For this game, you’ll need eight eggs, four each in two different colors. Have each team choose a color and then line up their eggs on their end of the field. Each team must try to capture the other team’s eggs and bring them to their side of the field without being tagged by a member of the opposing team. If a player is tagged by an opponent, they are out. To win, a team must successfully capture all the other team’s eggs or must have the last man standing.
Easter Egg Lawn Bowling: Score major points with this version of bocce ball. Start with a dozen hardboiled eggs (or more, depending on the number of players). Leave one white, and dye each of the others a different color. Gently toss the white egg onto the lawn. Each player takes turns rolling their colored eggs toward the white one, trying to see who can get closest without touching it. For more of a challenge, play with raw eggs and eliminate each player who breaks their egg trying to get close to the white egg!
Popsicle Time: Give each player a little cup filled with Jelly Belly beans and a popsicle stick. When the game starts, players must put the popsicle stick in their mouth and then add Jelly Belly Beans to it until they are balancing six Jelly Belly Beans on the popsicle stick to win.
Easter Activities for Teens
Egg Toss: This game is played like a water balloon toss but with filled Easter eggs. Have one player from each team line up in a horizontal line then have their teammate stand facing them in a parallel line. Give each team a plastic egg filled with Jelly Belly beans. One teammate will toss the egg to the other teammate and they must catch it without breaking it. If they drop the egg or break the egg and spill the jelly beans out of it, they are out.
After each toss, one of the teammates must take a step back and they toss again. The last team to drop the egg wins.
Spring Cleaning: Give each player a bowl full of five different colored Jelly Belly beans such as red, purple, blue, green, and orange, making sure everyone has the same exact number of jelly beans. Place the five cups per player around them in a circle. Players must sort the cup of jelly beans by picking out one Jelly Belly bean at a time and then placing it in one of the cups, designating that cup for only that color. The first player to sort their jelly beans into the five cups first wins.
Spoon Full of Sugar: Set the cups up on a table on the other side of the room. Players have to get jelly beans in their spoon then walk to the other side of the room with the spoon (and jelly beans) in their mouth. No running for safety reasons! Take the jelly beans to the other side and use them to fill their cup. Keep going until the cup is filled.
Fun Teen Ideas for Easter Games
Spring Up: Players must keep three spring colored balloons up in the air. If players can keep them up for more than a minute, start adding an extra balloon per 30 seconds until someone gets out. If it’s too tough, have them try again with two balloons.
Swing into Spring: Give a member of each team a small bouquet of fake silk flowers. Another member of the team must toss a plastic Easter egg from a designated “pitching” line, and the first player must try to hit the egg with the flowers (like baseball). The first player to hit and crack open five plastic eggs with the flowers wins.
Sweet as Spring: Pick out 3-4 spring Jelly Belly bean recipes from this list such as strawberry shortcake, fruit salad, and berry smoothie. Give each team a bowl full of Jelly Belly beans that includes the necessary Jelly Belly beans for the chosen recipes AND other Jelly Belly beans. In addition to the bowl of Jelly Belly beans, give each team a recipe card that has just the names of the flavors (not the pictures) for each recipe they have to “make.” When you say go, teams must put together the correct Jelly Belly bean combinations for the chosen recipes by tasting the Jelly Belly beans in the provided bowl. The first team to make all of the recipes wins.
