This Easter before you enjoy that decadent meal, why not try out some or all of these games with family and friends! Don’t forget to purchase your artificial turf from Artificial Grass Recyclers then you want to try the following games.
1. Bunny/Chick Bowling – Use a stencil to carve your own or purchase wood shapes in the form of bunnies or chicks. Attach these to wooden stands and paint to look like a bunny or chick respectively. You could also use empty cans, jars or bottles painted in different spring colors. Use a giant plastic egg that has been weighted inside or paint a volleyball, soccer ball or beach ball in pastel colors to use for a ball.
2. Ring Toss – Use any spring yard decorations you can find. At Easter, bunnies are plentiful. Place the yard decorations into a flower pot. If you have artificial turf, do not put the yard decorations directly on your lawn because this will ruin the turf. Buy rings that you know will fit around whatever yard decoration you buy. Let the kids and family have a blast throwing these rings from a distance and trying to get them around the decoration.
3. Pin the Tail on the Bunny – Find a poster of a bunny to hang up somewhere in your yard. If you are good at drawing, then draw your own on a large piece of paper. Buy some white pom poms, cotton balls, or make your own pom poms from yarn. Attach tape or a glue dot to the back of each tail. Blind fold each participant prior to taking their turn and turn them around three times. Let go and guide them to the poster. Have them place their tail where they think it should be. Closest to the actual spot wins.
4. Egg Hunt – Get outside and hide eggs before your guests arrive. Have the kids search the lawn for the eggs. You could even give them all a cute basket to collect their eggs in and allow them to have it as a souvenir. Its best to use plastic eggs for this.
5. Egg Toss – This is a must if you want to see your family get messy and have some laughs. First, have participants partner up. Next, give them a raw egg. Have each set of partners stand back to back and take 10 paces forward then turn around. The person with the egg in each pair then throws the egg to their partner. If their partner catches it, they take a step backward. If they miss, they are out of the game. Be sure to clean up the mess immediately with a hose to avoid damage to your artificial turf.
6. Teaspoon Race – Have each participant grab a teaspoon and put a raw egg on it. Then mandate a start and finish line. On go, participants walk from the start to the finish and back again to win the race while balancing the raw egg on the end of their spoon. You could also perform this with partners as a relay. Again, if an egg breaks, clean it up immediately to avoid damage.
