Easter Game- America
The purpose of this game is to see who can roll an egg the greatest distance or can make it roll without breaking. It is usually done down a grassy hillside or slope. The most famous egg rolling takes place on the White House Lawn. Hundreds of children come with baskets filled with brightly decorated eggs and roll them down the lawn.

Pour hot liquid lead from a spoon into a small bowl and wait till it is hard. Then you have little figures.
This sounds a bit dangerous so you should check with an adult.
Pin the Tail on the Donkey
Draw out the shape of a donkey on a large piece of paper and pin it up on a wall. Make some shapes that look like a tail and put a drawing pin in the end of each. Blind fold a person then turn the around a few times, but make sure that when you stop the person is facing the drawing of the donkey. Now give the person the tail on the pin and see if the person can put it on the right spot! Repeat this with each person. The winner is the one who places the tail closest to the right spot. The prize is something like a block of chocolate.
(This is one of our favourites.) Place a lot of different lollies or candies on a large tray. Give everyone who is playing an empty paper bag and get them to sit around the tray on the floor. Now ask one person to go out of the room. Get one person who is sitting around the tray to point to any lolly and that is now the Wacko lolly for this game. Ask the person outside to come back in and they have to point to one lolly at a time on the tray. If the lolly is not the whacko lolly they put that lolly in their paper bag. If they point to the whacko lolly everyone yells out Wacko! and the game starts all again.
The Chocolate Game
Things you need:
1 block of any kind of your favourite chocolate
1 pair of gloves
You can substitute any of the clothes with choices of your own.
How to play:
Sit in a circle with as many other people as you want. Everybody takes it in turns to roll the dice. When someone rolls a six they start to put the clothes on. When all the articles of clothing have been put on the person starts to cut the chocolate up. They are only allowed to eat one piece of chocolate at a time. Once they have swallowed the piece they get to eat another. While all that is going on the other people in the circle are still rolling the dice. When someone else rolls a six the person eating the chocolate has to get the clothes off and give them to that person. That person then gets to eat the chocolate. This goes on until the chocolate runs out.
Another alternative to this is to take away the clothes from it. Then the person gets to eat the chocolate straight away when they roll the six. It makes it a less challenging game.
Things you need:
Enough chairs for everybody playing minus one
1 Tape/CD recorder
1 Tape with any kind of music on it
1 Person to operate the Tape/CD recorder
How to play:
Before playing arrange the chairs back to back in a line.
Everyone who is playing gather around the chairs. The person who is operating the recorder presses the play button and everybody moves around in a clockwise direction. When the operator presses the stop button everybody sits on the chair closest to them. Because there is one less chair than in the amount of people playing someone doesn't have a chair to sit on. This person is no longer in the game. One chair is now taken out so there is still one chair less than the amount of people. The operator presses play again and the game goes on. This is repeated until there is only one person left. This person is the winner and you can give them a little prize.
