Let the Easter games begin!

Beat the Easter quarantine blues with some fun activities to enjoy on Easter Sunday. We have a mix of indoor and outdoor games and activities that will uplift your spirit and put a smile on your dial!

The good old Egg and Spoon Race

All you need are eggs (hard-boiled are the least messy) and metal or wooden spoons for each participant. Race individually or relay-style.

Jelly Bean Guessing Games

This is an easy indoor game for all ages! Fill a jar with jelly beans and ask each family member to guess how many jelly beans there are. Winner (the closest without going over) takes all!

Can you guess how many?

Make an Easter Egg Tree

Here’s a creative and fun activity for kids (or adults!) experiencing Christmas tree withdrawal! Decorate a tree (indoors or outside in your garden) with plastic Easter eggs and any décor, such as ribbons or tissue paper flowers.

Make Chocolate Fondue

Encourage your kids to share their Easter finds with Mom and Dad! Melt down that giant chocolate bunny and mini eggs and dip skewered marshmallows and fruit into a bowl of chocolate fondue. This will also get your kids to consume some fruit on this chocolate-filled holiday.

Chocolate fondue for the win!

Why not have a romantic indoor picnic?

3 Fun indoor activities for couples

1. Couples that cook together, stay together!

The act of cooking with your partner can be a fun, creative and intimate way to bring you closer together. There are loads of online resources for recipes. Why not try cooking something that you have always wanted to try?

2. Romantic Indoor Picnic

One of the top activities for romance is a picnic – but an indoor picnic is even more romantic! Instead of vegging out on the couch together, move the couches aside and lay down a blanket. Put together some cheese, crackers or whatever you have available and enjoy the time together.

3. Make bucket lists 

You will be amazed at how much you can learn about your partner by making bucket lists. Now is the perfect time for reflection and goal planning. Brainstorm all of the things that you have always wanted to do. The things on your list can be anything, from the mundane cake making from scratch, or something as adventurous as bungee jumping!

Character Foldovers

3 Fun indoor activities for kids

1. Indoor Exercise

Are your kids just bursting with extra energy right now? Here’s an idea! Get out a ball, or water bottle filled with water and pass them to each other. How about playing leapfrog? There are lots of online resources for indoor exercises for kids. This will get the heart rate going and those feel-good endorphins will make them feel so much better.

2. Character Foldovers

All you need for this super easy game is paper and pencils, or if you have a printer, you can download our printable foldover game here:

https://www.beyerschocolates.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/04/CharacterFoldovers.pdf

Give everyone a piece of paper or if you’re using our template, give each person a copy. On the top section of the paper, start by drawing the head. It can be a person, an animal or a monsters head – whichever you fancy – it can be as crazy as you like. Then, fold that section back (so that it is hidden). Slide the paper across to the next person. Without looking at the first section, the next person must draw a chest and arms of whatever animal or creature you would like. This section should also be folded back. After this, it is slid to the next person, and they should then raw the stomach and hips, and then on to the last person who then draws the legs and feet. Once all the sections are done – unfold the paper and have a real good laugh!

3. The Why? Because Game

This game is super funny and very entertaining. All you need is a piece of paper and pen/pencils, or you can download our template here:

https://www.beyerschocolates.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/04/WhyBecasue.pdf

Start off with each person writing down a question beginning with “Why” for example “Why do dogs bark?”. Once you are done writing down your question, fold it over to hide it. Pass along to the next person who, without looking at the question, writes an answer starting with “Because” for example “Because the earth is round”. Once done, read out loud for some very funny questions and answers…
