Lookie what we’re doing today. I know, eventually we’ll be hunting for colored eggs. But first try playing an Easter egg basket toss game. I promise it’s really fun and anyone can play it. It’s actually so much fun that we almost forgot about the hunt altogether!
Have an adult helper use a piece of rope to hang a basket from a tree branch. Next, fill plastic Easter eggs up with beans or seeds to give them some extra weight. I think using seeds for the garden is an extra great idea because once we’re done with the game we can go plant them. Just be sure to add a tag inside so you know what seeds are hiding inside.
You will want to tape the eggs shut because even if you have brand new plastic eggs, you probably don’t want them to crack open if you miss the basket. All the seeds or beans will spill out and make a mess.
Now it’s time to play! Line up under the basket practice throwing the eggs into the basket. We used two purple flowers to mark where we have to stand. Once you get the hang of it, try swinging the basket. How many can you make?
If you’re still learning your colors, shot out the color of the egg you’re tossing before you throw it!
