Let’s get into the list of Minute to Win It Easter Games!

For each game, you’ll see a short list of supplies, set up or preparation instructions, and directions on how to play.

1.Easter egg match

Set up:

Put the Easter eggs together so the top half and the bottom half colors are mismatched and put them in a basket

How to play:

The player has to quickly pull apart the plastic Easter eggs and put them back together so all the eggs have a matching top and bottom half.

Once all the eggs are put together, the player has to put them back in the basket too.

The person to do this in the least amount of time is the winner, but anyone who does it in less than one minute is successful!

Group variation:

You can easily set up two or more baskets, each with 2 dozen mismatched eggs. Have players race against each other to put the eggs together correctly. The first person to put their eggs together correctly and put them back in the basket wins!

2. Easter Basket Egg Toss

Set up:

Divide players into teams of 2 and give each team one inexpensive Easter basket and 2 dozen plastic Easter eggs.

Have one player from each team kneel on the ground in a shoulder to shoulder line and hold their Easter basket on their head. Their partners stand behind them with the Easter eggs.

How to play:

When the timer starts, the standing players try to toss the Easter eggs into their partner’s Easter basket. The team with the most Easter eggs in their basket at the end of a minute wins!

Age variation:

To make this Easter minute to win it game work for different ages, increase or decrease the distance between the kneeling and standing partners.

at least one marshmallow Peep per player, but extras are a good idea to have on hand!

Give each player a marshmallow peep and tell them to tip their chins up and place the peep at the top of their forehead

How to play:

Players use only their face muscles, movement (and maybe a little gravity too!) to move their peep down their face and into their mouths. No hands allowed!

How to play:

Using only their straws, players must transfer all of the candy from one paper plate to the other in one minute. The person who gets all of their candy moved over first (or gets the most in one minute) is the winner!

5. Easter egg roll


Put a penny in each plastic egg to add a little weight. While this isn’t 100% necessary, it does help the game to go better!

Set up:

Give each player a straw and a plastic Easter egg. Have players line up side by side at one end of a long table or countertop, or on the floor and place their egg in front to them. Designate a finish line.

  • plastic spoons
  • plastic Easter eggs
Set up:

Give each player a plastic spoon. Next, have players pair into partnerships and give each team a plastic Easter egg. Have the partner with the Easter egg stand on one side of the room or yard from his or her partner. (It’s helpful to have all the partners with the eggs on one side, but not necessary).

How to play:

Players place the egg in their spoon and quickly walk, run, or shuffle over to their partner, being careful not to drop the Easter egg.

When they make it over to their partner, they need to carefully transfer the egg to their partner’s spoon.

The partner then walks or runs the egg back to the starting line where the first player began.
