These Easter egg games will keep you and the little ones occupied for hours. Discover this fabulous game, designed and created by me so you won't find it anywhere else. I have a nicely finished brightly colored version for you that's ready to go. To add to your fun I've also included a black and white version for you to color yourself.
Not only will it keep the kids occupied for longer you will save on ink too. You will need a die or a spinner which is not included in the game.
I have included tips on how to make a spinner. As a spinner needs a sharp point to spin it won't be suitable for young children. I have also included a safe alternative if you don't have a die handy.
Download the template below by clicking on the thumbnail. All my templates are PDF files as they are easy to use and print.
You will need acrobat reader installed on your computer to view and print these templates. You can download it for free by clicking on the adobe reader button on the right.
Most printers will allow you to print directly on to thin card. If you are using patterned card make sure that you print on the plain side. If your printer will only allow you to print on paper then there are a couple of different ways to transfer the template to card.
One way is to glue the paper template to the card you can use any type of glue suitable for paper. Spread the glue thinly across the card then lower the paper on top. Smooth out carefully removing any air bubbles. Make sure the glue is completely dry before cutting.
The other way will only work if you are printing a template that is easy to reproduce. Secure the paper to the card with tape, using a pencil and ruler if drawing straight lines, go over the lines on the template. Press hard enough to mark the card but not so hard you make holes in the paper.
Print your game out onto card, cut across the bottom of the card to separate the counters.
Carefully cut out the counters or you can use counters from a game you already have.
Start at the top right hand corner of the game, with the light pink egg.
If you land on an egg with a number on it you must move, either backwards or forwards, that number of eggs in the direction of the arrow.
The first person to get their counter to the basket of eggs at the end is the winner.
You can print out the template as many times as you like.
Turn the coloring in into a game and see who can finish theirs first.
Make sure the kids know it's got to be done to the best of their ability as well as quickly.
To make your own spinner cut a hexagon out of cardboard. Make a hole in the center for a cocktail stick.
For younger children cut out 6 circles and number them 1 to 6. Place all of the circles upside down on the table and mix them around. The child can chose one on their turn then mix them up face down for the next player.
