Make use of your empty egg shells and decorate them to use as Easter decoration! This can be done from empty boiled egg shells. Firstly, ensure you only cut off a small part of the egg shell on top.

You may want to finish off by placing them in a small basket and decorating that too! Check out this video for creative ideas – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bjpWM6ds6K0.
2. Mini Eggs Count Champ
This is an easy activity to do and will bring the competitive edge out of everyone! Simply put a large amount of mini chocolate eggs in a clear jar and get everyone to guess how many mini eggs there inside. Whoever has the closes number is the winner and gets to keep all the jar contents! Tip – mini eggs can also be replaced with jellybeans. This would be great to introducing an extra layer to the game by getting everyone to guess the flavour of the jellybean by eating it with their eyes closed.
