Play. Party. Plan. recommends this active Easter game for kids.

This Easter game for adults and kids only requires a few household supplies. Each player holds a spoon with an egg on it, and they try to reach a finish line as quickly as possible without dropping the egg. Be warned, though, that things could get messy!
7. Color Matching Game
This game from MakeandTakes.com challenges kids to find plastic eggs in certain color combinations. Prepare by mixing and matching pieces of plastic eggs (for example, one might have a pink top and blue bottom, while another might have a yellow top and purple bottom). Draw and color each mismatched egg on a sheet of paper, and hand the sheets out to your kids. Each child can only find their assigned eggs—if they come across an egg in a different color combination, they must leave it alone!
8. Bunny Hop
For this active Easter game, have participants decorate plain white pillowcases with Easter eggs, bunnies, pretty spring colors, etc. Then they can complete a hopping race, in the pillowcases, from start to finish of a race course.

10. Egg Tapping Game
The traditional Greek Easter game Tsougrisma (τσούγκρισμα), as described by Lemon & Olives, requires everyone to choose a dyed Easter egg to call their own. Then players go around tapping or hitting the next person's egg, tip to tip. If your egg breaks, you're out. If your egg doesn't break, you go on to hit the next participant's egg. Whoever is left standing with an unbroken egg wins and is said to have good luck for the rest of the year.
