Easter fun is not just for kids is it?
Organise a Treasure Hunt with Easter Eggs
Why not buy some chocolate Easter eggs and hide them in your meeting room? Split everyone into teams and the team to find the most eggs are the winners
Or instead of making a trail that everyone follows outdoors, put together a series of questions in and around your venue:
- How many chimneys are on the house?
- What is the inscription over the entrance door?
- What colour is the garage door?
- How many pillars on the drive?
- How many windows on the north wall?
For each right answer reward with one small Easter Egg showing the letter of a cryptic puzzle or an anagram which tells the team where the treasure is hidden. Or you could put a chain and padlock around a treasure box and the anagram spells out the combination number - ensure they read the combination solution in the correct order or you'll be there all night!
First team to find the treasure box gets a chance to open the box - Easter Eggs of course!
Once the first team have taken first prize you could close the box and have the rest of the teams in order have a go at opening the box.
Chubby Bunny Game
Great game for teens - say "Chubby Bunny" whilst shoving as many marshmallows into your mouth as you can. and still saying the name "Chubby Bunny"
Find an item that you would like to give away as a prize – it should be an item that can be viewed and one that you can ask lots of questions about. For example you might choose an Easter Egg as a prize, so ask questions like:
- How many colours in the foil wrapper?
- Name the colours in the foil wrapper?
- What does the egg contain inside?
- Who manufactured the egg?
- Where was the egg made?
- What weight?
- What colour is the ribbon?
Put the egg on display for 2 minutes and ask your gamesters to view the egg very carefully – no handling and no writing anything down. Then tell them you are going to ask a few questions and would like them to write down the answers. The person with the most correct answers wins the egg!
A Very Simple Easter Treasure Hunt
Here's a great little ice breaker for kids' parties - a very simple treasure hunt that can be themed around your event. Cut out some themed shapes from card in advance - so you might make up easter egg shapes for an easter hunt or Christmas tree shapes for Christmas parties. Mark the back of a few shapes with an X and then hide them around the garden or house. Any child that finds a shape with an x marked on it can trade it in for a prize. Simple but fun!
Collect small containers to put sweets in as a variation.
For more great ice breaker games to use throughout the seasons with adults, children and young people take a look at our Youth, Party and Corporate Collections of Ice Breaker Games. Together they make an indispensible collection of icebreaker games and ideas that can be interchanged between the different ages. We frequently use our corporate games for our own kid's parties!
Valentine's Day Parties
Game 1. My Favourite Things
Prepare a list of questions such as:
- My favourite colour is...
- My favourite kind of music is ..
- My favourite film..
- My kind of holiday..
Get people to pair up and answer the questions on behalf of their partners. Maybe easy if you know each other but quite tricky if you are newly together.
Game 2. Famous Couples
If you're lucky enough to be having a meeting or conference on Valentine's Day give use the famous pairs/couples idea.
Give each person a slip of paper with a half of a famous couple. They then have to circulate to find their partner.
