The ham leftovers are in the fridge, dyed eggs are peeled, a chocolate bunny is missing it’s ears and the plastic eggs are back in storage. But wait! Keep those eggs out a little bit longer this year and have some family fun.
Start by splitting all the eggs in half. Depending on the ages and abilities of those playing you can lay out 130 or just 10. They can be organized by color or all mixed up.
Under each half put an item. Make sure you always have a matching pair. It can be a paper clip, rubber band, coins, Fruit Loops, jelly beans or anything else you can come up with. Those who find a set get to eat what they find.
A benefit for little ones is the eggs are easier to pick up than the traditional cards. Also the color of the egg helps them to remember which egg had what under it.
Even teenagers have fun when candy is involved.
