Fun Activities for Teens on Easter

  • Scavenger Hunt. Instead of the usual egg hunt, send your teen wandering through your home and yard to find hidden clues that leads them to a grand prize (to be determined by the parents). This can be as easy or as complex as you would like it to be. You can also make this a group activity for your teen and his/her friends.
  • Egg Toss. For this activity, you can use boiled or raw eggs. (This can also be played with a group of friends or relatives). Pair everyone off and have the pair stand facing each other at a small distance. Then they will toss the egg back and forth. Whoever drops the egg is out. To make it more challenging, each time the egg is tossed, each person must take a step back. The pair left standing with their unbroken egg wins!
  • Night Hunt. This one seems like a ton of fun! With this activity, you would turn off all lights in your yard making it completely dark. Teens use flashlights to find the hidden eggs in your backyard. If the weather doesn’t cooperate, you can move this indoors. Eggs can be filled with candy or (as one pin suggested, money.)
