With just 6 days left until Easter, many of us are planning what to serve or bring to the big dinner, along with the extra touches that make our holidays memorable.

From Jelly Bean Trees to a Giant Deviled Egg, we’ve got you covered!
Easter Egg Pass with Ball
I came up with this Easter Egg pass for my daughter’s Camporee last spring. The Camporee theme was “Sisterhood.” I wanted to emphasize team work when doing the egg pass activity. The girls had a blast trying to keep the ball between them without touching it with their hands – SCORE!
I set up the Easter Egg pass in a small parking lot with the starting line at either end. We handed out the mesh strainers and plastic eggs before starting. The girls paired up with their buddies. Originally, we had 2 pairs going at the same time until one of the balls was popped. Since it was a windy day. myself and another adult volunteer walked with each pair. We were able to catch the ball before it blew away.
- plastic Easter eggs
- Mesh Strainer (I found a pair at my local dollar store for $1)
- 14 to 16 inch ball (Mine came from Target)
- Starting Line
- Finish Line
Once you’ve set up the starting and finish lines, pair up the kids. You can set up the egg pass with 2 pairs racing each other, or have one pair go at a time. Either way, it’s a challenge carrying the ball and the eggs in scoops, all without dropping anything.
The girls at the Camporee found that having a partner with the same height worked the best. Some girl pairs talked the entire time. Others just stayed focus on each other. The slower the pairs walked, the easier it was to control the ball.
Save this idea for summertime fun! Have the kids try to carry spoons filled with water across the lawn while holding the ball between them. Or put filled water balloons in the spoon for some wet fun!
