Looking for a fun way to entertain your little ones this season? An Easter Egg Snack Toss is an easy Easter Game for Kids — and it will keep the youngsters active and energized throughout the holiday!

An Easter Egg Snack Toss is an easy Easter Game for Kids -- and it will keep the youngsters active and energized throughout the holiday!

As most of you know by now, I love to keep my boys busy with simple seasonal activities that are quick to pull together. I want to inspire constructive play and a healthy lifestyle, but I don’t exactly have tons of free time to devote to crafting, shopping, and preparation. I think that we’re doing well when I can get everyone fed, dressed, and out the door on time!

So during a season that is notorious for chocolate and pastel-colored marshmallows, I aim to celebrate with my kids in a way that doesn’t further contribute to the mass quantities of sugar that they will inevitably consume. Instead, I get these busy boys up, moving, and fueled with a variety of delicious and good-for-you foods. In fact, holiday-themed activities have become quite the Easter tradition in our house! Last year our Easter Eggs-ercises were a HUGE hit here on the blog, and the year before that we had fun with our Easter Egg Snacks. In keeping with the tradition, I figured that it was about time for yet another Easter Game for Kids!

In my typical fashion, I kept it really simple! That means that you can pull this off on Easter Sunday if you have some downtime after the Egg Hunts, or at any other point during the week when your children need some fresh spring air. With a few minutes of time, you’ll be all set!

I started by filling 9 miniature clay pots with a variety of our favorite snacks from the kitchen. You can use ANYTHING here. The pots seemed like a sturdy option, and they were only $0.99 apiece at the craft store. Large plastic cups, small buckets, or even little Easter baskets would all work well, too.

I added some Easter grass to the bottom of the pots, and then filled them with fresh fruit, organic Horizon Colby Cheese Sticks, organic Horizon yogurt “Tuberz,” and some of my kids favorite pantry staples, including Horizon Snack Grahams,

organic Horizon Peanut Butter Sandwich Crackers,

and Horizon Super Squeeze pouches.

Some cold milk was served on the side — always a treat!

Then each boy selected a plastic Easter egg in the color of his choice,

and they took turns tossing their eggs at the pots. The ultimate goal was to get the egg to land on their favorite snack!

Score!

The two older boys had fun tossing around their eggs and rearranging the pots. Let’s be honest: whenever 4- and 6-year-old boys are allowed to throw anything it’s considered a fun game!

Two-year-old Spencer didn’t have much interest in the actual competition, but he was definitely quick to get involved in the eating part of this game!

I expected each of the kids to pick their favorite snack to enjoy, and then I would clean up the rest. Instead, it turned into a picnic free-for-all!

I believe that Gibbs’s exact words were, “I want EVERYTHING!”…so he started with as many pots as he could hold,

and Casey reached for the Super Squeeze.

Spence snagged his all-time favorite: some peanut butter sandwich crackers,

before pausing to wash it all down with milk.

But they didn’t stop there! The yogurt disappeared,

and so did the cheese!

By the end, every pot was EMPTY (no joke!), and I considered this particular Easter activity an overwhelming success! Wheeeeeeee!

This simple game of tossing eggs at their favorite snacks turned into a great way to get the boys outside, enjoying some fresh air and exercise, while filling their bodies with delicious options that make Mom happy, too! Yet another new Easter tradition that we will return to again next year!

Whether you try this with your own children, with your grandchildren on Easter, or with your favorite classroom full of over-excited little students, I know that they will LOVE the activity as much as my kids do! Have a wonderful Easter, celebrate in a way that makes you jump for joy, and be sure to follow Horizon on social media for even more awesome snack and recipe ideas!

  1. Awesome!
    A fun game the kids could be in charge of
    and set up.

    How does the horizon strawberry milk taste?

    I find a lot of products for kids the most popular favor
    is strawberry but the strawberry flavoring is always
    really phoney tasting.

    We love the Organic Valley Milk Boxes especially strawberry
    but its hard to find in the stores. . .

    Thanks
    Jay

    1. Hi, Jay! I’m afraid that I can’t answer the strawberry milk question very well. 🙂 Other than a small sip here and there, I’ve never really had it myself. My boys LOVE it, though! It’s definitely not as sweet as some of the other brands that you find at the convenience stores — probably a lot more like the Organic Valley version that you like (although I haven’t tasted that kind). Hope that helps! 🙂
