Family competition time

For those that enjoy a little competition, why not get the family together for some Easter-themed games. The traditional egg hunt and egg and spoon race is always fun. You could even have the kids pre-decorate and dye their eggs before the big race. Pin the tail on the bunny or a bunny hop race are also some suggestions to keep the kids entertained – the adults might even have some fun too!
