Backyard Easter Egg Hunts = More Backyard Fun

Backyard-Easter-Egg-Hunts-More-Backyard-Fun

You’ll never be bored with this Easter fun in store.

Easter is a great time of year to spend some time with the ones you love most: family and friends. And one of the greatest benefits of living here in South Florida is the perfect weather for backyard bonding during the spring months. So invite over some friends and family and get ready to celebrate Easter with the best backyard fun. Here are some ideas for your Easter egg hunt and other games to celebrate.

Easter egg hunt

The most important element of an Easter egg hunt are the eggs. With so many new methods for dyeing eggs, you’ll need to plan extra time to experiment with your decorations. Whether you decide to do the classic dye, a tie-dye experiment, watercolor eggs, or you write on them with metallic permanent markers (after dyeing), you know you’ll have fun with everyone. After that, bury the eggs around the backyard for the kids to find.

But your Easter egg hunt won’t take up the whole celebration time with your friends and family. You’ll want to plant a few other games to enjoy. Here are some ideas.

Lawn twister

This is a creative and fun game to play with the kids. All you need to do is spray paint the grass and use it as your playing board. Follow the directions from One Good Thing. Use Easter pastels and metallic gold paint for an extra festive touch. Don’t worry, the paint will wash out after a few rains, or you can cut the color out when you mow the lawn. Get ready to twist and shout with the whole family!

Ladder ball

You can buy it, or you can make it. Either way, this affordable backyard ball game is a ton of fun. You can play on teams or versus another player. Throw a tournament while everyone is over and see who is the ultimate ladder ball champion in the family.

Frozen t-shirt race

Speaking of affordable, the frozen t-shirt race is one of the most thrilling backyard games you can play with the family and depending on our warm South Florida weather, it could be the most refreshing game of the batch.

Thanks to A Girl and a Glue Gun, we can all take part in this fun activity this year. And it’s simple! All you need are 4-5 t-shirts. Dampen them with water, fold them up, and stick them in the freezer the night before everyone comes over. Then, choose 4-5 players. Their goal? To unfold the frozen shirts. The first one to get the shirt on wins!

Ultimate frisbee

Grab the family and get the Frisbee for extra fun in the sun. Depending on how much space you have to work with, this is the perfect sport for adults to stay entertained while the kids search the yard.

No matter the way you choose to celebrate this season, be sure to protect your family from the pesky mosquitos that will be out and about this spring. Talk to us about our Platinum Mosquito Protection misting system to keep them away from your backyard fun.
