Sooo I'm a tad late with my post about our Easter activities...
Sorry 'bout that.
Early in March I was in charge of planning an Easter Minute to Win It for the youth in our ward at church.
We split into two teams & I wrote the name of the mini-games on the board.
I had searched the Minute To Win It site for ideas that I could twist into an Easter theme
& these were the ones that I decided on (although there are plenty to choose from):
We used the same distance requirement of 5', but used plastic Easter eggs instead of ping pong balls & a plastic Easter bucket from the dollar store. We turned it into a two person mini-game by having one person hold the bucket on their head behind a taped-off line & another person from their team throwing the eggs from 5' away into the bucket on the other person's head. We had each team doing this at the same time.
We did this mini-game one team at a time & followed the actual rules except for using plastic Easter eggs instead of raw eggs.
We had each team playing this at the same time & followed the rules except for using plastic Easter eggs instead of raw eggs.
We used store-bought springtime frosted mini sugar cookies & had each team playing this at the same time. We followed the rules but only required them to get one into their mouth.
We had each team playing this at the same time, but used plastic Easter eggs instead of real ones. You would think that the groove from the Easter eggs would make it easier to carry from one soda bottle to the other, but neither team succeeded in the minute time limit.
We did this mini-game one team at a time & used jellybeans for the candies.
We played this mini-game one team at a time, used a plastic Easter egg instead of a raw one, & started out with them holding the tray rather than using the tables. Somehow I missed that part of the rules when I read through it. This was probably the easiest mini-game that they played.
We played this mini-game one team at a time & used plastic Easter eggs instead of ping pong balls & a medium-sized box instead of a laundry basket. We found that the 15' was quite difficult, so we moved it up a few feet. We also found that it was really hard while the box was stationary so we allowed another team member to move the box around as long as they stayed behind the new boundary line.
As you can see, we changed things up a bit to fit the Easter theme...
I think we had about nine youth show up that night, so most of them got to participate in 2 games for their team. We let the winning team of each mini-game pick the next game.
It was a lot of fun!
While writing this post, I found an awesome link to more Easter Minute to Win It ideas...
I may have to try some of those next year!
Don't worry... I haven't forgotten about Oswald.
I've just been kinda busy & side-tracked lately.
I'll have a post up about that soon!
