Pin The Easter Egg On Peter Rabbit

On a sheet draw a rough-sketch of a good-sized peter rabbit, the regular Easter bunny, standing on its hind legs, and holding his paws as if it were carrying an egg.

Stretch the sheet on the wall and tack it firmly in place. Cut eggs out of different colored foam or felt to represent Easter eggs. The eggs should be as large as the space between the rabbit’s paws. In each egg stick a pin.

Blindfold the children in turn and give each an egg, which is to be pinned on the sheet, and right in “Bunny’s” arms, if possible.

As the children take their turn, no matter how straight on the way they were started, “Bunny” will be surrounded with eggs, until some child pins the egg in his arms. This child deserves a prize.

A side note… at the beginning of the party let the kids decorate his or her egg with glitter, markers, paint (finger paint) or stickers. Use quick drying glue… let dry and then each kid can wear their egg until the game begins giving your party special decorations.

Use the Easter bunny at the top to guide you how to draw Peter….. BUT….. if all else fails you could draw an Easter Basket and see which child makes it close to helping Peter fill his basket.
