Food-Based Game for Easter Party
I was with my child in Arizona last year when she had just turned four. Her pre-school had decided to hold a small Easter party separate from the other children, so I volunteered, along with three other mothers, to come up with some games to play.
There were about 13 kids in total (it was a small school district), but we had more than enough trouble keeping them all occupied. The other two ladies brought very traditional games for the age group, but I decided to spice things up a bit.
Though it was a bit devilish, I used a food-based game that incorporated an artistic component. I dismissed chocolate eggs in favor of cupcakes, which are more visually appealing to kids 5 and under. That was the prize: a delicious morsel of cake.
But to get one, they had to first make up original songs, individually or together, about what they thought easter was about. The kids enjoyed working together for the cupcakes so much that they almost ignored the other games.
My daughter, however, brilliant as she is, came up with the idea of putting the same idea into the other two games. Everyone came away satisfied and quite taken aback by just how creative pre-schoolers can be when they put their minds to it.
