What You'll Need:

  • A Large Piece of White Poster Board
  • A Black Marker
  • Any Colored Marker (optional)
  • Scissors or an X-Acto Knife
  • At Least 3 Plastic Yellow Easter Eggs

Preparation:

Draw a flower shape on the large piece of poster board. If this game is being played by younger children, make sure the center of the flower is about 7" - 8" in diameter. If your guests are older, make the center smaller (i.e. no smaller than 5" in diameter). Cut the center out of the flower. You can color in the flower petals using a colored marker if you wish. Attach the flower to a stake or stick that can be placed in the ground. Make three "bees" by drawing black stripes and antennae on plastic yellow Easter eggs.


At the Party:

Place your flower in the ground, and draw a line about 6 feet in front of it. Line your guests up behind the line. Give the first guest the three "bees." Let the guest try to toss each bee through the center of the flower. Award the guest a small prize, such as a sticker or piece of candy, for each bee he/she gets through the hole. Award a slightly larger prize if the player makes all three bees through the hole. Allow each guest to have at least one turn.

Tip: For older children, place a marble or other small object inside each egg to make it harder to throw a straight line.
