We created this Easter egg Puzzle game last year when we needed a way to entertain kids ranging from toddler to "big kid". We created a puzzle with a riddle on it that would lead the kids to their hidden baskets. Each kid got a few pieces in their hidden eggs and they all had to work together to put the pieces together! It was a lot of fun for the kids, got everyone to work together, and cut down on all the candy. This is now a tradition in our house and we hope it becomes one in your house as well!

What you'll need:

  • Blank puzzle (available at teacher supply stores or craft stores in the invitation section)
  • Blue paint
  • 3-D paint in a variety of colors
  • Foam paint brush
  • Plastic Easter eggs
  • Knife (optional and for adults ONLY)
How to play your Easter Egg Puzzle Game:
  • Break the puzzle pieces apart and then put the puzzle back together. This helps you get the pieces apart easier later after they are painted.
  • Paint the puzzle pieces a solid color (we used blue) and let the puzzle dry.
  • Use 3-D paint to write a message on the pieces (we wrote ours out in pencil first to make sure the words fit the way we wanted them to).
  • Use 3-D paint to put a border on the puzzle (to help kids find the outside pieces easier).
  • Use 3-D paint to add a few decorations to the puzzle. We found it was helpful to the kids to put small pictures on pieces that were otherwise blank that overlapped so that they could more easily put together certain sections of the puzzle.
  • After the pieces are dry, carefully break the pieces apart. If the 3-D paint seems to be pulling off the puzzle, use the knife to cut it.
  • Place the puzzle pieces into plastic Easter eggs. Regular size Easter eggs hold a few puzzle pieces easily.
