Egg Games
  In Zurich, Switzerland, children carrying Easter eggs meet in the Square. A competition is held to find the hardest egg. Some dye their eggs, other leave them plain. One contestant holds the egg with the end pointed and waits while the opposing contestant attempts to crack it with the pointed end of another egg. The positions are reversed while the contestants test the flat ends of the eggs. The winner takes the egg which has both ends cracked.
Coins and Eggs
  Another game is played with coins and eggs. This is called Eiertutshen. A coin is thrown at the egg in order to break it. If the coin does not stick in the egg, the money is lost. If it does, the thrower wins the egg. Some children swap eggs to find the ones with the hardest ends.
Egg Rolling
   Egg rolling is a traditional Easter custom still practiced in northern England. It usually takes place in Easter Sunday or Monday. People roll hard-boiled coloured eggs down hills until they are cracked and then eaten. Sometimes this is a competitive game, the winner being the player whose egg remains undamaged for the contest, but mostly it is played for fun.
  In Yugoslavia, the Ukraine, and Russia, eggs are rolled down a tilted board. If a player rolls an egg down the board so that it collides with an egg on the ground at the end of the board, that player collects both eggs.

Easter Egg Hunt
  Another game which is very popular with children is the Easter Egg hunt. If you don't wish to use chocolate Easter eggs, have the children decorate hard boiled eggs themselves or if they are too young decorate the eggs, have some eggs pre-decorated and hide them in the play area inside or outside. Parents can also participate by bringing in eggs as well.
