Easter is almost upon us! Soon we’ll be waking up to brightly-colored Easter baskets and festive egg hunts. After the initial traditions are over, you might have a few sugar-high restless kids in need of a game to play. We at HEXBUG DIY have just the thing. With just a few materials you can reuse an ordinary basket of plastic eggs into a fun seasonal memory game for 2-3 players.
- Various colors of HEXBUG nano bugs ([we recommend six but you can play with as few as three] $4.99 each, hexbug.com)
- 12 pack of plastic eggs ($1.00, Dollar Tree)
- HEXBUG Easter Egg Game Scorecard (you can download this from hexbug.com)
Here’s How to Play:
STEP 1: Download and print out your HEXBUG Easter Egg Game Scorecard HERE.
STEP 2: The left column of your scorecard depicts points ranging from one to six. Assign the colors of your nano to different point values. For example, your blue nano could be worth 2 points, your pink nano may be worth 3 points. Jot down color equated with each point value in the right column, so you can keep track of their worth.
STEP 3: Place each one of your six differently colored vibrating nano and inside individual plastic eggs. Seal the eggs tight so you can’t peek to see the toys inside.
STEP 4: Now mix them up, move them around enough to the point where you can’t remember which color nano is in each egg. At this point you should have a buzzing bunch of Easter Eggs.
STEP 5: Take turns picking eggs and revealing the toys inside. The player with the highest amount of points wins, you choose your eggs wisely!
STEP 6: Share your results! Use the hashtag “#HEXDIY” and tag us in your photo on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter!
