Game Prize Ideas
It would be fun to have a prize or two on hand for the Easter Trivia winner and maybe even the second place winner. A prize that fits the game well, like a small Easter Basket, a Beach Ball to encourage outdoor activity, or even Peeps.
It’s always a good idea to have a few games on hand for when there’s a lull in conversation or you just want to amp up the energy, in the room.
