A game called an Easter egg hunt involves hiding colored eggs of all sizes and shapes in different locations for kids to discover. The eggs can be real or artificial hard-boiled eggs, stuffed with or fashioned of chocolate candies. Both inside and outdoors are possible locations for the game.
In an age-appropriate manner, the eggs are concealed to avoid making finding and retrieving them overly challenging. Easter egg hunts are usually held by churches and schools on a Saturday, a day before, or about a week two before Easter, on such an outdoor lawn, with areas set aside for different age groups so that younger children won't be left out by older kids.
Rewards for finding the most eggs, the most eggs of a chosen color, settlement rewards, surprise rewards, etc. might well be awarded after the game is over. One or two rare eggs frequently include a special gift. Commercial establishments and neighborhood sellers may provide vouchers for a free dinner, etc. that will be concealed within only a few eggs.
Children thought that the Easter hare placed eggs in the meadow, hence the tradition of an Easter egg hunt was born. It was traditional in South German folklore to include extra challenges in the game by hiding them among thorns or nettles in difficult-to-reach locations.

The game of egg rolling is highly widespread in England and is played on Easter Monday. Eggs that have been hard-boiled are rolled down a slope. Each location has its own traditions. The egg that rolls the furthest endures the most rolls, or is rolled between two pegs is the winner. Dolly Madison, a celebrated party hostess in the United States in the early 1800s, hosted an egg roll in Washington.
Additionally, D.C. Dolly Madison was the fourth American President's wife. She encouraged the kids in Washington to roll hard-boiled eggs down the sloping lawn of the new Capitol building since she'd heard that Egyptian kids used to roll eggs against the pyramids!
With the exception of the American Civil War, this remained. However, because of complaints from officials that the celebration was damaging the Capitol grass, the Egg Roll was transferred to the White House in 1880.
