2. Play Egg Roll In Your Backyard

When you’re ready for some fresh air, head to your backyard with your family in tow and encourage some friendly competition with a game of egg roll. To play the game you’ll need hard-boiled eggs and spoons. The player who can roll their hard-boiled egg down the lawn the fastest is the winner! But the catch is you can only use the spoon to roll the egg! Want to make it really competitive? Have a prize for the winner such as a week off chore duties, or extra dessert, or simply for gratification — your choice! Don’t know how to hard boil an egg? The Incredible Egg has provided easy step-by-step instructions with a video tutorial included. View that HERE.
