What are typical German Easter activities?

German Easter Activities

On Easter weekend, many German children try to outdo each other in rolling colored eggs down grassy slopes. The fastest egg wins. They may also knock their egg's pointed ends together ("Eierpecken"), and the child whose egg does not shatter gets the broken egg too. Since lots of eggs are needed for those activities, German families sometimes eat hard-boiled eggs for weeks afterwards. Eggs with green sauce (German: "Gruene Sosse" or "Beiguss") is a post- Easter favorite.
