My kids absolutely love surprising friends and neighbors by leaving treats on the doorstep, ringing the doorbell, and running as fast as they can to get away before the door opens. We do it throughout the year just for fun, but it’s also a part of some of our favorite holiday traditions, like Halloween (You’ve Been Boo’ed).
Easter is a wonderful time to spread a little cheer, and the perfect time to say “You’ve Been Egged!” It’s our same favorite family activity, with an Easter twist!
It’s so fun and simple to put together, and you’ll not only be touching others’ lives, but making family memories. It’s one of the ways our family can focus on and celebrate the meaning of Easter. We love to do it for a Family Night (Monday nights at our house) in the weeks before Easter, and do a few different families.
Here’s how it works:
YOU’VE BEEN EGGED!
-12 plastic eggs
-candy or other small gifts
-ribbon or twine
-pail or bucket (optional)
-printable tag (download below)
-Fill the 12 eggs with candy or other small gifts. We like to leave one empty, to represent the empty tomb of Jesus, as a simple reminder that He is risen.
-Very quietly (this is the time to be sneaky!), hide the eggs in someone’s yard, then tie the printable tag on to the front door. I like to leave a pail or basket for them to gather the eggs in, but that’s totally optional.
