You’ve been Egged! A Spring Service Idea


A Spring Service Idea For Your Family! 

Springtime is here and Easter is around the corner! This spring-time season, consider starting a new family tradition that is all about serving! “You’ve Been Egged” is a quick and easy service activity that you can do as a whole family! Egging your neighbors is now something that will bring a smile to their faces!

You've Been Egged Service Idea

Some of my favorite memories as a kid were doing secret acts of service for neighbors. My mom always had us kids doing the 12 Days of Christmas to a neighbor in need and Heart Attacks to someone who could use some cheering up. Now I have a new Easter service tradition to add that I recently learned about: egging your neighbor’s house. Only this type of egging will leave everyone smiling!

We have made egging your neighbors simple with these bright & cheerful printables created by our Diva Designer Kristin at CdotLove. Kristin completely made my vision come to life with her gorgeous designs!

Here Is What You Do:

Start by filling an egg carton with colorful plastic Easter eggs.

Fill these plastic eggs with yummy Easter treats such as jelly beans or my personal favorite – cadbury mini eggs! You could also fill the eggs with small notes expressing appreciation and love.

Next, add our clever poem that explains to your egging recipient what is happening!

Finally, close up your egg treats in the carton and attach the “You’ve Been Egged” Printable to the top of the egg carton.
