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!
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 beansor 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!
This poem plays with the “egg” phrase to explain everything.
Finally, close up your egg treats in the carton and attach the “You’ve Been Egged” Printable to the top of the egg carton.
Now you are all ready to deliver your gift to an unsuspecting neighbor. Take the whole family with you as you sneak up to the home and leave your egg carton full of treats on their doorstep.
Finally, take the printable, decorative eggs and attach them to simple skewers& place these printable eggs throughout the lawn. You can even write personal notes on the back of the eggs sharing your appreciation and love!
Isn’t this fun? This sneaky ‘prank’ is sure to leave a smile on your neighbor’s face and it is a great way to get you and your family giving to others this Easter season. You can get these free printables right here!
