You’ve Been Egged :: Surprise Your Friends & Family This Easter


Want to spread some joy this Easter season? One fun way to do so is to “egg” your friends, neighbors, or family members. Imagine waking up and finding hidden eggs–with goodies inside, of course–all over your yard or porch? That’s what it feels like when “You’ve Been Egged”!

My daughter and I “egged” our neighbors last year who have four-year-old twin girls. We could hear their squeals of delight as they discovered eggs all over their yard. But we were probably just as happy at our house listening to them.

How to Create a “You’ve Got Egged” Surprise

Wait until after it gets dark or when they are not home to egg your friends or neighbors. Sneak over to hide eggs in their yard. And make sure to leave them a note. Here’s a printable you can use as your note.

We think it’s a good idea to write down the number of eggs you’ve hidden. Because who wants to find a forgotten egg in June?

This sneaky surprise is sure to bring lots of joy this season.

So if you do get egged, make sure to pass on the fun to someone else. Tag El Paso Mom on social media so we can all join in the fun!
