I absolutely love the tradition of ‘egging’ someone’s house.
If you haven’t heard of it before, no, it does not mean you chuck raw eggs at your neighbor’s windows.
This kind of ‘egging’ is when you take a bunch of treat-filled plastic eggs, head to a friend’s house, jump out of the car, hide the eggs all over their lawn, and then hop back in the car and drive away.
When the ‘egged’ houses’ homeowners come outside they get to be surprised and blessed by the spontaneous egg hunt!
I originally saw the idea and printable over at eighteen25. Then I came across THIS PIN and fell in love with the Jesus-spin that was added to the whole ‘egging’ business. I decided to combine the two ideas and make a fun FREE Printable (based on the same design as the one at eighteen25) for us to use on our ‘egging’ adventures – all while keeping it about Christ!
The other great thing about this FREE Printable is that it specifies 12 eggs. I like the number 12 because it sounds really do-able. You know, if you’ve ever thought about ‘egging’ someone before, you might have chickened out of doing it simply because you had this preconceived notion that you had to do like 40 eggs to make it any good.
Oh not so, my friend! Keep it easy! 12 is all you need!
Plus, the specific number ensures that every egg will be found.
Happy Buddy was very excited about the idea.
We got right to work stuffing our 12 eggs with stickers, mini Easter erasers, my FREE Printable Easter Notes from last year, and even a little bit of candy (be careful about the chocolate candy – you don’t want it to melt. We knew our friends would be home soon after our mission was accomplished, so it was all good.).
And, of course, the empty egg – the most important one!
And still wearing our pajamas – ‘cuz that’s how we roll.
I hung the sign on their door decoration and not directly on their door.
NOTE – When hanging the sign please remember to use an adhesive that won’t peel the paint off the recipient’s door! Happy Home Fairy is not liable for any damaged doors.
Then I set the Happy Buddy loose to hide the eggs.
When we were all done, we high-tailed it out of there as if we were being chased by Farmer McGregor himself. 🙂
I got some great text message photos an hour later when our neighbors got home and discovered the eggs.
The best part, though?
Knowing that we had shared the TRUE meaning of Easter with our friends.
Would you like to ‘egg’ someone in your world this week?
Happy You’ve Been Egged – He Is Risen Style-ing! 🙂
