Then do we have something for you!
Because we had so much fun egging on Spy Wednesday, using the You've Been Egged printable that we created a few years ago, we decided to create a similar one to be used after Easter Sunday throughout the Easter season. Please enjoy our Post-Easter Sunday You've Been Egged printable!
Now is the perfect time to pick up plastic Easter eggs on sale and, then, to use them to spread Easter season cheer.
Egging is Easy!
To egg, simply:
- Print out a You've Been Egged sheet.
- Fill 11 of 12 eggs with treats.
- Grab some tape and an empty egg carton.
- Go to the home you want to egg.
- Tape the You've Been Egged sheet to a door or post.
- Put the empty egg carton under it.
- Hide the eggs.
And, of course, don't get caught.
Our Favorite Egg Stuffers
(Note: Affiliate link follows for your convenience. If you click through it to purchase anything, we may receive compensation at no extra cost to you. Thank you.)
To stuff our egg, we prefer to use non-edible treats, like coins, small toys and stickers. We also LOVE allergen-free, packaged goodies like YumEarth Organic Candy Drops.
These tasty little drops pack a lot of flavor in yummy wrapped candies that easily fits inside any plastic egg. Better still they are gluten free, peanut free, tree nut free, dairy free, egg free, shellfish free, soy free, wheat free, corn free and organic! So, we do not have to worry about harming our friends who have allergies and intolerances.
If you'd like to try YumEarth Organic Candy Drops, you can find them at Amazon, at health stores or at regular grocery stores. We have also found them in stock at discount stores, like the Marshalls and TJ Maxx ones in our area, too! When we find them there, we stock up, because not only do we love these hard candies for Eater egg stuffing, but we also love them, and the similar YumEarth Organic Lollipops, as an occasional Sunday treat.
Egging Earlier This Season
This year, when we went egging on Spy Wednesday, we did so in broad daylight. We thought we'd timed our egging excursion perfectly, until we realized that people were home at some of the houses we planned to egg. The surprise was on us then! But, we did not let it stop the fun.
Instead, I put a piece of tape on our egging printable and grabbed an empty carton as the the kids split the dozen eggs between them. Then, we opened the doors of our getaway van and giggled our way quietly about our friends' yards. While I ran up to place the printable and carton on the door, the kids dashed around, giggling quietly to hide eggs. We left the van doors open for a fast getaway and attempted to out of view of house windows.
Not a single family caught us in the act! (And I only snapped a few pictures so I wouldn't get caught due to shutterbug habits.)
It was definitely challenging to be sneaky smile sharers in broad daylight with some families home, but we did it and we had so much fun as we did. My daring little trio was filled with excitement and giggles while prepping the eggs, when hiding them and, then, when seeing thank you notes to anonymous "bunnies" pop up on friends' Facebook pages.
Luke declared, "We have to tell everyone about egging so more people will do it. Then, no one will know who actually eggs them." His wish is my doing. Consider yourself both told about egging and encouraged to spread the fun! Just print out the You've Been Egged note and go.
Happy Egging and Happy Easter Season!
