Egg Your Neighbors This Easter!

Keep reading for a fun neighborhood tradition your kids can start!

Egg your neighbors for Easter? Yes! Especially when it involves a fun egg hunt for the kids and a reminder or the true meaning behind Easter. This is a perfect family activity because there is a way for kids of all ages to be involved and it’s a great way to share the holiday with your neighbors!

Here are the simple steps:

1. Create a sign for the door with the following message: 

In your yard are 12 Easter eggs. Eleven are filled with Easter treats. 
One of the eggs is empty, but don’t be sad. 
Be happy when you are reminded of Jesus’ empty tomb and the true meaning of this Easter holiday.
Love, Your Neighbors

Get creative with your sign. Use colored paper, let the kids decorate with crayons, glitter and more!

2. Fill 11 plastic eggs with toys or candy.  **Leave the 12th egg empty**

We also bought fun burlap sacks, Easter grass, and name tags to hang with the sign. This gives the kids a basket to use when finding their eggs. To save money and time, you can skip this step.

3. Tape the sign** to your neighbor’s door and, if you decide to include a basket, hang it on the door, too. Then hide all 12 eggs.  

Since hiding the eggs takes a little more time than just setting something on the door step, you’ll want to find a time when they aren’t home. **Don't forget to bring the tape!!!**

Have fun bringing a tradition to your neighborhood that can be used for years to come!
