Spring into this Egg-cellent Easter tradition!

If you’re looking for a unique family activity, this “You’ve Been Egged” gift is a fun way to spread Easter cheer to your friends and neighbors. To play, simply bring 6 eggs filled with treats along with this free printable “You’ve been Egged” poem to a friend’s house. Next, have your kiddos hide the eggs and hang this sign on their door.

It’s a cute way to acknowledge neighbors and friends while spreading Easter and Spring cheer. My kids loved to do this when they were younger, and it’s so easy to pull off.

Tips for pulling off a perfect “You’ve Been Egged” Easter Gift Basket:

  • Make it work with your budget by purchasing Dollar Tree goodies like jelly beans, stickers, and small treats. Add some miscellaneous Easter candy and a toy. Such a clever and inexpensive way to have some family fun!
  • I recommend printing the tag on white heavy cardstock so it will be a bit more sturdy.
  • Be sure to hide your eggs, and lastly place the basket and tag on the front door handle. This way it’s a little surprise Easter egg hunt.

The kids get so excited over this simple idea, I promise! If your neighbors have a Ring doorbell, you can always have someone wear a bunny suit! LOL

    Cute! I have the sweetest lady living next door and we just adore her. My kids see her as a grandma. She recently lost her husband so it’s just her in the house. How can I make something like this but geared more towards and elderly person?

    • Kathy

      That is sweet of your family to think of her. I think maybe lottery tickets, hand lotion, chap stick, hair cut gift card, nail clippers, word search books, chic fil a gift card, snacks, fruit basket, pedi cure gift card, a homemade “coupon” to pull or weeds or shovel snow next winter, etc etc. of course these wont fit in eggs, but you could have notes in the eggs that correspond with the “prize/gift. 💚💙❤️

      Also, lap blankets for watching tv.

    A church I used to attend would make Easter Baskets for shut ins. We used many of the ideas listed above. Individual snacks make great treats just do have something different than what they typically have on hand. Small seasonal decor items like a nice smelling soap and hand towel can be great. The baskets always went over very well and were greatly appreciated.

      That is so sweet. Great idea!

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Great idea to add to a basket! Thanks for the suggestion! 🤗💕
