Get ready for Easter with an extra fun You’ve Been Egged Easter Family Night! It’s the perfect way to spend time together as a family and spread the hope and joy of Easter to your neighbors. It’s really easy to put together with a few simple supplies and the FREE printable tag!
I had a thought the other day and I have been eager to share it with you. What if we used our unique gifts and current season of life to share Jesus and truly be the light of the world that we are called to be? We can be a light right now, with the gifts we’ve been given and the community we have been placed in. That might look like inviting a neighbor over to eat dinner at your table and engage in rich conversation. It may look like delivering a picture lovingly created by your kiddo that loves to draw to the cashier at the grocery store or smiling at someone while you’re out and about. Sometimes it can even look like surprising a family that just moved in with bright and happy Easter eggs and a reminder that Jesus is Risen.
Today I’m sharing a You’ve Been Egged Easter Family Night. It’s the perfect way to get your entire family involved in bringing a little bit of joy and light to your neighborhood.
I’m always looking for ways to show my girls how to encourage and love others and this activity is a perfect mix of that! These are SO easy to put together which makes them perfect to assemble and deliver with your kids. Ready to make some of your own? Here’s what you’ll need!
You’ve Been Egged Family Night Supplies
- You’ve Been Egged printable tags (FREE download below)
- Plastic Eggs (12 per house you’re surprising)
- Candy or small treats to fill the eggs with
- Hole Punch
- Paper Shred (I found this at the dollar store)
- Small Baskets (I found ours at the dollar store)
Once you’ve gathered all of your supplies, you’re ready to get started! First, we filled our eggs with the treats. You’ll need 12 eggs for each neighbor you want to surprise (11 filled and 1 empty). If you’re doing this with your kids, try giving each child a job and creating an assembly line. This was actually my 4 years olds idea and it was absolutely brilliant! It was perfect that everyone had a job and felt included, but the jobs were age appropriate. Some ideas for jobs are: Egg opener, Egg filler, Egg closer, & Egg Tosser (putting the eggs in a basket or bowl).
After you’ve filled all of the eggs, it’s time to get the baskets ready. You don’t need to include a basket, but I thought it was pretty cute. I found the baskets and paper shred at the dollar store, so it ended up being really inexpensive as well!
Once the baskets are ready it’s time to add the eggs. This ended up being a fantastic activity to practice counting. We counted aloud as each egg was added to the basket. I love how learning can happen all the time!
Now it’s time to add the tags. After cutting around each square, we punched a hole at the top and strung ribbon through the hole. I then tied the tags onto each basket. Be sure to download the FREE printable below!

When your eggs are all ready to go it’s time for the fun part—egg hunt delivery! When delivering your fun treat you’ll want to be as quiet and sneaky as possible. Spread the eggs throughout the front yard of the people you are surprising and place the empty basket on their front porch, hang the tag on their front door or leave it by their doormat. Run away as fast as you can.
PS: Be sure to hide the eggs around your neighbors front yard, don’t leave them in the basket like in the image below. 😉
Wouldn’t it also be fun to surprise your kiddos with this one afternoon or on Easter morning? If you don’t have a yard you could even hide the eggs indoors and leave the basket by their bedroom door or on the counter when they arrive home from school. There’s so many possibilities!
I hope that you have a fun time putting this together and spreading a little bit of happiness and the best news of all that Jesus is RISEN with your friends, family, and neighbors. Happy Easter!
