“You’ve Been Egged”

Have teenagers?

This has become a fun tradition for my teens.

We choose five or six families, elderly, and/or friends to hide eggs for on Easter weekend. The trick is to hide them without the homeowners knowing we’ve been there. My teens should apply for spy jobs they are so good at it.

Then we leave this awesome note (found at fabnfree.com) on their door knob to be discovered Easter morning. If the receiver is someone who doesn’t attend church we make sure to include an invitation to ours on the back. It makes for a fun family night and keeps our teens involved in some of the Easter fun!

It’s a basic and simple idea that teens may, at first, roll their eyes at. But once they are in the middle of hiding the eggs in daylight with families sitting in the front room watching television, curtains blowing in the breeze of the open windows, they see the challenge. Question is, “Are they good enough not to get caught?”

Try it!
