Ready to spread joy this spring season? Just like You’ve Been Booed and You’ve Been Elfed, why not something fun for the spring holiday? Leave this “You’ve Been Egged!” Easter gift idea on someone’s yard this weekend! Read on for the full details so you can start a fun Easter tradition surprise Easter Egg hunt with your family and friends!
I have good news. With this Easter tradition, Egging does not refer to the act of throwing eggs at houses, cars, or people. This is the act of paying it forward with a random act of kindness… no malicious and foolish egging someone on here! Let’s learn more about what does you’ve been egged mean?
What is You Have Been Egged?
Have you ever been boo-ed? If so you will recognize the idea of this Easter activity. You’ve Been Egged is a fun spring tradition to spread the Easter spirit. It’s the act of surprising unsuspecting neighbors and friends with a small Easter egg hunt and fun surprises.
Similar to ding-dong-ditch only by leaving behind a fun treat for others to enjoy. With this cute idea, friends, family, and neighbors leave unsuspected gifts on someone’s doorstep or yard. They ring the doorbell and allow the recipient to discover the Easter surprise. Then, the lucky receiver is expected to pay it forward in a similar fashion to another person in the neighborhood (or group of friends.)
Wondering how you’ve been egged works? Let me explain the supplies and instructions so you too can do this fun Easter activity this spring.
What’s Needed for You’ve Been Egged Gift
You’ve been egged is a fun easter tradition for family and friends. Ready to begin the fun Easter activity? Grab these you’ve been egged supplies.
A few supplies are needed for this fun Easter surprise.

- 12 Plastic Easter Eggs

That is all that is needed. However, you can make a larger Easter gift by adding an Easter basket.
Gift Basket Ideas
For this activity, no Easter basket is needed. You simply need the right number of eggs (12) and the printable set. However, if you want to include a special treat, a gift basket can hold a fun surprise and the “you’ve been egged” door sign. Just lay it on the front porch and ring the doorbell and run.
Ideas for the Easter eggs or an Easter basket gift might include…
- Chocolate Eggs
- Easter Candy
- Temporary Tattoos
- Small Trinkets

The Dollar Tree is a great place to pick up Easter Egg fillers and small goodies.
Now for the you’ve been egged directions.
How Do You Egg Your Friends?
It’s incredibly easy to egg your friends. Once you have your supplies make sure you print extra copies of the “you’ve been egged, we’ve been egged” printable set. This will help your friends pass along the fun.
To play, put your dozen treat-filled Easter eggs together with fun treats, small trinkets, and/or prizes. Grab your copies (and tape if you want to hang the You’ve Been Egged sign on your friend’s door. Alternatively, you can make this you’ve been egged yard sign by taping the paper to a yardstick or ruler.
When you arrive at your neighbor or friend’s house, the goal is to arrive when they are home. Incognito is the key! Quietly create your Easter egg hunt with 12 hidden eggs on your friend’s lawn or front yard. Once that is done, lay down your small easter basket (if there is one) on your neighbor’s doorstep. Then quickly creep up to the house and ring the doorbell or knock very hard. Then run back to your house or car and go. You don’t want them o see you and know who egged their home.
So they can pass along the fun, the directions for egging and passing along the game are included in the Easter printable sign. They will know how to play based on your actions as well as we’ve been egged printable instructions.
First, the printable set reads…
12 Eggs have been hidden in your yard, filled with sweets and treats from us to you! Enjoy the hunt!
The instructions write.
Keep the fun going!
- Place the “we’ve been egged” sign in your window or on your door.
- Fill plastic eggs with a variety of small sweets and treats. Surprise a family member, friend, or neighbor who hasn’t
been egged yet.
Remember to make an extra copy of these instructions & “We’ve been egged” sign for the next participant.
This is fun for the Eater season. If RAKs (random acts of kindness) are your jam, continue the fun in your neighborhood in November and December too. Take a look at the You’ve Been Elfed Christmas and You’ve Been Boo-ed Halloween Printable Set.
Now let the fun begin! Don’t put all your eggs in one basket with your Easter traditions and Easter Egg Hunt ideas. Try something new with an easy you’ve been egged printable. Your kids will love this spring activity.
