. you’ve been egged! .

(Thanks Mikaela for this idea!)

Tonight for youth group, we ding-dong-ditched…Easter egg chocolates!
We went to three houses, hid 12 Easter egg chocolates in the yard, put this sign on the door, rang the doorbell (or knocked), and ran.

They were supposed to be stealth, but it’s hard to keep 11 giggling teenagers quiet!

Look at that! You’ve just been EGGed!
But do not be alarmed.
We came, we dropped, we ran away…
Your house, it was not harmed.

So what is this before you now?
Just an early Spring surprise.
Be quick and look around your yard…
Twelve EGGs lay in disguise.

A secret friend has just dropped by
To share some spring time cheer.
So now you’re it! It’s now your turn
To Egg a house that’s near.

Select a friend, or two, or three…
Gather a dozen EGGs for each.
Be sly and hide them, knock, and flee!
Leave this message at arm’s reach.

Hang a poster at your door
And now your task’s complete.
Days ‘til Easter aren’t much more…
Aren’t surprises sweet!

We hope the families had fun with our little surprise. My apologies to the family who’s eggs were not so much hidden as thrown in their yard. Somehow 11 teenagers didn’t quite get the concept…

Yay! I'm so glad you did it. It looks like fun. We've scouted out our 3 friends that we'll be hitting tonight!
