You’ve Been Egged! A free printable…

I am so excited about this printable.  I ran across Jacqueline’s blog, Living a Redeemed Life, and she posted about their “Operation: You’ve been egged!”  I loved the idea so much, that I asked her if I could make a free printable to share.  I hope that you participate, I know that I will be doing it this year!  Please check out Jacqueline’s Blog, she has a lot of other great stuff over there too!

This is how it works, print one of these out (download is located below the pictures), and hide 12 filled eggs in a friend or neighbor’s yard (make sure to leave one empty), and tape the printable to their door.  It would be perfect for a Family Home Evening night near Easter time, what a good reminder of what Easter is all about.

  1. This is a lovely idea but also I wanted to point out that ‘emtpy’ is misspelt.

  2. I love this! We will definitely be participating this year! FYI, “empty” is spelled wrong on the printable!

  3. Thanks for the idea. I’m going to use it at our school for the class when they return from break!

  4. I love this! and I loved it so much that I shared it on my blog with one pic and several links back. Thank you for the great printable. http://www.clumsycrafter.com/2013/03/eggcelent-easter-printables/

    Someone left this in my yard without any name, affiliation or anything. It has freaked my family out! We’re not religious, do not have religious friends and don’t find this amusing to say the least! If you’re going to encourage people to trespass on complete stranger’s property and leave this unsolicited and unwanted sign and eggs, you should advise them to leave their name or something identifying who they are and why they left it. The police literally left my house 30 minutes ago after I took out a report because I thought some psychopath was stalking my family (which still might be the case). Then I decided to do a google search and found this. You must not encourage people to do this anonymously. I not only am not amused, but now my entire family is on high alert because we have absolutely no idea of what or who we’re dealing with!

    • I think that someone just wanted to wish you a “Happy Easter” I’m surprised that you took it as a threat. I think you need to lighten up and realize there are lots of things to fear in this world but a note and a couple of plastic eggs aren’t one of them.

    • You seriously contacted the police about this?? Paranoid much? I mean really. It was obviously a church group of some kind, probably as an outreach. You are right that they should have included a name so that (obviously not a not wit like you) you would know what church to join for Easter.

      Your rediculousness aside, this would be a great way to reach out to people in your community.

      Really! ?

    • No where on this post did she encourage people to do this to complete strangers. Calm down. God forbid, someone was just trying to brighten your day. Im not one to push religion on anyone, but it sounds like you and your family could use a little enlightening.

    • Did you call the cops when you got “boo’d” at halloween? Or when tiny children dressed as goblins trespassed on your property and demanded you give them candy?

    • WOW … I bet the police just loved that call. Really, shame on you for making this into something it isn’t. I feel bad for your family… You put them on high alert over another persons act of kindness.

    • Yeah. My first thought when I saw this was that the intention was sweet, but the suggestion to use it with a neighbor was misguided, unless “neighbor” meant “friend or relative who was given a heads-up that you will be sneaking around in application of the yard after dark”.

      I wasn’t going to say anything until I saw your comment, and all the mean-spirited, nasty, tribal things people had to say to someone for having the TEMERITY to be frightened over someone sneaking around your property.

      What do you want to bet that if an atheist stuck a “Maybe there’s no God, so enjoy your spring fertility rite” sign in someone’s yard at night, they wouldn’t be so judgmental if the recipient was scared displeased? C’Mon people, a little aopli golden rule won’t kill you!

      • Just MAYBE the person who put this suggestion up, and those who have followed it, actually live in an area where neighbor also means friend. Obviously you and Spencer Coleman live in a place where that is not at all the case nor do you want it to be. “Sneaking around and trespassing”????? Yes, we definitely live in different worlds. Just HOW hidden were these eggs that it would mean a person was totally sneaking around and trespassing??? It is not fare for people on here to assume that you both live in the same kind of neighborhood as the rest of us but it is also not fare to assume that the blog owner is out to get everyone and scare them to death. I would love a follow up from Spencer as to whether or not the police found anything? We still don’t know who broke into our vehicle and busted out the window. I would love to have these police of Spencers come on out here and help us out. No joke.

    • I don’t think it was intended to freak you out. More than likely just a local church reaching out, but yes, they should have put a name on the back. It could have very well been an acquaintance who wanted to share Jesus with you, with good intentions. I plan on using this with my neighbors….but we all go to the same church and all believe that Jesus has Risen! I would never do this to someone I didn’t know or who I had not approached about the Gospel to start with.

    LOVE THIS! Going to do it to many neighbors! I would like to make the sign a giant yard sign but I can’t seem to find the font you used for EGGED-can you share so that I can create this sign on a larger scale!

  7. Lisa Jeppson says:

    it won’t let me read the blog without an invite Not sure how to get one. I would like to read the details if you could email them to me that would be great. Thanks.

    • Jamie Lilly says:

      I’d really like to check out the blog you mentioned as well but it’s closed so I can’t request an invite. Any idea how I could get the details as well?
      Thanks!

  8. Thanks for the free download! I’m using this super cute idea for our church! We’re starting on 3/24 and hoping to pass it to our whole congregation by Easter. Super cute!

  9. Corrie Cummins says:

    @Spencer, I’m sorry that this freaked you out. And it’s really sad that we live in the kind of world where we don’t trust gifts left kindness in our yards. But, I’m really sorry that people on here have found a need to openly mock that and you, especially since this is an Easter project.

  10. Lindsay Loucks says:

    @Spencer, I’m sorry for the harsh and unloving words towards you on this site regarding your response to being egged. I am sorry this was not a blessing to you and your family, but instead stirred up fear. Surely this wasn’t the intent of the egger, but I will be signing my “egging” with my address in my neighborhood. I appreciate your warning as it could be concerning to others as well.
