So, I've been thinking. Lots of families around here have long standing Easter traditions. They gather with friends and family to celebrate the season. But maybe you know of one or two that just aren't up to the task this year. Or maybe just someone that needs a little extra TLC. Why not provide a little Easter fun for someone else? It's not that hard and it could just become a family tradition of your own.
Gather some supplies for a good old fashioned egg hunt. I used plastic eggs. You will need twenty-four of them if you are going to use the printable that I am providing. Fill them with jelly beans and other goodies. They don't have to be sweets. You could use small toys or money or whatever tickles your fancy. You could number them if you want to or seal them with washi tape.
Now put them in a festive container. This cute Easter bag comes to mind. Or you could use a fun bucket or a spare basket. Or some bunny britches! You could even add a cute stuffed bunny for good measure if you'd like. You can never have too many bunnies!
Now comes the fun part. You have to be all ninja-like. Gather the kids and explain the procedure. You are going to sneak up on the family you would like to surprise. Quietly hide the eggs in their yard. You might want to go when you know they aren't home or when their blinds/curtains are closed. I would stick to the front yard to avoid dogs and such. When you are done hiding all of the eggs...leave your empty Easter bag (or bucket or basket) on their porch. Be sure to attach a fun tag to explain the fine points of the Easter Hunt Surprise!

Then ring the door bell and run like the wind!
Door bell ditching Easter style! Gotta love it!
