Crowd-sourced navigation app Waze has got a neat little idea for this coming Easter: little eggs you can drive over while using the app for points (three per egg!) and bragging rights.

So, as you drive down the street, headed to the grocery or picking up the kids, you can maximize your route to get as many egg points as possible.

This fun little promotion is happening now (it started last week) and will last through April 5.

The entire Waze map will fill up with Easter egg goodies. If you want to see your score, simply tap Menu, then tap My Waze, and then tap Scoreboard. Want to turn them off? Egg getting in the way of safe navigation? Turn them off with a trip to Settings, Display Settings, Show On Map, and then toggle Road Goodies to OFF.

Simple, easy, fun. We love it.

If you don’t already have Waze, maybe now is the time to grab it (it’s free!) for your own iPhone or Andriod smartphone.
