Glowing Easter Egg Hunt

Day 4 of a rainy day...I know hiding Easter eggs is a little early, but I was in desperate need of entertaining my little disciples.  Last year, I had a Flashlight Easter Egg Hunt party.  My oldest disciple remembered, so she insisted on doing it again.  So tonight we put on our pajamas, covered the basement windows with a sheet, and got out our flashlights.


We also used glow sticks to put in the eggs.  The kids cracked them while I put them inside each egg.  The larger eggs would have been easier, I'll get those for next time.
Bracelet glow sticks and eggs

Breaking the glow sticks

Folded the glow sticks inside the egg.

Ooh la la!

These were the only good pictures I could take.
It worked great!

    2. Just letting you know that you can get the glow sticks at the dollar store as well. That is where we always get them for our little projects like this.

  4. Thanks for the idea! We did this last night and the kids had a blast. We put coins inside the eggs. @Lacie - you can get glow sticks at just about any dollar store or in the Target Dollar Spot.

  11. This is an awesome idea. I will be getting more eggs to do this with my kids Saturday night, and then I filled 2000 regular eggs for my family and friends to search for on Easter day.

  16. Hi Kaylee! Thanks for the great idea! Last night we had a glowing Easter egg party, the girls had a blast!

    Money saving glow stick trick...after you have finished playing with your glow sticks return them to the freeze. You'll have up to 2 weeks of evening glow stick fun :)

    1. Hey Ginny! Just use whatever eggs you already have. The larger eggs would probably work better, but my "regular" sized ones worked just fine.

  22. Awesome! I wanted to do a flashlight egg hunt for the block but we got sick so I had to cancel. I toyed with the idea of using glowsticks in the eggs so am thrilled to see your pictures and how cool they look in the dark.

    Thanks for sharing!

  23. Hi Kaylee!
    I am in charge of the non-athletic recreation programs for the Charleston Parks & Recreation Department. Your blog and others have inspired me to hold a Glow-in-the-Dark Easter Egg Hunt for teens this coming Spring!! I was wondering if I could have your permission to place your picture of the eggs on our website to help advertise for the program?
    Thanks so much!

  25. Hello -

    I’m putting together a post for my blog with a collection of Easter activities from around the web. I was wondering if I could use a photo from this post.

    I would give you full credit and link back to your blog. I would not be showing my readers how to make these, I would direct them to your blog for that.

    Thanks so much! I look forward to hearing from you!
