Doing our very first Glow In The Dark Easter Egg Hunt last year was the highlight of all Easter themed activities for my son. To say he was excited was an understatement. He was elated to think the Easter bunny had snuck by at night to hide eggs that GLOWED.
We started by prepping the eggs before it got dark (day before ideally). It will take a while to assemble so be sure to give yourself advance time. We did the hunt at my parent’s house and Mema was able to assemble them in secret before we arrived.
To make the glow in the dark eggs you will need size large plastic Easter eggs and flameless tea lights (see link to purchase items below). You need one tea light for each egg. Once you’ve decided how many eggs and children will be on the hunt, assemble your eggs and be sure to turn the tea lights on before hiding.
Once assembled have your Easter bunny hide the eggs outside. Be sure to have a basket or bag ready for the children to collect their eggs. Here is my son with glowing eggs during his hunt.
An additional hint is be sure to count the number of eggs before hiding them, and be aware of where they were hidden in case your egg hunter has trouble. Sometimes the Easter bunny forgets, eggs get left behind, and lose their glow come morning.
