Glow in the Dark Easter Eggs!! The kids LOVED this!!! { }

Eek, it’s already almost Easter! Can you believe it?

I feel like it was just Christmas yesterday – LOL!

Well, to get crackin’ on this upcoming holiday I wanted to share with you some fun Easter Egg Decorating Ideas this week, so be sure to check back this week for more fun Easter Egg ideas.

Today: Glow in the Dark Easter Eggs

I saw the idea at Mommy SaversΒ and knew it would be perfect for our Family Home Evening Activity.

The kids LOVED it! It is so easy to do and so fun too!


-Plastic Easter Eggs (medium – large size work best)

-Glow Sticks (found in the dollar section at Target, Michael’s, Dollar Store)




1. Snap glow sticks so they are glowing and insert into eggs along with some candy. They can be a little tricky to fit in and close easily.

The easiest thing we’ve found that helps is putting on the connector piece to the glow stick making it a circle, and then twisting it to be two circles and then putting it inside the egg. πŸ™‚

Tape shut and HIDE.

That’s it – Told you it was EASY!

What’s great about these eggs is that are FUN! Even the hubby was temped to go out and find them during the hunt since he thought they looked so cool. πŸ™‚

What a fun idea! I’m going to try and find the short (2″) glow sticks today!

Dezi A

Genius! My 4 year old can’t stop asking me about these and what will happen if someone touches them. πŸ˜‰

    Lil' Luna

    Oh yes, my 4 year old LOVED it. They were totally confused as to why it glowed but loved the hunt and opening it up to find the glow sticks AND candy. Bonus!!


Such a fun idea! I think even my older boys would like these!

    Thanks for sharing, and for stopping by! Hope you have a great Easter! XO


    doesn’t the stuff pour out of the glow stick when u cut it


      You don’t cut them. You kind of twist (crack) them to make them glow.

        DKz Bianca

        glow stick necklaces or bracelets would be what you were looking for

      Lil' Luna

      Yes, you don’t cut it – you just snap the glow sticks so they are glowing and stuff in. πŸ˜‰


This is wonderful idea. I definitely will do it for my grandchildren. Thanks!

Now this looks like a hunt that would be fun to do well past Easter, like on warm summer nights! I’m so excited to try this with my kids!

    That’s a great idea, Janet!! I can’t get over how much fun it was. The kids loved it, and even my hubby couldn’t stop looking at the eggs. LOL – we’re nerds. Haha!


These are SO fun Kristyn! πŸ™‚

    Thanks, friend!! Your kiddo would love them too – they are just so fun to look at. πŸ™‚

Nicky @ Pink Recipe Box

Fun! Sounds like a great idea. Now I’ve just got to get my hands on some plastic eggs and I’m set!

    Lil' Luna

    Let me know how it goes. My kiddos LOVED it!! Have a great week and a Happy Easter. πŸ™‚

I love this idea. My 6 year old is obsessed with egg hunts and this would be a fun twist to that. Thanks for sharing. I would love it if you could link this up to our linky party going on right now.

    Lil' Luna

    Thank you!! He will definitely love the glow in the dark eggs. They just look so cool when they are all lit up and spread out on the yard. Thanks for stopping by! πŸ˜€


Oh my gosh! I just love this idea! My son and nephews will just have a blast hunting for these. Thanks for the awesome tip!

    Lil' Luna

    You’re welcome, Courtney! It’s so fun especially because with our family we are always rushing to get it done before it gets too dark but now we solved that problem! Hope your kiddos like it. Have a great Easter! πŸ™‚


Great idea! The last couple of years, because my kids are a little older, I’ve done a flashlight Easter egg hunt at night, where I’ve painted the eggs with glow in the dark paint, to make the hunt a little more challenging than a daytime hunt. But the glow sticks in the eggs will be perfect for the young guests.

    Lil' Luna

    Jennifer – painting the eggs in glow in the dark pant is awesome too!!! Great idea! Will have to try that out next year! Thanks for coming over to say hi. Hope you can come back again. πŸ™‚


I love this idea. Definitely saving it to do with my kids. Thanks!

    Your kids will love it. We already did it once but the kids had so much fun we may have to do it one more time before Easter is over. πŸ™‚

Claire Jain

So cute! I wonder if those little light up votives would fit in there so at least you could have eggs that turn on and off.

    Lil' Luna

    Ooooh – great idea!! Let me know if you try it out. Would love to add that option to the post. Thanks for stopping by! XO


Wow, now you can hunt eggs after dark… easy hunt too. I wouldn’t lose these either. love it…I’m glad I found your blog at the Creations by Kara party. II liked you on FB, but I didn’t see a follow button,, so I can keep in touch. I would love if you stopped by and followed back on LF and GFC. Nice to meet you, Lori

    You’re welcome! It really is a great idea and the kids love it! πŸ™‚


I can not find the sticks anywhere! Where did you all find them?

    Lil' Luna

    I find mine at the local dollar store, or in the dollar sections at Target or Michael’s. There is like 15 in a tube, and they’re $1. πŸ™‚


I adore this!! Thank you for the fun activity–I wanted to share our experience with you. I blogged about the fun we had and left linky love on my blog of fun kids activities. Thanks again!

May I use your glow in the dark picture on my private blog to have a visual to link to your post on this? We did a glow in the dark hunt and it was a great success, but we didn’t get a photo of any glowing eggs.

    Lil' Luna

    Sure thing! As long as you link back you can always use a pic from my blog. Thanks for asking. πŸ™‚

Mendy Frost

I absolutely love this!! I actually don’t have children myself, but enjoyed doing it for the kids in the family! I think the adults enjoyed it more than some of the kids!! It was a blast! We did a glow in the dark egg hunt both Saturday and Sunday nite! Thanks so much!

I did this yesterday and it was a hit!!! Thanks so much for the idea!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Your right the glow sticks are a little hard to fit, but other thann that it was awesome even the big kids wanted to go egg hunting!:)


how long do the eggs glow? Or how long do the glow sticks last?


Can’t wait to try these Glow in the Dark Eggs this Easter!

Dawn De Lorenzo

Hobby Lobby sells the little tiny sticks to put inside the eggs:)


    How much are these glow sticks??? or do you remember??? We are on a tight budget so just wondering. THanks


Ok, this may sound like a really dumb question but I want to do a night egg hunt w/ the glow stick but I have a couple of questions: first–the glow sticks–the stuff in them to make them glow, is it liquid, gel, ???. The reason I’m asking that is, here comes the dumb part, I have glow “sticks” and was wondering if I could cut them to go in the eggs. (They are too long as the “sticks”.), second–what “glow” thing did you use in them??? Thanks for your help. Marty


We loved this activity. But we used it for FHE and my husband used the story in Enos of the Brother of Jared- where the Lord lights the stones. I’m sure my kids will never forget this scripture story, because of the glow-in-the- dark eggs! πŸ™‚


We did the Easter egg glow in dark. With glow Sticks in colored eggs with candy didn’t work well. The kids couldn’t hardly tell what color the eggs were. Since they had a certain color to hunt. Can someone tell us what we did wrong.

    Lil' Luna

    Hmmm, we have done it several times each year for the past few years and it’s always worked. Were your glow sticks new and bright?

Sky Lanterns

ohh woww they are looking cool , this is such a great idea , glow eggs or balloons

    Lil' Luna

    The kids love these things!! Glow sticks come in handy in so many ways! I’m glad you like this idea!!

      Sky Lanterns

      and I m happy that a blogger herself answering me πŸ˜€ you have a lot of followers on facebook , you have a big amount of fan of your party ideas πŸ™‚

        Lil' Luna

        Oh, thank you so much!!! We love to throw parties and it is so much more fun when you can share what you did and your ideas! So many fun ideas out there!
