The Kids’ Favorite Easter Tradition

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

Supplies for glow in the dark Easter eggs

what you need

  • Plastic Easter Eggs (medium – large size work best)
  • Glow Sticks (found in the dollar section at Target, Michael’s, Dollar Store) – or Mini Glow Sticks
  • Tape
  • Candy

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. 🙂

2. Tape shut, if needed, and HIDE while glow sticks are glowing.

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.

I promise this will become your kids’ new favorite Easter tradition.

  1. 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! 🙂

  2. 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.

    1. 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?

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

      1. and I m happy that a blogger herself answering me 😀 you have a lot of followers on facebook , you have a big amount of fan of your party ideas 🙂

        1. 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!

  3. Hi! Stumbled upon your link + wanted to share something thAt has worked well for Us over the years. I purchase The tea lights from the Dollar Tree. They come in packs of four + fit perfectly inside a plastic egg. Some are white light, some change colors. It is super easy to just turn theM on. We store and reuse them.
