glow in the dark easter egg hunt!

And so Easter is over for the year... we've had a wonderful couple of days with family and friends. Ive been good.. only a few eggs for me so Im pretty happy with that :)

This year, I wanted to do something different for our hunt. Id seen lots of different ideas in lots of blogs but the one that stood out all over the web is to make some glow in the dark eggs.

I bought some plastic eggs and some glow sticks and, whilst hiding in the cupboard trying to put them together, my kids were keen to find out what exciting thing I was working on. The glow sticks were quite a bit trickier to get into the eggs that I thought but with some under the breath growling and some trust sticky tape, we were ready. I hid the eggs in their bedrooms, under sheets and in cupboards, so that you couldnt really see them but for their glow :)

Such a fun idea :) They played we these glow eggs for quite a while, until they worked out how to take the tape off and created their own "dark party".

So much fun!

  1. Very cool! We love glow sticks. The toddler likes to try to chew on them and Charley bends them until they break. But we still have fun with them. lol
