Glow in the Dark Easter Egg Hunt at Night
Remember our Easter Egg Dying Ideas for thinking outside the typical egg dye? This time we wanted to share with you a creative Easter Egg Hunt, a Glow in the Dark Easter Egg Hunt.
Updated for 2020: This year I will be doing this night time Easter egg hunt with my family since the kids can sleep in the next day. I will not be using tea lights but will be using flashlights. I will have the older kids hide the eggs and then draw a map. This will add time to their daily routine. I will have the younger kids be the hunters using the older kids as guides and using their map (even if the map is unnecessarily). They can all sleep in the next day!
To achieve this fun scavenger hunt for the kids at night, we place flameless tea lights inside of our Easter Eggs. You can fill the remaining space with tiny candy, like M&Ms or skittles, or you can have the kids trade in their flameless lights for a treat basket that you have. That way they get to choice a candy they like and you get back your tea lights!
They sell glow in the dark Easter eggs online, but we find they do not get as bright as eggs with lights inside. We picked up our eggs and flameless tea lights at the dollar store, that means you can pull this off for next to nothing and it’s a memorable way to enjoy Easter and create a new family tradition!
Tealights add up so there is another way to play this game/hunt, have a Flashlight Easter Egg hunt. You can keep the glow in the dark theme with the flameless tealights or you can have bright colored eggs to they stand out when a flashlight shines on them. Enjoy an evening searching for eggs in the dark. Make it challenging by hiding the eggs in places that are not seen well in the light (or in the dark) or make it not as challenging and just fun by having eggs that are easily found in the light but not as well in the dark.
When inviting others, ask people to bring their own flashlight. You can pay attention to when the sun sets in your area on the weather channel and then plan a start time approximately 20 minutes after the sun sets. If you kids go to bed early, perhaps move this flashlight Easter Egg hunt inside and shut all the blinds in your home. You could have your own flashlight Easter egg hunt in doors!
Afterwards, have fun making these glow in the dark eggs with this easy science experiment with the kids!
