Glow In The Dark Easter Egg Hunt

eggs, glow sticks

Every year I try and send the nieces and nephews something fun for Easter. When they were all little, this was a fun and simple task. However, as they’ve moved into the teen years it has become a little harder. When I saw this glow in the dark Easter egg hunt on Pinterest, I knew that it was egg-actly what I was looking for.

What? Too cheesy. Sorry, I couldn’t help myself!

Here’s What You Will Need

Easter Eggs. I found mine here.

Glow in the dark sticks. I used 1 1/2 inch ones that I found here.

I could have stopped there and just left it at a friendly Easter Egg hunt, but in our family we like to take things to the egg-streme

So, instead of filling the eggs with candy or giving prizes to the one with the most eggs, egg-cetera, I decided to make things a little more interesting for the teens.

First, I numbered the bottom of a six eggs.

Then I numbered envelopes to fill with prizes.

If you get an egg with the number 4, then you get the envelope for the number 4.

Simple, really. I filled the envelopes with cash and gift cards.


Since I’m sending these egg hunts through the mail, I thought it would be best to send a card with some instruction.

I mean, it might be a little crazy to open a box with nothing but eggs and envelopes inside!

Now, it’s time for the hunt.

First, snap the glow stick to activate it, then put it inside the egg!
