Glow in the Dark Easter Egg Hunt

This year Easter is going to look a little different for most of us due to the COVID-19 outbreak.  I don’t know about you but that means I am looking for fun ways to make Easter extra special for our family.  A friend shared this fun and simple glow in the dark easter egg hunt activity she did with her kids.  She said it was such a hit they did it several nights in a row.  

I immediately bought the supplies and my kids were so excited to try!  It just takes a few supplies and a little setup for some fun glow in the dark easter egg hunt fun!  Add this glow in the dark Easter egg hunt to your Easter bucket list this year.

Glow in the Dark Easter Egg Hunt Directions

The finger lights are perfect because you can reuse them over and over again, night after night, and year after year.   Turn on the finger light and place it inside each plastic egg.  Then, hide them around your house and wait until it gets dark.   If your eggs don’t stay shut, use a little tape to secure the light inside.

Glow in the Dark Easter Egg Variation Ideas

You can place candy inside each egg but it might dim the light so consider giving prizes for most eggs found.

Instead of candy, consider putting a little money in each egg.  My mom has an annual adult Easter egg hunt and she loads the eggs with coin and bills.  It gets quite competitive but it’s so fun.

If it’s raining or chilly, take the Easter egg hunt indoors.

Often the finger lights come in different colors, our pack came with 4 colors so you can have different kids look for different colored eggs.

Try a timed contest, to see who can find a set number of eggs the fastest.

Right now, since we are all quarantined, you could let your neighbors know you have a set number of eggs hidden in your yard and have them come by and look for them from the sidewalk.
