How to Make Glow-in-the-Dark Easter Eggs
Glow-in-the-Dark Easter Eggs
In our family, we have a tradition every year to have an Easter Egg Hunt for our six kids! We fill lots and lots of plastic Easter eggs with candy, money and other goodies and hide them in the backyard. However, this year we changed things up. We decided to try something new and it was a blast!
This year, we headed to Walmart and Dollar Tree to pick up the goodies we needed to make our Glow-in-the-Dark Easter Eggs. We bought a bunch of plastic Easter eggs (different sizes are great) at Walmart and then Glow-in-the-Dark bracelets from Dollar Tree. We spent about $15 on plastic eggs and glow-in-the-dark bracelets for six kids. Not too bad, right?
Putting the Glow-in-the-Dark Easter eggs together was fun. First, open up the plastic Easter eggs and then break the glow sticks and shake, this will activate the glow-in-the-dark material in them. Next, twist the glowing bracelets in a knot and attach the ends to a connector so they will fit in the plastic Easter eggs and stay together. Then close the egg and you will have a fantastic glowing egg.
My wife put together bags of candy for each of the kids instead of putting the candy in the plastic eggs, though you could also put a piece of candy in the egg with the light stick as there is still room. The kids loved it! They had a blast searching for the Easter Eggs in the backyard in the dark and loved how they looked in the white paper bags. All in all, we would definitely do this again for our future Easter Egg Hunts!!
