This glow in the dark Easter egg hunt is a fun way to get teens and older kids involved in this classic tradition.
I told my boys I had a surprise for them after Youth Group and to bring a friend. They showed up excited. I told them they were doing a glow in the dark Easter egg hunt and how many eggs each person could get. They jumped off the porch and were more than surprised when they opened them up and saw slips with varying amounts of money on them. It’s like Lottery tickets – some were pennies and some were dollars.
It was really fun and something I plan to incorporate every year!
How To Plan A Glow In The Dark Easter Egg Hunt
- Extra large plastic eggs (so the tea lights will fit)
- battery operated tea lights
- slips of paper with various amounts of money written (we did .30 cents to $10.00)
- easter basket (optional)
- Cut the slips of paper with the varying amounts of money on them.
- Stuff each egg with one tea light and one slip of paper.
- When it gets dark, hide them in a specific area of the yard.
- Be clear about how many eggs each person gets.
- Have fun and watch the kids’ surprise when they open the eggs to find money inside!
- Have them count up the money and add all of the amounts from their slips of paper. That’s how much money they get from the Easter Bunny (you)!
