Our favorite Easter Egg Hunt

We started this little tradition last year, and the kids are already asking about it.

Yes, I plan to do it again.  It was so much fun, and such a hit with the kids.

Glow in the Dark Egg Hunt

What you need:

glow sticks(we used bracelets, and I just bought more for this year in the Target Dollar spot)

tape

plastic eggs

Instructions:

Wait until it is dark outside.

Start by breaking the sticks so they glow. 

Then gently fold them into thirds and tape. 

You must do this without breaking them so they don’t leak.

Place the folded glow stick inside your plastic eggs, close and watch them glow.

Now hide them outside in the dark.

Listen to your kids laugh and enjoy every minute.

Our kids liked finding these eggs even more than they did finding eggs with treats and money hidden inside.

After we did our hunt; we let the kids hide them for each other.  The fun just kept on going.

I found this idea on pinterest here last year.

Sounds like fun! How long do the bracelets stay lit? I am just wondering how much before hand I could prepare this o if I need to wait until just before the hunt? Thanks!!
