Making glow in the dark Easter eggs is such a fun twist on an average Easter egg hunt. Today I’m going to show you two different ways for how to make glow in the dark Easter eggs. Put them out in the dark for kids on Easter for a nighttime egg hunt! You’ll love how easy this is to do and how you can reuse your supplies next year.
Glow in the Dark Easter Egg Hunt
You will need the following supplies for a nighttime egg hunt:
- Large plastic Easter eggs (or jumbo eggs). You can find them here online.
- Flameless tea lights (like these)
- UPDATE: Here’s a second way of creating glow in the dark eggs – They now sell small glow sticks just for putting in Easter Eggs. Find them here!

Bigger kids are always love an egg hunt, even if they insist that they don’t believe in the Easter bunny:) There is something about childhood that makes magical traditions special, no matter how old you are. While a 2 year old might not be awake for a dark Easter hunt, 10 year olds are! Teenagers are also REALLY good at helping create this glowing scene for other kids. What is there not to love about an Eater egg hunt?
