Who doesn’t like an Easter Egg hunt? Well I love them, but I thought that what would be better than just a plain old egg hunt: a glow in the dark one! This is a great activity that young and old will enjoy, and what’s even better is that there is no chocolate involved so not only can you avoid any of the tears over how much chocolate they can have, but it also means that those who can’t have chocolate, due to allergies or diabetes, can join in the fun.

What you will need:

  • Plastic eggs that you can open and close (available cheaply from any super market)
  • Glow sticks
  • Tape

All you need to do is activate the glow sticks, coil them round and put them in the plastic eggs (you may need to tape the eggs shut to stop them from popping open). Then find a dark place to hide them.  We did our hunt in the playroom in the middle of the afternoon with all the curtains shut, but for older children it would be fab outside when it is dark.
