Just because your kids are teens or tweens does not mean they have outgrown Easter Egg Hunts. They may not admit it out loud in front of friends that it is still fun to be a kid, but if they were “forced” to help little kids in a glow in the dark Easter Egg Hunt they would be more than willing. In fact, I had my 15-year-old daughter and some of her friends over for a glow in the dark Easter Egg Hunt. They acted all coy while they were stuffing the Easter Eggs but once it started and we invited some younger kids for them to “help” find the eggs, all I heard was laughter.
The best Egg fillers are the snack size candy from Mars. We found MARS® Mixed Mini Bags – 165ct – Spring themed bags at our Sam’s Club for a reasonable price. I just love the assortment in this bag, filled with our favorites such as M&M’S®, TWIX®, SNICKERS®, MILKY WAY®, and 3 MUSKETEERS ®. We found quite a few fun things to host an Easter Egg Party at Sam’s Club so shop early and stock up for all your spring entertaining needs.
What you will need for this Easter Egg Hunt Ideas for Older Kids
- MARS® Mixed Mini Bags – 165 ct – Spring themed
- Plastic Easter Eggs
- Mini Glow Sticks
- Paper Lunch Bags for Easter Egg hunt
- Prizes like these DIY Easy Painted Easter Mason Jars and Gift Cards (Teens love gift cards)
Since teens may need a little incentive to participate and while Candy is great it might be fun to also have prizes for the most eggs found. Fill these adorable Painted Easter Jars and fill them with extra candy. You might want to also offer some gift cards as all teens love a little extra money.
The eggs were brighter without the candy stuffed in them, but if you are only using the candy as the prizes it worked just fine.
Simply break the glow sticks and place them in your eggs.
Once it gets darker outside, place the glowing eggs around the yard. I could not capture the true look of this with the lighting but you can imagine how festive the yard looked with the glowing eggs.
We used white paper lunch bags and the eggs glowed thru these as well.
A glow in the dark easter egg hunt is perfect for any age but even more fun for the older kids that can stay up later and run around in the dark.
Do you think your older kids would enjoy this type of Easter Egg Hunt?
