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. Easter Egg Hunt ideas

Easter egg fillers for tweens and teens

The best Egg fillers are the snack size candy from Mars.  Be sure to check out our Easter Basket Fillers for teens too. 

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.

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.

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.
