This post, Plan a Fun Easter Egg Hunt With Egglo Entertainment, was made possible with the chance to review Glow in the Dark Egglo Eggs (currently $9.99 per package of 12), The Egg-cellent Easter Adventure book (currently $9.99 in print), Egglo Treasures Scripture Scrolls ($4.50 for a package of 12), Egglo Bible Verse Stickers ($3.29 for a package of 12 stickers) and The Egglo Glow in the Dark Egg Hunt Event Curriculum ($9.99 for a download file.) as part of the Schoolhouse Review Crew.
When my older boys were little, we used to attend a church sponsored Easter Egg Hunt. However, living in the colder climate of Alaska had me skipping this fun activity with our youngest son. Plus, the events I’ve seen advertised are large scale ‘candy grabs’ with no inclusion of WHY they are doing it. With the arrival of materials from Egglo Entertainment, I started making plans to have the lack of an Easter Egg Hunt be a thing of the past for our family.
What does Egglo Entertainment have to offer for planning an Easter Egg Hunt?
The base product from Egglo Entertainment is their Glow in the Dark Egglo Eggs. These come in a 12 pack package with 4 colors of eggs that will glow in the dark after being exposed to a light source for a while. On some of the eggs, you will see a cross to help remind the children WHY we are celebrating Easter through this type of fun activity.
The company offers several products to supplement the actual eggs whether you are planning to have an Easter Egg Hunt for your family or with a larger group. For groups or homeschool families, the Egglo Glow in the Dark Egg Hunt Event Curriculum helps to give you suggested structure for an Easter Egg Hunt.
The Egg-cellent Easter Adventure book provides a story structure for tying together the Resurrection story and participating in an egg hunt. Only, this story has the children visiting different locations. Ultimately, they find themselves back home where they find a Bible which they now recognize as a real treasure. The story is engaging with the inclusion of the 12 Scripture verses as well as having the children figure out clues to their next ‘destination.’ I like how the story ultimately ends with the Cross and pointing the children to the Bible where they can read all about Christ’s life and the Resurrection.
Egglo Treasure Scripture Scrolls which can be placed inside of the eggs and then unrolled by the child to find a Scripture verse which helps to point them to Jesus. The Scripture verses are used in the The Egg-cellent Easter Adventure book, but are a stand alone product with versus coming from Corinthians 15:3-4, Deuteronomy 6:5, Proverbs 3:5-6, Matthew 5:16 and 28:20, John 1:4, 1:5, 3:16, 8:12 and 12:46 taken from the New International Reader’s Version (1996.)
Egglo Bible Verse Scroll Stickers contain the same verses as the scrolls and can be used either to help fill the Easter eggs or distribute in another method to the children. However the child uses them, the stickers can help to plant the seeds of God’s Word in their hearts.
Our Thoughts About Planning an Easter Egg Hunt with Egglo Entertainment
I have to start by saying that I have never tried doing an Easter Egg hunt at home. The older boys, however, have done impromptu ones placing eggs in the snow for J to find. With the winter we’ve had (or should I say NOT had) here in Alaska, I am thinking it might be something we can do outside this year with the challenge of finding eggs in brush rather than the snow.
The Egglo Glow in the Dark Egg Hunt Event Curriculum provides a wonderful basis for our planning a fun time that is not just about getting as many candy filled eggs as you can. Instead, they provide ideas for snacks that focus on the Resurrection, a program to include either reading from the Gospels or The Egg-cellent Easter Adventure book, and questions that facilitators can ask while the kids are finding the hidden eggs. J has been enjoying the coloring pages which are included in the materials, too.
During this review period with crazy weather, we didn’t stage an egg hunt outside. However, we have been actively planning what we’ll do when Easter arrives and hopefully has nicer weather for an outdoor activity like this. Instead, we’ve read through the book, looked at the Scripture Scrolls when placing them into the eggs, and have had fun ‘charging’ up the eggs to see them glow in the dark. And, J has enjoyed doing mini ‘hunts’ of the eggs at night in the living room. Yep, the glow in the dark factor is a huge appeal for him.
Now that we’ve dipped into the materials, I can hardly wait for the larger Easter Egg Hunt ON Easter Sunday as a family. Any Christian denomination can benefit from this program as you can always create your own Scripture scrolls on small pieces of paper with verses from your preferred version of the Bible and use the curriculum as a guide to help you execute a customized Easter Egg hunt.
