Take your Easter Egg Hunt to the next level and host a Glow in the Dark Egg Hunt that teaches kids that Jesus is the light. In John 8:12, Jesus says, ““I am the light of the world. Anyone who follows me will never walk in darkness. They will have that light. They will have life.” At Easter, we celebrate the life that Jesus brings through his death and resurrection, and kids can learn more about how Jesus is the Light with this special Glow in the Dark Easter Egg Hunt!
Gather the families in your ministry and community for a time of Easter stations (crafts & games), a short lesson, then a special egg hunt with glow in the dark Easter eggs! The night starts off with families going through 10 different open Easter stations (to complete in whatever order and at their own pace) like Glow Art, Egg Challenges, and even Peeps S’mores for a snack! After this open-ended time of fellowship and fun, gather everyone in one space for a short time of worship and an engaging lesson using glowing tonic water. Then explain the two egg hunt styles (numbered and lettered) and release kids for the glowing egg hunt fun! The event lasts approximately 1.5 hours-2 hours.
