Your kids will love this nighttime twist on a traditional egg hunt! When I was preparing the eggs, I had originally planned on putting a whole bracelet in each egg—which would have worked fine with bigger eggs. But in trying to make the bracelet fit into the egg, the plastic broke and the glow fluid began oozing out. So I decided to just go with it! I cut up the bracelets and put a small section in each egg and shook them up. I love how cool they look—like little galaxies! Now, of course, you can't add candy with all the paint inside, but my kids had just as much fun searching without a treat involved!

Materials Needed

  • Plastic eggs ($1.00)
  • Glow-in-the-dark bracelets ($1.00)


  1.  If you have bigger eggs, you can just fold up an entire bracelet and slip it into your egg.
  2. To get the spattered look, cut up your bracelets over a sink. Put a small section of bracelet inside each egg, close up the egg and shake (any loose paint washes off easily with water).
  3. The glowing effect is shorter when the bracelets are cut up this way, but you will still have plenty of time for a terrific nighttime hunt!
Have a Glow-in-the-Dark Easter Egg Hunt!
