DIY Reusable Glow-in-the-Dark Easter Eggs

March 27, 2017

Do your kids love to hunt Easter eggs? Mine love it! The funny thing is mine will continue to hind and hunt Easter eggs for several weeks. Their favorite “anything” right now is glow in the dark. We are constantly having glow in the dark family parties. The problem with sticking glow sticks in the kids eggs is they only last for one day and it becomes expensive when they want to hide eggs for several weeks.

This Easter, I am one foot ahead of the kids. I completely understand that seeking glowing eggs is way more fun than seeking regular eggs. Let’s face it, I wish we had glow in the dark eggs to seek when I was growing up. In order to save some money I decided to take all our plastic Easter eggs, along with a can of Rust-Oleum Glow in the Dark spray paint and get to work. I laid them all out and sprayed the eggs several times with thin coats of glow in the dark paint. My kids were running around while I was painting the eggs and they were so excited.

Once the eggs were completely dry I wanted to make sure they would glow like I anticipated. The key is to make sure they get ample amounts of direct sun light before using them. I put all the eggs into a basket and sat them outside in the sunlight for the afternoon. That evening they glowed brightly. The best part about these awesome glow in the dark eggs is they are reusable. I don’t have to take the time to stuff glow sticking into each egg. Just stick the eggs in the sun. If my kids want to hunt glow in the dark eggs several nights they can!

Creating these reusable glow in the dark Easter eggs is so inexpensive and simple. Kids can enjoy glow in the dark egg hunts for years to come by simply spray painting your plastic eggs with glow in the dark paint.
