Illuminated Easter Egg Hunt

Plastic Easter Eggs
I know it’s a bit early for Easter, but with all of the Easter stuff out in stores, my son has been asking to do an Easter egg hunt.  I bought some FINGER LIGHTS online , put them in the eggs with some other fun stuff, and set this up for him tonight.  He absolutely LOVED it!  I cant wait to do it outside one night – so fun!
For more fun in the dark, check out RLs post HERE 
(where I drew some inspiration from).
The eggs are just your standard plastic Easter eggs that can be purchased pretty much anywhere this time of year. 
THESE are the lights I used.

    This is awesome. My son is blind but can see light so I am going to give this a try. What do the lights you put in the eggs look like and do you know the name/brand of lights you used?

    Look for “The eggs are just your standard plastic Easter eggs that can be purchased pretty much anywhere this time of year. THESE are the lights I used. You can find them at Michaels in the wedding aisle.” on this page and click on “THESE”,its a link with a picture of the lights.

    We did this tonight….it was SO cool! My daughter insisted on taking one egg to bed with her. We will be doing this again and again. I am so glad you shared! Thank you! There is nothing better than to be able to delight a child!

    I found some “immersible” led lights at Michaels yesterday which were amazing in the tub,hidden in green eggs for St. Pat’s!! The ones you linked to say they last 8 hours… does that mean you can’t replace the battery? Can you turn them off between uses? (Our Michaels didn’t have them.)

    • Julie says:

      I tried this, and yes, you can turn them off. Yes, the batteries are replacable. I found them at JoAnn Etc for 15.99$ and a 50% off a non-sale item coupon!
