I know it isn’t quite Easter yet, however, it IS time to start planning. I got a jump on it this year thanks to Egglo Entertainment!
Here is what I was sent…
This included Egglo Glow in the Dark Easter Eggs, The Egg-celent Easter Adventure Book, The Egglo Glow in the Dark Egg Hunt Event Curriculum, Egglo Bible Verse Stickers, and Egglo Treasures Scripture Scrolls.
Egglo takes a unique approach to teaching children about Easter through their story book and glow in the dark egg hunt.
The Egg-cellent Easter Adventure book is an interactive story that helps children learn the true meaning of Easter. The glowing egg in the story is a symbol of Jesus. The glow in the dark eggs then help children connect that Jesus is the light of the world.
The light shines in the dark and the darkness has not overcome it! ~ John 1:5
While waiting for the Easter hunt, three children discover a special treasure chest containing a glowing egg. As the children travel searching for the “glowing eggs” they are transported through time collecting clues to the true meaning of Easter. The children learn valuable life lessons about how to work together and treat each other as Jesus would have them. Children learn these lessons through the scripture portions of the book. One learns about being humble, the second about having courage and trusting God, and the third child learns that he must put his ways aside and follow those that God directs him too.
We really enjoyed the story and the characters. It was fun using the Scripture Scrolls to help the children interact with the story. It was also nice that each of my children’s personalities had similar traits as the children in the story. Each one could identify with a character and learn from their journey. It was a fabulous book and I highly recommend it!
After reading the story the children can then participate in their own glowing egg hunt with the Egglo Glow in the Dark Eggs. The eggs will need “charged” prior to the hunt. Their are several ways that this can work including sunlight, incandescent light, and/or black light. I recommend keeping them under the light until ready for the hunt.
I charged ours using sunlight/incandescent lighting. They did glow, however, not enough to do an outdoor hunt. It was hard to find them with the moonlight reflecting off of the leaves and grass. I recommend adding in glow stick if using outdoors. Indoors may be easier to find them since you can eliminate excess lighting by shutting blinds and turning off lights. I really like the idea of a glow hunt and would do it again with some tweeks. It just didn’t work as well the way we choose to do it. Indoors would have made for a better hunt. However, the story lesson still comes through! We still had a great time and made it a GLOW NIGHT!!!!!!
We filled our eggs with small treats and the scroll scripture stickers! The eggs are made from a durable plastic and snap together nicely without easily breaking open.
The curriculum guide is filled with fun snack ideas, decorating ideas, and coloring pages. It includes lots of printables that are ready to use. This would make a easy to put together and fun children’s ministry or Sunday school program. It could easily be adapted to fit preschool through elementary aged children. Their are several craft ideas and games using the Egglo eggs also listed.
Overall, I really liked the story and the concept of the program. The kids had a fun time reading the story, playing with the eggs, and most importantly learning about Jesus! The Egglo program is a creative and fun way to help children prepare their hearts and minds for the TRUE reason for Easter!
