Previously, we have discussed putting mini glow sticks into plastic easter eggs to make them glow! In this article we look at a couple other bright ideas for your next big glowing Easter egg hunt!
Let’s start with brightening up the hunting fields a little by spattering the grounds with some fun glowing decorations! One easy do-it-yourself glow craft idea that works great for Easter egg hunts is a bunch of Glowing Toadstools! Simply wrap some mid-sized glow sticks with paper and tissue and shape the top part into simple mushroom shapes. These wonderful little glowing toadstools will create a fun glowing effect throughout your entire Easter egg search area!
4″ Glow Sticks with Stands are recommended to use for these glowing mushrooms due to the plastic stand that comes with them. (however any type of 4″ or 6″ glow sticks will work just fine)
Another fun way to brighten up the hunting fields is to add some fun glowing flower and butterfly decorations throughout the area. Use your imagination and create your own glow creations as well!
Circular glow connectors and glow bracelets will allow you to create these fun and unique glowing decorations. The center of the glow stick circular connector also has a small hole so you can use a small tack, nail or even string to attach your decorations to nearby trees, fence posts or hang them around.
Now that we have a beautiful glowing easter egg hunting ground, everybody will have a bright time hunting for those glowing Easter eggs among a field of glowing mushrooms and flowers!
As we’ve mentioned before, Miniature Glow Sticks work perfectly for placing inside of standard plastic Easter eggs. For a slightly brighter glow (and a little bit more work) you can also use Glow Bracelets and some string or an elastic band to ‘clump’ the glow bracelet in a folded manner and place that within the plastic Easter eggs. This may work better for larger style plastic eggs.
Also be sure to decorate your hunters (and their baskets) with a variety of Glow Bracelets, Glowing Glasses and Glowing Bunny Ears! This Glow Craft and Glow Party Pack comes with a fun variety of glow accessories perfect for highlighting your Easter Egg hunting party!
Liven up your party with glowing party snacks and treats! Here we will highlight a couple simple additions for your standard birthday and party snack treats that will surely make them shine!
How about adding some simple glow sticks to your cakes and cupcakes for a wonderful glowing treat! Or use looped glow necklaces to wrap around a food platter for a glowing cupcake display.
Note: If you plan to use glow sticks in any edible products, it is always best to choose a higher quality brand of glow sticks. We find that the best choice for cupcakes and cake displays are glow bracelets. When purchasing glow bracelets, be sure to check that the thickness of the glow bracelet is at least 5-6mm in thickness or larger. This is to ensure that you receive no cracked or leaking glow bracelets. It is always advisable to clean the glow sticks with warm water and soap prior to placing into any edible food items.
Another really easy addition to any snack bar is a big bowl of glowing candy! Simply add a few glow sticks to the bottom of a bowl and fill it with delicious gummy candies. The glow effect will shine through the gummies to create a cool and fun lighted candy bowl! Again, be sure to wash your glow sticks with warm water and soap prior to placing in the bowl.
Are you planning on making some homemade cotton candy for your party? What about adding an extra something to your candy floss by making it glow! Simply use large glow sticks or LED light sticks as handles for your cotton candy floss and make your party the brightest ever! Battery operated light sticks might be best suited for this one since you can turn them off and have them prepared before the party and not worry about your ‘glow running out’ before the party even starts!
