Learning about Easter with Egglo Eggs

Share Wildflower Ramblings!


I was given a set of Glow in the Dark Egglo Eggs and the Egg-cellent Easter Adventure book from Egglo Entertainment to review.  These glow in the dark products are meant to create a visual and tactile element for children learning about Jesus as the light of the world — they aid in teaching children about the truths and glory of His resurrection.

I was skeptical of these glowing Easter eggs at first.  Do they work?  Will my child like them?

And since we are still in the midst of a blizzard, I had to be creative and bring the fun indoors — into my son’s room first thing in the morning.  I had “charged” them in the sun the night before, but they had died out, mostly, but a little artificial light made them shine just fine for our purposes.  I know they would have shown much brighter, had I not “charged” them for only 15 minutes (the directions say to charge for about one hour in sunlight and 2-3 hours in artificial light).  (The above picture is in his pitch black dark room, with me using my flash.)


I told him to leave the room — which made him eager to know what was going on — and I simply hid the eggs all around the room.  The lights were out, and it was still dark outside, so they walked in to seeing the eggs all around them.  John and May came in and they were so excited!  John collected all of the eggs into a pile in the middle of the room, and they both had one in each hand as they shook the contents and both began singing and dancing.

They played for over an hour.

During our time, the kids shooI reminded them of our important Bible verse — I focused on two:

The light shines in the darkness and the darkness does not overcome it. – John 1:5

Jesus said, “I am the light of the world.” – John 8:12

And John wrote a song, all by himself,

Hosanna to Jesus,

Jesus died on the cross,

They laid him in the tomb,

The stone was rolled away,

Jesus is alive!

Yes, John wrote and sang that song over and over and over again.  I couldn’t make it up if I tried.  These eggs really resonated with him.  I was absolutely breathless.  I am so glad I wrote it down.  A forever memory of my precious boy.

We further explored the crucifixion and resurrection of Christ when we opened the eggs.  I filled them with the 12 materials from my homemade Resurrection Eggs set {check out how you can share the Easter Story with Resurrection Eggs post with free printable here}.  


Egglo Eggs were perfect for this Easter learning!  He found the eggs and now he opened them up to learn more about, and share verbally, the Easter story!  Here he is, opening the eggs and talking about each one — the cross and the spear are pictured below.


We also received these scrolls with Bible verses on them.  I know my son will put these to good use as he gets a bit older.


While I liked the Egg-cellent Easter Adventure book — it puts the focus of an Easter egg hunt back onto Jesus.  But I think it is a bit too mature for my 3 1/2 year old.  I’d like to see Egglo Entertainment produce one geared towards the 2-4 year old set.  My son loves the book and its pictures, but I’m not sure how much he is getting from the adventures of the children in the book.


I look forward to using Egglo eggs every Easter with my little ones.  (They want to play with these eggs every morning now!)  I hope you check out the products available:  Glow in the Dark Egglo Eggs ($11.99), The Egg-cellent Easter Adventure ($12.99), The Egg-cellent Easter Adventure (book audio download) ($2.99), Egglo Treasures Scripture Scrolls ($4.29), The Egg-cellent Easter Adventure Program Guide ($14.99).
