Then be sure to check out Egglo Entertainment’s Glow in the Dark Egglo Eggs, The Egg-cellent Easter Adventure book, and their supporting products. Egglo Entertainment’s products can make this Easter a new and exciting time for you and your family. I had the opportunity to review some of their products and am excited to include them in our Easter celebration this year.
Jesus is the Light of the Dark World
What is Egglo Entertainment?
Egglo Entertainment was begun from the idea that keeping the focus on God’s sacrifice for us during the time between Good Friday and Easter Sunday is essential. The authors saw the symbolic darkness as a time for teaching about the idea that Jesus is the light of the [dark] world.
The Egg-cellent Easter Adventure book is an interactive store that keeps the focus on the true meaning of Easter. By emphasizing the meaning of the holiday by bringing scripture and “light” through glow in the dark Easter eggs, Egglo Entertainment has given families and groups a new, fun way to get kids excited about celebrating Easter.
Who is it for?
Egglo Entertainment offers products to make Easter games for kids more fun for groups like VBS, Sunday School class, or youth groups as well as for individual and family use. The products are geared toward ages 4 through 13; however, they can most certainly be adapted for any age.
What We Received and How We Used It
We received Glow in the Dark Egglo Eggs, The Egg-cellent Easter Adventure book, and Egglo Treasures Scripture Scrolls as well as The Egg-cellent Easter Adventure (book audio download). With so many ways to use the products, it was difficult to determine the best way to begin using Egglo Entertainments products.We got out the book and started reading. That was the best way to get started. I asked my 9 year old to read the story to us, starting with a few pages, since it is pretty long. She didn’t want to put it down. We ended up making it through the entire book pretty quickly. My daughter really enjoyed the book and didn’t want to stop reading it. My 4 year old didn’t make it through the entire first read however; it is a little long for one sitting for him.
My daughter loved the story. She pointed out Bible verses throughout that she knew and enjoyed the mystery to the story and the traveling through time. The story tells of a group of children who stumble upon a glowing Easter egg and travel through time learning about the true meaning of Jesus and the Easter holiday as they await their first glow in the dark Easter eggs hunt.
My 4 year old enjoyed the story as well; however, we had to read the story to him in sections to keep him engaged. He mostly just wanted to play with the glow in the dark Easter eggs.
The first night we put together several of the glow in the dark Easter eggs and the kids had their own egg hunt in the house. They “charged” them in the sunlight for a while and then took them to a dark room and took turns hiding them and finding them. I let them play for as long as they wanted since they were having so much fun. The next day we began reading the story. When reading the story I reminded them how they were able to find their way to the eggs in the dark during their egg hunts because the eggs were shining from being charged in the sun, the way we become charged with God’s word, His light.
And the light shines in the darkness and the darkness has not overcome it. John 1:5
It took a little longer for my son to put together the connection between the shining, glow in the dark Easter eggs and the Word being the light – that God provides us with the light to find our way through life. It was interesting to discuss this with reference to the glow in the dark Easter eggs but the kids seemed to relate.
The kids really liked the eggs. My daughter particularly liked the eggs that are embossed with a cross. She thought it was “awesome” that there was a cross on the eggs. She found this to be an excellent addition to the Easter eggs.
Additionally, we received Egglo Treasures Scripture Scrolls which have individual Bible verses on them on mini-scrolls that fit inside the eggs. I thought this was awesome! I love the idea of providing scripture in the Easter eggs. Though I’m certain my children will not really want to give up the candy, they are small enough that they fit in the egg with still room for a little candy. I think it will be a nice way to have an Easter egg hunt this year.
The glow in the dark Egglo eggs provide numerous ideas for Easter games for kids. You could have a traditional egg hunt but at night or in a darkened room with flashlights. You could have a scavenger hunt with clues inside the eggs. My daughter came up with the idea of hiding the Egglo eggs throughout the neighborhood with a Bible verse inside for others to find as a way to spread the Word (I love her little service heart.) There are just so many ways you could use Glow in the Dark Egglo Eggs with the Egglo Treasures Scripture Scrolls and the Egg-cellent Easter Adventure book that I’m sure I’m missing something great that we haven’t thought of yet.
Let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven. Matthew 5:16
