Egglo Entertainment for your Easter Celebration *Review

Egglo Review

Egglo Entertainment is creator of Egglo Eggs, a glow in the dark Easter egg designed to help children keep their Easter focus on Jesus.. giver of Light!

Egglo Review

Egglo Eggs are unique in that they can be charged with the sun, and hidden out of sight. Their glow will help not only find them but be a path to discussion on Jesus being our light in a dark place.
Much more than just doing an Easter Egg hunt to find candy, the mission of Egglo Entertainment is to put a fresh focus on the Easter holiday and how it relates to Jesus. Enough with the candy, and bunnies, and simple easter egg hunts. Do children today really even know whey they are celebrating??

We have personally not done Easter baskets, choosing to keep the focus on Christ. We haven't participated in egg hunts and have only been a part of parties that have used eggs with a focus, much like the Egglo eggs. It was just our choice, not implying that it is wrong to do so. We do celebrate Easter but in different ways rather than the baskets and egg hunts. We do celebrate instead the first day of Spring, being created by God. These eggs have been perfect for our early Spring celebration.

Egglo Review
We received the following items for review
*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)

The program is geared for ages 4-13. I found that the middle ages worked best, and they were most able to understand it. My 11 and 13 year old, perhaps from knowledge already of Easter, weren't as excited. My 11 year old enjoyed being the one to put the scriptures in the eggs and to brainstorm other ideas for how to use the eggs. He also used a heat lamp from our bird to 'charge' the eggs. I think the older kids can definitely be the ones to help teach the youngers with this curriculum.

 I mentioned a little earlier about the eggs being charged by light and being able to glow in the dark. The Egglo Treasure Scripture Scrolls are the perfect size to fit in the eggs. "There are 12 different scrolls in one pack, sized just right to fit inside an Easter egg. Each scroll contains a simple verse based on: 1 Corinthians 15:3-4, Deuteronomy 6:5, proverbs 3:5-6, Matthew 5:16 and 28:20, John 1:4, 1:5, 3:16, 8:12 and 12:46. There are 12 verses in all."

Egglo Review

We read the Easter Adventure Storybook first. It is a 40 page book, much more in depth than a simple Easter story. It takes approx half an hour to read it.  Toddlers may have a hard time keeping attention for the entire time. There is also an audio book available that makes it so that your young ones can easily listen to it again and again.

 The program guide is the perfect tool if you want to use the Egglo system for a church or youth group. It comes with additional information to make your celebration complete from invitations, decorations, extra activities, coloring pages and more. This resource can be used year after year.

When our children were little we participating in a Resurrection Easter Egg program that we had to plan all the activities for. A study guide like this one would have been invaluable!

Sign up for free lesson tools, coloring pages and more as well as new ideas on how to use the eggs HERE  Scroll down to the bottom of the page.

Not just for Easter or Spring either. Save these eggs to use year round for fun in memorizing verses. Put a different verse address in each egg and hide them. Have students one by one find the eggs, and see if they know what the verse is. Have them look it up and memorize the verse from their egg. These would be perfect for use in a Sunday School class as well as homeschooling families.
