An Egglo Easter Adventure ( Review)

Wednesday, March 11, 2015

Easter is an exciting celebration for every Christian.  Our children eagerly await Easter Sunday as we celebrate the resurrection of our Lord with chocolate & Easter Eggs.  We feel it is so important to teach our children the truth behind the traditions.  It makes the celebration all the more meaningful and special.  Recently we were blessed to try a variety of products from  Egglo Entertainment.  This fun package is designed to bring the focus of Easter back to the truth that Jesus is the Light of the world. 
Our package from Egglo Entertainment contained:
* A dozen Glow in the Dark Egglo Eggs
These Egglo eggs are refillable plastic eggs that glow in the dark making a fun night time Easter Egg hunt.  They do require charging in some kind of light.  They come in a variety of colour combinations and have a cross on them - this is designed to remind the children about the true meaning of Easter. They are reusable for many fun filled evenings.
* The Egg-cellent Easter Adventure Book:
This is a fun adventure story book for the whole family.  It is rather a long story for a picture book, but it is well written and keeps the reader ( & listeners) engrossed in the pages.   The illustrations are beautiful with lots of details.  The story teaches character traits through Bible verses and the adventures of the characters.  It also directs the children to the true meaning of Easter.
*A package of Egglo Treasures Scripture Scrolls:
These are designed to be used in conjunction with the other products.  Scrolls are a major part of the adventure story.  These particular scrolls fit well  into the Egglo Eggs.
* A package of Egglo Bible Verse Stickers:
These are stickers which have Bible verses printed on them.  These are designed to again turn the focus of the child towards the true meaning of Easter.  These can be used in a variety of ways including decorating the eggs.
*A download of the Egglo Glow in the Dark Egg Hunt Event Curriculum:
This curriculum gives detailed ideas of how to use the Egglo Entertainment products as well as activities that complement them.  It also includes recipes, colouring pages, prints of the scrolls & print outs of invitations should you decide to have a Glow in the Dark Easter event.  
Egglo Entertainment Review

We had so much fun using the Egglo Entertainment products. I decided that I would prepare an Easter evening for our children.  They were so excited when I told them Easter was coming early this year!   I was pleasantly surprised at how little preparation was required to make a fun evening for the whole family.  I made sure I read through the Event Curriculum guide to ensure I was using the products correctly.  While I got some good ideas from it, I do feel it is particularly designed for a larger group such as a Sunday School or an actual party ( that would be fun!).  It was helpful at directing me in how to use the products and I appreciate the print outs of the scrolls which means that we can reuse the eggs with these in future years.  I did have to charge the eggs in light before use.  I did this by placing the halves on our bedroom windowsill for a day.  I also purchased some small chocolate Easter eggs to put inside the Egglo eggs.  Then I simply had to place the scroll, sticker & chocolates inside the eggs & snap them together.  I decided to hide them indoors in a dark room.
Once evening came, we sat down & I read the Adventure Book to all our children.  They thoroughly enjoyed it.  I appreciated the lessons being taught within the story & the children certainly enjoyed looking at the creative illustrations.  The adventure captures the imagination & kept us all involved.  After that it was time for the egg hunt.  I put them in the room & closed the door and in very little time they had found all the glowing eggs ( next time I will hide them in more difficult places...).  Because they want to reuse the eggs, they decided not to decorate them with the stickers. They all remarked how much fun it had been & begged to do it again at Easter!  
The Egglo Entertainment package brings fun to Easter, while also directing children to look to the truth.  It was very easy to use & there were many ideas that would make it an excellent activity to do with a Sunday School or Church Group .  They are fun to use as a family also!
While the story may be a little long for preschoolers, it certainly kept all my children interested.  
Although not all the products are necessary  for using the curriculum (such as the stickers) they certainly complement the program and make for a fun filled evening!
