EGGLO Entertainment~ Easter Games and Activities for Children (TOS Review Crew)

I received some, but not all of the items pictured. 
I was recently sent a fun set of things to review from Egglo Entertainment, in preparation for Easter. The items in the package revolve around a story, The Egg-Cellent Easter Adventure. I received a copy of the book as well as an audio download of the story, which is also available as a narrated DVD. I also received Egglo Treasures Scripture Scrolls which can be hidden in the Glow in the Dark Egglo Eggs , which would be especially engaging if done as part of a planned Easter Egg Hunt.

Now, a little bit about The Egg-Cellent Easter Adventure. The story follows three children, Hardy and Anastasia, their cousin Pascal, along with their dog Zeke on an exciting adventure that takes them around the world, where they find clues and Bible verses in mysterious, glowing, "glow-rious" eggs. The Bible verses found on scrolls in the eggs teach them truths that help them on their fantastic trip. The children visit Egypt, the ocean, and an erupting volcano. The story culminates when they return home for their church's special Glow In The Dark Easter Egg Hunt. What an entertaining way to share the Light of the World, and show that "The light shines in the darkness and the darkness has not overcome it." John 1:5.
We enjoyed reading the story, and seeing how the Scriptures were woven in to show not only why we celebrate Easter, but also giving some character training as well. The Audio is well done, and a nice option for those who listen to audio books frequently, or for pre-readers who want to try to follow along in their book.
The following video explains the heart of the Egglo products. 

 


and this video gives you a glimpse into the story

Of course the Glow In The Dark Eggs are the centerpiece, and most memorable part of the program. We used the eggs for an egg hunt in our own home, and the kids had a blast once all the eggs were found, trying to play catch and juggling with them (Well, Middlest is the only juggler in the family). I only wish that we had cameras that could capture that on video, as it resulted in gales of laughter and the occasional bonk off the head. 

Personally, as a family we have an Easter Egg hunt on Easter Saturday, and give the kids Easter Baskets then so that the focus is where it should be on both Good Friday and Easter Sunday. 

The final part of the package that we received was a download of The Egg-cellent Easter Adventure Program Guide/Curriculum. This is a pdf file filled with ideas and graphics for invitations, decorations, game and activity ideas, snacks, extra story times, discussion questions and coloring pages. I think Easter Saturday would be a great time for a church or group to host a larger scale Easter Egg hunt for their Sunday School or as an outreach, and The Egg-cellent Easter Adventure Program Guide is a super resource. I think this would be awesome as part of an AWANA program near Easter. 
The Egglo Treasures Scripture Scrolls are the perfect size to hide inside the eggs along with a couple of small treats, and are a good reminder of some of the promises of God. I think the scrolls would be cute pinned to a cork board, or turned into magnets as a post-Easter craft. Each one has a different verse based on Scriptures from both the Old and the New Testament. 

Not So Nutty Nitty Gritty 
The prices listed are regular prices, but there is currently a sale on some of the Egglo products, just in time to prepare for Easter! :) There are also a variety of stickers that can be used for decorating the eggs, invitations, or whatever else you might come up with.
