Normally, I’m horrible at surprises and secrets! I get too excited and I just have to express my excitement. Christmas is WAY hard for me. That is how I was with this idea – super excited! But, I held it together. I waited until dark and dinner was done before I told the kids about my idea of hunting Halloween Candy at night. Wait. Candy, glowing candy, on a school night, we get to hunt for candy, in the backyard?…Yesssaaa!

I had to contain them on the back patio until I yelled go! They were spotting stuff glowing in the grass and it was feeding the excitement. It was like “Releasing the Kraken” when I finally let them run into the night and grab glowing bags! So fun! 

 

And, it’s so super simple to pull this together. You’ll have this fun family time ready to go in minutes!

Instructions:

  • A few hours before sunset, activate your glow bracelets, add the connector to form a bracelet
  • Place one in each bag with a piece of candy
  • Twist tie the bag to secure them
  • When it gets dark or just before dark, hide the bags around the yard
  • After dark, let the kids hunt for the glowing Halloween bags. Of course they will immediately dump out the candy and trading will commence. You know the drill! 
  • *I made sure that there was an even amount per kid and told them before the hunt that they were each allowed to find a certain number of bags. Once they found their max. they had to stop, so there was enough for each kid to find and they all had an even amount of candy

Happy Halloween!
