We had the best time last night hunting for Glow in the Dark Halloween candy. It was so much fun to watch my teenager (who thankfully never wants to grow up) and younger kids giggle and race around the back yard trying to find Halloween Candy Bags.

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. There response…”Wait. Candy, glowing candy, on a school night. We get to hunt for candy, in the backyard?”…Yesssaaa!

 Needless to say, they were all in!

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!

  • Halloween Treat Bags – I love these simple bags with a fun Halloween picture on the front and completely white on the back. The glow sticks really shine right through them. I think I found them at the Dollar Tree
  • Twist Ties – they usually come with the bags
  • Glow bracelets – enough for each bag
  • Halloween Candy
  • *optional bags for kids to hold their bags in as they hunt for more

Here are my top Amazon Picks for this Glow in the Dark Halloween Candy Hunt Idea for Kids!

Instructions:

  • Before sunset, activate your glow bracelets, add the connector to form a bracelet
  • Place the activated glow bracelet into the bags
  • Place one or more pieces of candy in each bag
  • Twist tie the bag to secure them
  • When it gets dark or just before dark, hide the bags around the yard
  • After it gets nice and dark outside, explain to the kids that this game is a lot like an Easter Egg hunt
  • They should gather as many glowing bags as they can and hold onto them or if you gave them big bags to hunt with, they can collect them in their bags
  • Of course, once finished, 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!
