Schoolhouse Review: Egglo Entertainment

logotrademark_zps7f88b819With Easter around the corner this review came at a perfect time! Who wouldn’t have fun with a glow in the dark egg hunt from Egglo Entertainment?!?!?

The theme Bible verse is John 1:5: The light [of Jesus] shines in the darkness and the darkness has not overcome it.
Egglo Eggs
For this review we received:

My kids loved the Egglo Eggs. They thought it was so neat that they glowed!!! We’ve never had glowing eggs before.

Unfortunately my camera does not take good pictures of things in the dark.
Egglo Eggs
The plastic eggs are nice and sturdy, they snap together easily. To really get them glowing you want to put them under a lamp, this is what I did and they glowed for a good while. I put them on my son’s desk and pointed his lamp over the eggs.

The Egg-cellent Easter Adventure softcover book is about three children, Anastasia, Hardy, and their cousin Pascal. They find an glowing egg in the attic.

The children are all clamoring and trying to be the first to touch the egg (not thinking about each other). When all three of them touch it the egg opens and releases two scrolls. One has a Bible verse and the other a clue.
Eggo Scrolls
Once they figure out the clue they are whisked away on an adventure which teaches them to be strong and courages (Joshua 1:9), be wise and listen to advice (Proverbs 12:15), how God loved the world that he sent his son to die (John 3:16), and how the light shines in the darkness (John 1:4-5). The greatest treasure of all is Jesus!
Egglo Egg Hunt
The light of the eggs represents Jesus being the light of the world. They learned the true meaning of Easter. It’s about Jesus’ resurrection and how he conquered sin and death and saved us. 

They also learn how to treat each other with kindness.

The Egglo Program Guide includes fund ideas like snacks, decorating, and activities. There are ideas for churches and Co-ops too.

Also included are coloring pages, invitations that can be copied, and stickers too. All you need to do is buy the blank sticker pages so you can make copies from your home or at a local print shop.
Additional Resources
The Adventure Audio Book can be used to have a child follow along or just listen and enjoy. If one would like to follow along there is a que chime to let the child know when to turn the page.

The narrator Dick Wells will keep the children captivated with his cheerful and animated voice. He even makes a donkey sound which which my kids and I thought was cute!

How we used it: First of all I wanted to write that I really grateful to use this before Easter. It seems like Easter is all of a sudden upon us and I’m rushing to put something together. Because of this each year I tell myself that I’ll teach about the resurrection a few weeks before Easter but it never happens.

Thankfully this year I had Egglo Entertainment to help me accomplish teaching and talking about Resurrection Sunday before it arrived.
I spent a four days reading about how Jesus died and rose again from the books: Mathew, Mark, Luke, and John. The children would color one of pages I printed from the Program Guide.

On the 5th day I read The Egg-cellent Easter Adventure.
Egglo Questions
After the story we had our egglo-hunt. I put a scripture scroll and a question (from the curriculum guide) in each egg. We discussed the verse and the question. We also talked about how Jesus is the light of the world.

Final thoughts; we really enjoyed the story. The book was colorful and kept the attention of my children ages 15, 14, 13, 12, 11, and 9. The glowing eggs where a hit, more so with my 11 and 9 year old boys.

With the Program Guide I would have loved to have seen some type of schedule like Monday read Mathew, color such and such page, and make xyz craft, Tuesday read, ask questions, color, etc. I’m the type of homeschooling mama that likes things scheduled out and I can tweak from there.

If you are looking for a fun way to teach about Easter I’d recommend using Egglo Entertainment.
You can find Egglo Entertainment on:
The recommended age for this is 4-13 but it can be adapted for younger children as well. The book might be too long in one sitting for a child 4 years old and under.
