We made glow jars today. Super simple. We used an old baby food jar. (click on photo to enlarge. Sebastian was actually holding it!)
Simply take a glow stick, cut a piece of it off with a sharp knife, and pour contents into a small glass jar. Next I screwed on the lid, and gently rolled it around to spread the gloop.
Then you just take your child into a dark room and let them play!
Sebastian loved twirling it around and creating light shows. Skylar mentioned it would be a cool light in her bedroom, so that's where it stayed after Sebastian was finished.
My only complaint would be, I bought cheap clearanced Glo Sticks. This meant the color wasn't as bright as it could have been, and didn't last very long at all. Next time I will try to get better quality Glow Sticks. BUT the upside was: the kids didn't notice. They simply swirled them around in the dark and played and laughed. What more could you really ask for?
