Glow Stick Lanterns

It's been H-O-T! Which means everyone is grumpy & staying up late. We've been coming up with fun projects to do on these warm evenings.
How about making glow stick lanterns?
Easy peasy & so cool!

Take a glow stick, cut the top off and dump the contents into a jar (we used an empty baby food jar). We used just one glow stick ~ next time I'll use 2 or 3 for a bigger impact. The contents are non-toxic but be careful because it will stain your clothing. I spilled one on the counter and it looked like a crazy glowing crime scene. LOL.

Lets the little ones shake them up and now they have their very own glowing lanterns! Since they glow for hours, they also make awesome nightlights.

Have fun!
