How cool are these?!?!?!?
My kids were excited to have these in their rooms the other night when they went to bed. Simply fill a small jar with water and then cut open a full size glow stick and pour it in! I haven't tried these with the smaller ones from the dollar store. I'd imagine you'd need a bunch to get the same brighness as one of the thick ones. Break the stick first to activate it and be careful while pouring out the contents. I used some kitchen shears to cut the top off of the glow stick which was a bit tedious, but worked. Gently swish around the water (but do NOT shake) and you're set!
These would look neat lining a driveway or walkway on Halloween! We always seem to end up with a bunch of glow sticks after going trick-or-treating, so we'll be making more of these!
I found my inspiration here.
The smaller jar glowed bright for 2 days.
I used a pint sized an a quart size and used 2 full sized sticks in the quart. The pint sized one seemed to be brighter than the quart sized jar. I bet baby food jars would work GREAT.
Here are some other cool ones I saw on the web! So neat!
