Glow sticks are one of those mysterious toys that keep kids (and adults) entertained for hours. Who knew there were so many fun things to do with them; everything from kid’s crafts to party decor! You can find them at the Dollar Store or Walmart in the party section for really cheap, too. Wait for them to go on sale, and then stock up. With Halloween coming soon, I’ve rounded up 20 of my favorite glow stick ideas and crafts that will have you inspired to go out and have some fun in the dark.
1. Glow Stick Ring Toss
The only thing that could possibly make ring toss more fun is doing it in the dark with glow sticks. You can make a pole out of just about anything, and make your rings as big or as little as you’d like. The necklace glow sticks seem to be the perfect size, but you could also connect a few of the bracelet glow sticks together.
2. Glow Stick Balloons
Fill balloons (white or colored) with glow sticks for an awesome party decoration, or just as a fun past time for the kids. After your balloons are half filled with air, carefully insert a glow stick or two, and then finish blowing them up and tying them off. These would be cool hung upside down from the ceiling!
3. Glow In The Dark Bowling
Water bottles and glow sticks make for perfect glow-in-th-dark backyard bowling pins. Make at least six of these, and use any kind of ball (basketball, soccer ball, etc.) to knock down your glowing pins.
