Glow sticks are, perhaps, the best 99 cents I can spend for my children. They never, ever get tired of them. Ever. So imagine their surprise when I turned a couple of glow sticks into a glowing jar to bring a little light to their bedtime routine.
Things you’ll need:
Jars with tightly fitting lids
Things to do:
1. Crack the glow sticks well so that they start to glow.
2. Holding the glow sticks upright over a garbage can, cut the top 1/4 inch off of each tube.
3. Tip the glow sticks into the jar, holding them just off the bottom of the glass.
4. Use the shears cut the top end off of each tube, allowing the gel to drip into the jars.
5. Seal the jars well and shake to distribute the gel around the jar.
While the liquid in glow in the dark bracelets is non-toxic, it’s best to do this for the kids so that they don’t come into contact with the gel.
