By disconnecting glow stick necklaces, you can bend and shape them into glasses. Who wouldn’t want to wear glow in the dark shades?

3. Use them in pumpkins.

Putting a glow stick inside of a pumpkin is the perfect way to give your Halloween creation a colorful glow!

Purchase a cotton jump rope and glow sticks. Break the glow sticks open, pour the liquid over the jump rope and viola, you have a glowing jump rope!

5. Glow stick tic-tac-toe

Tic-tac-toe can be made even more exciting by using glow sticks as the x’s and o’s as well as the board itself.

No one is ever too old for a night time Easter egg hunt! Put glow sticks inside of Easter eggs, wait for the sun to go down, and have a blast! Makes for a great nighttime scavenger hunt game, too! No need to wait for Easter to come back around! Check out this great tutorial over at The Mommy Files.
