So many creative ways to use glow stick twisters.
balloons half way and quickly slide 2-3 glow sticks inside while tightly
holding the neck of the balloon. These white balloons with glow
sticks inside turn the balloon various colors.
Glow stick Slip ‘N Slide.
Glow sticks were used to create an outline for the Slip ‘N Slide.
Foam noodles make simple arches to hold the glow sticks. Duct tape is an easy way to attach noodles to each other. The skinny cardboard tube the glow sticks came in were used as the “stakes” for the foam noodles. Hammer the cardboard “stakes” in the ground and place the hollow foam noodles over the “stake”. The stakes ended up being about 8 inches tall. Use zip ties to attach glow sticks to the foam arches.
Place a jump rope into a large cup withe the handles outside the cup. Cut open a glow stick and pour contents over the jump rope (depending on glow stick size you might need 3-4). This jump rope was purchased at the Dollar Store and is made out of a cotton-type material. The glow sticks I used are non-toxic. Use your own personal judgment when using chemicals. It is a little stinky but sure fun to jump rope in the dark. I’m not sure if it stains…
Place glow sticks inside water bottles to create a ring toss game. Use connectors (included with glow sticks) to connect glow sticks to create a ring. Duct tape a couple of rings together to create more “substance” for a good toss.
