Fun Alternative Glow Stick Crafting Projects and Uses
Glow sticks have been around for quite some time and you may think of them as mystical (which you can read more about how they work here) little tubes of light; best left to children, campers, or even helpers for disaster relief. What you may not know is that these luminous little gadgets can actually be used to liven up your next gathering. Whether you’re young or old, they can still be entertaining today, and there are other things to do with them besides swing them around and watch the light trails. As a child I remember being so amazed by how a small unimpressive-looking object like a glow stick could shine so bright, and the feeling of the subtle cracking and popping sound made when you bend it the first time; then hours of running around with my brothers and sister ensued - waving them around, pretending they were lightsabers. We may have been dorky, but you couldn’t say we didn’t have an imagination. Thankfully there are some fun ideas that incorporate glow sticks and can add a nice accent to your next party or event.
