Glow Stick Fun

Biscuit loves glow sticks, what munchkin doesn't?! I decided to try something new and I made a glow stick "peg board."


I used a piece of cardboard (from an Amazon box, where else?) and cut out small circular holes that would fit our glow sticks. Biscuit was so excited to see this little contraption. She pulled the sticks out of the holes and stuck them back in over and over again. Next time I will use something stronger than cardboard, it held up okay but it was on its last leg by the time she was through.






Then Biscuit took all of the sticks out of the board and began to sort them by color. Eventually the sticks found their way to her cloud dough bin and finally her bath tub. Much to her dismay we wouldn't allow her to take the glow sticks to bed. ;)



Cue Tiesto ;)






Do you have any fun ideas for glow sticks? Please share them!

Happy Playing & Exploring!!

    Also, I don't have a blog post about it, but glow sticks in balloons create an exciting atmosphere. :)

    Great idea in the cloud dough. We'll have to try it!
