::: glow stick delight
One of our homemade musical instruments was filling bottles to different depths with coloured water and then striking them to make a xylophone type of sound. When we saw the idea of using glow sticks to add interest to the bottles we thought we’d give that a go too.
Same great sound …
just a different, fun angle.
We didn’t want to waste the glow sticks so put them to another use – to jazz up some very ordinary balloons for our littlest friend.
and as some funky jewelry for the big fella.
It was interesting trying to blow up the balloons and get the glowsticks in as well!!
The children took them into a darkened room and just loved the slightly spooky experience.
Even with the balloons deflated (as they did overnight), the glow sticks still looked really fascinating!
