We had fun with flashlights, and then Isaac came home from a friends birthday party with some glow stick bracelets. Can I say overwhelming excitement for both my almost 3 year old and my 1 year old! Yes I can, glow sticks.
They loved them!
If you have a Dollar Tree near you, I would highly recommend picking up a package of glow sticks. They are worth the dollar investment for some memorable indoor fun!
Here are some of the things we did with our glow sticks in the dark:
For little kids (under 2):
-necklaces and bracelets
-waving a glow stick back and forth
-drop the glow sticks and let the little one pick them up
For preschoolers (2-4):
-hide and seek with the glow sticks. And adult hides the glow sticks around a dark room, then lets the child finds them.
-make a ring out of glow sticks and twirl it on your wrist. How long can you keep it going?
-Lay the glow sticks in a row. Can you walk next to them without falling?
What other glow stick ideas do you have?
