With the nights drawing in for Autumn, and the clocks going back next week meaning that it will get dark really early – why not brighten up your evenings with a little glow stick fun.
My kids love glow sticks – I don’t know many who can fail to get excited by things that glow!
Since you can buy packs in the pound shop (dollar store), or cheaply in the supermarkets – it’s a really easy and cheap way to make some magical memories with the kids. They’re a great item to have available for sensory play all year round.
I’ve gathered together some fun suggestions of different ways to play with glow sticks.
