Glow Stick Fun

A few years ago, right before I was put on bed rest I worked a Parents Night Out at my school. I had given the kiddos glow sticks to play with and they had a blast when we turned out the lights. Being able to run around a classroom at night, in the dark, proved to be a hit. At the end of the night one of the parents mentioned to me how they will put a bunch of  glow sticks in the bath tub and let their daughter take a ” glow in the dark” bath.

I was recently reminded of this fun activity thanks to Pinterest and then I saw some glow sticks at Target in the $1 section.

Kaili has been less than impressed with bath time lately so I thought I would give it a try. Only drawback is A. now with the time change, it’s still sunny at 6:00 p.m and B. we have a skylight in our bathroom so it wasn’t very dark but she didn’t mind. She had a blast. I was impressed that she didn’t try to chew on them, she had more fun using them as drumsticks. Her bath lasted almost 30 minutes, that is about 25 minutes longer than normal.

After her bath they still proved to be a hit. She stayed up a little later than normal and that is just fine with me.
