|Glow stick Lanterns|
These glow stick lanterns were fun to make ... but I will warn you. We had one break, while shaking the glow stick. So be careful or be ready for a mess.
|For this project you will need|
Canning jars with lids
|What to do|
Use a pair of sharp scissors to cut off the end of a glow stick and pour the contents of the glow stick into the canning jar. It works best to have the stick down in the jar when you cut it so you won't get the liquid everywhere. We bought glow sticks in several different colors and poured two glow sticks into each jar.
If you have never seen the inside of a glow stick before, there are small pieces of glass floating around in the glowing liquid. Just dump in the jar, put the lid on and let your child roll the stuff around. The liquid will coat the inside of the jar.
After you are done, you can rinse out your jar and use again.
Add your jars for tonight...as you light the way for Trick or Treat!
You are like a pumpkin, too!
Jesus picks you, washes you;
Takes away the slime of sin,
Lets his light of love shine in.
Now you smile with Jesus' light,
Helping make the world more bright!
Light the Way!
