Homemade Glowsticks

My 6 year old daughter came up with this idea for homemade glowsticks. She laced some fancy star beads and glow in the dark beads onto pipe cleaners. She made a loop at one end so she could hang them up at night when we are camping.  They came out really pretty.  She plans on charging them up during the day or under a light and they will be ready to go after dark (and reusable!).    


  1. What a clever idea. Now to look for large glow in the dark beads. Thank you.

  2. We bought them awhile ago from michaels craft store. You could always use glow in the dark paint in other beads.

  3. What a wonderful idea, my kids would enjoy it for sure. I am adding it to my Rainy Day Pinterest board! Have a wonderful weekend!!
