Glowsticks are everywhere in our house! We love them but we never usually open them...until now!
To make a jar of fireflies all you need is a jar of any size,thin glowsticks and glitter
Use scissors to cut the end off a glowstick, do this over a bin as it is messy and glowsticks do contain glass fragments so best to do this away from children. Open a glass jar and shake the opened glowstick into the jar. Banging it against one side of the jar to the other will give a splattered effect. I used three glowsticks in my big jar in different colours. Then add some sprinkle glitter into the jar, trying to get it to stick on the sides over the glowstick fluid.
Tighten the lid or silicone it closed if using these with younger children. These will last 6-8 hours so we did ours in the afternoon and then used them as nightlights at bedtime while the children read stories about fireflies. Great for camping or sleepovers too!
