What to do with 100 glow sticks

Super Bright Longest Lasting Glow Stick Bracelets - 100 Premium Quality Glow Stick Bracelets
TEN ways to use your STIX!

I was so excited to be selected to review a 100 pack of glow sticks, as my sister in law's family has me slightly hooked on the things. They liven up any event by bringing glow sticks for the kids. SMART! Especially when going to large children's event where you know junk will be hocked from all corners. Bring out your own glow sticks and don't worry about your kid wanting to buy every little thing. But ONE HUNDRED glow sticks you say? What can one do with so many?!

1.Pass them out in Boo's birthday party goodie bags

 2. Have Boo bring them to school for each classmate in lieu of Crisco and food coloring filled mini cupcakes

 3. Bring them to Bay Lake Camp, our favorite summer getaway location, and cover the kids with them so we can find them in the cover of night

 4.Give the kids "rave baths" where you turn off the lights and drop a few in the tub.

5. Do what my SIL's favorite blogger did and create a glow in the dark night bowling set out of objects you already have in your house.
6. Repurpose leftover plastic eggs from Easter as lightening bugs as seen on http://www.apartmenttherapy.com/DIY-fireflies-that-really-light-up-147918. Use this as an opportunity to teach your child(ren) about environmental stewardship and the effects of light pollution on the little guys. Review this list of five easy ways to decrease light pollution and identify one or two actions your family can take in the next week


 7. Geek out next February with free printable of Star Wars Valentines complete with "light sabers " from Design Wash Rinse Repeat

8. Knock your blood sugar up a notch with this nutritionless party treat

9.Freak out the neighbors with these winter lawn creatures
An easy-to-make, inexpensive Halloween costume that gets rave reviews and looks fantastic! It's a glow-in-the-dark stick man!
10.  Make a cheap Halloween costume like this one from HubPages featured on Pinterest

AND DON'T FORGET to put those sticks in the freezer at the end of the night. They just may last another!

So, what would you do with your glow sticks?
