Glow in the Dark Glass Jars for Camping or Patio Parties

We're gearing up for a summer camping trip and here's a fun way to add a subtle glow to the evening.  It's easy & inexpensive.

Here's what you'll need:

Glass jars. The jars that I used are a Ball canning jar (orange), Mayonnaise jar (green) & a pickle jar (blue).
Disposable gloves
2 Glow sticks per jar

How To:

It's best to prepare this project on the ground or a paper lined table. You can expect a little spillage.

  1. Snap the glow stick in multiple locations to activate it.

1. Place gloves on hands
2. Place glow stick part way into the jar.  Take scissors and snip in numerous places. Allow the glow stick pieces to fall to the bottom of the jar.

3. Place lid on the jar and shake pieces thoroughly.
4. Remove lid and discard glow stick pieces

                 The glow will last for about one hour.

         Do you have a fun camping tip? I would love
                             to hear about it!
