Last week, the kids and I were sitting at the dining room table playing with a fresh batch of homemade play dough when out of no where, Bryson asks if we can have a glow stick party later that night. Unsure of exactly what a “glow stick party” consisted of, I agreed anyways because we keep glow sticks on hand. I didn’t think anything else of it until Bryson asked again while we were eating dinner that night.
That was all it took.
After dinner, Justin gathered up our glow stick party kit and went to work. This glow stick party kit on Amazon is very similar to what we used, but I bought ours at Hobby Lobby. Justin created sunglasses, rabbit ears, necklaces, bracelets, etc. He kept going until he had used all of our glow sticks. (Great stocking stuffer idea!)
Then, we turned off all of the lights and turned up the music. Bryson and Bella LOVED it. For the next hour or so, we did nothing but dance, laugh, and play. When bedtime came, the kids went to sleep holding tight to their glow sticks.
We created some fun memories, definitely burned a few calories, and enjoyed quality family time. It’s a great way to beat cabin fever this winter. Throw a glow stick party! I still have no idea where Bryson came up with the glow stick party idea, but I’m sure glad he did!
