Light Up Your Next Party!
I was given two cylinders full of light sticks as a gift last year, and I have had the best time using them up!
Just in case you might not know what I’m talking about…light sticks are thin plastic sticks filled with a liquid that glows after you snap and shake them. Light sticks are sold at amusement parks and you can find them for about a dollar at retail stores in the discount or party sections.
I used the first cylinder of colored sticks at a birthday party for a friend. I brought the sticks along with a bottle of wine, and everyone chose sticks and bent them into bracelets, necklaces, and silly headgear (light sticks come with connectors that enable them to be strung together or in a circular shape).
The second set of light sticks was used during our Halloween party last month. I put the sticks out on our large buffet and encouraged guests to pick some up as they got a drink or snacks to munch on.
Every time I have used these light sticks, they have been a hit! I haven’t had the opportunity to take them outdoors (on a camping trip or to an outdoor concert), but I’m sure they would be fun there too!
I love the creativity and laughs that these cheap little sticks bring out in our friends. Look for a cylinder yourself — they are a fun way to add some pizazz to your next party!
