Glow Party Games

Thanks to the wonderful resources over at Pinterest, we have put together our top 5 glowing DIY Party games and activities to keep you and your family entertained.

We love anything we can add a bit of glow power to, and we especially love getting creative with the kids, recycling household items and keeping the whole family entertained as we make and play, spending quality time together and using our dexterity and hand-eye coordination skills, giving little minds a much needed break from the digital and technological world.

So if you find yourself with some spare time and a heap of glow sticks, check out the following ideas:

Shout out to Dazzle.com for some really wonderful kiddie crafts, and this one is one of our favourites - so simple to do that even toddlers can take part in setting up the game. Its great for parties, and all you need is some 8 inch Glow Stick Bracelets and some empty plastic bottles. Mix it up with a variety of different sized bottles to add a tricky twist to the game. You can add a prize too... maybe pop a sweet next to the bottle as an incentive to hook it, or give a small prize for 3 winning hooks.

Who doesn't love Tic Tac Toe? Probably one of the most popular quick games you can play - and yes, you've guessed it.... you can make it glow with glow sticks!

We found a lovely little post on Pinterest - you can use our 22 inch Glow Stick Necklaces to make the grid, or connect 2 or 3 of our 8 inch Bracelets to make a longer stick, and use two different coloured glow stick bracelets to make the counters. Easy Peasy!

This is a great, novel idea and its a brand new one to us! All you need to take part is a bundle of glow stick bracelets, a large space like a back garden or a park, and the dark (not too dark!). You can either can follow the these guys' tutorial here or you can play the traditional game of tag, with all players wearing 2 or 3 glow stick bracelets - and when the person who is "it" tags a person, they give the person who was tagged one of their bracelets and that person it "it". The winner is the first one to run out of Bracelets. Alternatively you can add your own spin on it and make up your own winning rules and tactics.

With this idea you can create other games and activities to extend the fun. Yes, you can just go all out with an evening water fight (wellies and waterproofs are a good idea if the evenings are still a bit chilly), or how about setting up a stocks for an evening charity fundraiser? If you want to have a bit of good old fashioned fun with the kids, you can make your self a target board, and use the water balloons to hit the target - this is a perfect game for the garden and camping. We are sure there are loads of ways you can have fun with this idea as the sun starts to set on warm Summer evenings.

We hope that this fun, quick and simple glowing crafts will help bring a bit of fun to your evenings and beat the boredom while the kids are of school over Easter and the Summer holidays, or just to bring some family and friends quality time together. These ideas can be adapted for children's parties, adults parties, garden parties and beach parties.

Have fun!!
