My boys discovered I had picked up some glow sticks on my latest trip to Target. They simply had to make one of these lanterns ASAP. It is amazing what joy a couple of glow sticks, some glitter, and a jar can produce.
** In case you are wondering, we used two glow stick bracelets. Cut open both ends and shake carefully into the jar, then add some glitter, put on the lid and give the jar a good shake. Then turn off the lights and enjoy your glowing, sparkling lantern.
