Glow Stick RingToss

Glow Sticks

What to do with those multiplying glow sticks after they’re done glowing? I hate throwing them in the garbage and cringe when I see P has come home with more in a birthday party goody bag. I thought of one way to re-purpose them today (though I need more ideas to keep up with them as the come in the house) that also reuses a few things from the recyclable bins. It also happens to be a fun activity to keep P happy during the Super Bowl. all afternoon and into the Super Bowl. He’s been hanging on me begging me to play with him ever since I finished Glow Stick Ring Toss.

I started by cleaning up plastic containers in different sizes.

I cut several colors of paper to size and gave each one a point value. Then  I fastened them to the bottles with tape and weighted them with rocks (decorative Dollar Tree rocks left over from another project).

An old Build-a-Bear box makes for perfect storage. You could fancy the box and bottles up as much or as little as you like. My son cares nothing for anything but point value, of course, so I stuck to the basics.
