When I think about the things that remind me of summer, I can’t help but have glow sticks come to my mind. What is it about glow sticks that make them so much fun? Maybe it’s that they glow in the dark. Or it could be that just wearing them makes you smile. Whatever the case, I really don’t think you are ever too old to enjoy them with your family and friends, so today I’m sharing a round up of my favorite glow stick activities!
As you scroll through, you’ll find that many of these activities can be done both indoors and outdoors which makes it easy to enjoy glow in the dark glow stick fun year round! A word of caution: If you have little ones who like to put things in their mouth, please be careful. The packaging says that adult supervision is recommended and that glow sticks are for ages 3+.

Corn Hole Tape glow sticks around the hole and at the sides, top and bottom so you can keep playing at night!
Red Light, Green Light Remember this game as a kid? Just grab a red and green glow stick and let the kids play this childhood favorite after it gets dark by having your child hold up the glow stick to indicate stop and go.
Dance Party We’ve done this with our kids in the wintertime in our basement, but how fun would this be at your next BBQ or watching fireworks!
Glow Sticks in the Pool Keep the fun going at your pool party by throwing some glow sticks in! This would be fun to do in a kiddie pool as well on those hot summer nights (just keep a close eye out!).

Freeze Tag Another favorite kid game! Have your kids wear glow sticks around their necks, wrists and ankles so they can see each other and let the fun begin.
Capture the Flag One team wears one color and the other team wears another so you know who’s who.
Bath time Another fun activity you can do year round with your kiddos. They’ll love playing with their glow sticks in the bath tub! (We’ve also done glow in the dark bath paint using a black light and it’s so much fun! You can find the post here.)
