After a couple of school parties and my own trips to the 99 cent store to buy Halloween accessories, we had quite a few handfuls of glow sticks last year that I guilty tossed in the trash on November 1.
I really don’t like dumping plastic into the garbage but what can you do when it’s filled with glowing chemicals? This year I was determined to find a better use for old glow sticks than landfill fodder, so we UPCYCLED them into colorful DIY bracelets. No one will ever guess there is an old glow stick underneath!
To see how we made these, watch our video on YouTube:
I created this project for Makes & Takes blog. If you haven’t been to Make and Takes it’s an incredible resource of projects for kids and adults, as well as recipes and holiday ideas.
