I've seen a few different pins that use this same idea: break a glow stick, shake the contents into a mason jar, and there you have it.
I decided this would be easy enough to do after a long day of driving and unpacking a car. (Not sure WHAT I was thinking of trying to do ANYTHING today... I almost skipped today!!! But decided to persevere!) :)
That said, this WAS really easy. After all, I had the needed supplies: glow sticks and mason jars.
Braeden and Olivia opted to camp out in the basement tonight. (Braeden's room is upstairs in a finished attic space and with ONE register it gets REALLY hot during the summer at times, and the basement stays VERY cool - in fact it's SO cool that my Thursday night small group of 3 ladies who come over bring sweatshirts and grab throws on the way to sit down because it's so cold!). So I made a lantern for them to use while they went to sleep!
Simply gather supplies...
And cut one end open, then shake into the jar. The inside
is much more "liquid" than I would've guessed seeing all the pins on
this. It didn't turn out quite as "splattered" and a lot pooled in the
bottom... BUT it did glow! The picture looks much more like white
light than it did in person, but it was actually quite colorful.
