Flashlight + Glowsticks = Bathtime Fun!

Flashlight + Glowsticks = Bathtime Fun!

On one of those common occasions where a bath was less than attractive to O, I lured him with the promise of a flashlight bath. We turned out the lights, turned on the flashlight, and threw in some glow sticks for extra excitement. This is now a go-to activity when bath time just isn't cutting it.

Ages:
2 - 9
Est. Time:
<30 mins

How we did it:

Materials List

  1. flashlight
  2. glow sticks
  1. First they were "glow worms."

  2. Then we experimented with shaking them really fast to create special effects.

  3. We got caught in a lasso.

  4. And even got an early start on the Olympic rings. Warning: While this activity makes it easier to get them IN the bath, it doesn't help with other problem--getting your kiddo out!
