The Christmas Light LED Necklaces are fun Christmas Lights you can wear and they can also be used for fun Holiday Crafts!

Here is a fun mini sign (Couple of Inches Tall) used by a local face painter using the Christmas Light Necklace as decorative lighting.


And finally, a couple small branches fell off the Christmas Tree so we picked them up, wrapped a quick bow around them, added some simple Fairy Lights and a Merry Christmas message.

Glowing Pool Party Extreme!

Glow_Pool_Party_Main

Back in 2013 we covered the simple idea of having a ‘Glowing Pool Party with Glow Sticks in a Pool!‘ Today, we want to expand on that with some other great thoughts on how to make your Pool Party truly GLOW!

After posting the original article, we discovered ourselves in a dark backyard with a very dark above ground pool and a small army of kids who did not want to give up the pool party fun just because the sun went down. So we quickly dug into our bag of glow and came up with some fun glow products that kept the pool time going for hours with a whole new level of fun!!

 

GLOW STICKS:

GlowSticksPool

The easiest and most affordable addition to any pool party is of course Glow Sticks. All traditional glow sticks are waterproof, most float and are perfectly safe for use in a pool.

(Note: This includes traditional chem based glow sticks. LED Light Sticks are not all waterproof, you will have to specifically look for waterproof LED Light Sticks. We recommend sticking with classic glow sticks when it comes to the pool party.)

Some common Glow Sticks for pool use include 4 Inch Glow Sticks or 6 Inch Glow Sticks, Glow Bracelets and Glow Necklaces!

 

LED WATERPROOF DECOR LIGHTS with REMOTE:

The greatest addition we came up with were these Waterproof LED Decor Lights that come with a remote control and a whole array of color selection and modes.

By tossing in a couple of these simple Submersible Decor Lights, our pool suddenly came to life with brilliant glowing colors! The kids came up with all sorts of games on their own like Scramble for the Color! The parents kept the remotes and were able to shift colors and turn on Rainbow Color Mode from outside the pool. This is the best option for adding very bright colored lights to any pool that does not have its own lighting.

GLOWING BEACH BALLS with GLOW STICK INSERTS:

GlowingBeachBall_P1

Another great addition to any pool party are of course beach balls, so what better than Beach Balls with Glow Sticks! There are variety of glowing beach balls out there, some come with LED Light Sticks.

As mentioned above about using LED Light Sticks in water , we always suggest to stick with the Beach Balls that come with traditional Glow Sticks as Inserts when using them in water.

Add a few of the these glowing beach balls to the pool and watch the fun glowing action!
