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:

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!

You could also utilize one of our previous ideas and add some wacky ‘Super Spaghetti Glow Balloons‘ to the pool for your Glow Stick Pool Party!

Glow in the Dark Easter Egg Hunt!

Previously, we have discussed putting mini glow sticks into plastic easter eggs to make them glow! In this article we look at a couple other bright ideas for your next big glowing Easter egg hunt!

Let’s start with brightening up the hunting fields a little by spattering the grounds with some fun glowing decorations!  One easy do-it-yourself glow craft idea that works great for Easter egg hunts is a bunch of Glowing Toadstools! Simply wrap some mid-sized glow sticks with paper and tissue and shape the top part into simple mushroom shapes. These wonderful little glowing toadstools will create a fun glowing effect throughout your entire Easter egg search area!

Glow Toadstools

4″ Glow Sticks with Stands are recommended to use for these glowing mushrooms due to the plastic stand that comes with them. (however any type of 4″ or 6″ glow sticks will work just fine)

Another fun way to brighten up the hunting fields is to add some fun glowing flower and butterfly decorations throughout the area. Use your imagination and create your own glow creations as well!

Glowing Decorations

Circular glow connectors and glow bracelets will allow you to create these fun and unique glowing decorations. The center of the glow stick circular connector also has a small hole so you can use a small tack, nail or even string to attach your decorations to nearby trees, fence posts or hang them around.

Now that we have a beautiful glowing easter egg hunting ground, everybody will have a bright time hunting for those glowing Easter eggs among a field of glowing mushrooms and flowers!

Glowing Easter Eggs

As we’ve mentioned before, Miniature Glow Sticks work perfectly for placing inside of standard plastic Easter eggs. For a slightly brighter glow (and a little bit more work) you can also use Glow Bracelets and some string or an elastic band to ‘clump’ the glow bracelet in a folded manner and place that within the plastic Easter eggs. This may work better for larger style plastic eggs.

Also be sure to decorate your hunters (and their baskets) with a variety of Glow Bracelets, Glowing Glasses and Glowing Bunny Ears! This Glow Craft and Glow Party Pack comes with a fun variety of glow accessories perfect for highlighting your Easter Egg hunting party!

Happy Hunting!

Glow Party Decorations – Glowing Treat Ideas!

Glow Sticks in a Birthday Cake Liven up your party with glowing party snacks and treats! Here we will highlight a couple simple additions for your standard birthday and party snack treats that will surely make them shine!

How about adding some simple glow sticks to your cakes and cupcakes for a wonderful glowing treat! Or use looped glow necklaces to wrap around a food platter for a glowing cupcake display.

GlowSticksCupCakeDisplay

 

Note: If you plan to use glow sticks in any edible products, it is always best to choose a higher quality brand of glow sticks. We find that the best choice for cupcakes and cake displays are glow bracelets. When purchasing glow bracelets, be sure to check that the thickness of the glow bracelet is at least 5-6mm in thickness or larger. This is to ensure that you receive no cracked or leaking glow bracelets. It is always advisable to clean the glow sticks with warm water and soap prior to placing into any edible food items.

GlowSticksInABirthdayCakeAnother really easy addition to any snack bar is a big bowl of glowing candy! Simply add a few glow sticks to the bottom of a bowl and fill it with delicious gummy candies. The glow effect will shine through the gummies to create a cool and fun lighted candy bowl! Again, be sure to wash your glow sticks with warm water and soap prior to placing in the bowl.

GlowingGummyCandies

Are you planning on making some homemade cotton candy for your party? What about adding an extra something to your candy floss by making it glow! Simply use large glow sticks or LED light sticks as handles for your cotton candy floss and make your party the brightest ever! Battery operated light sticks might be best suited for this one since you can turn them off and have them prepared before the party and not worry about your ‘glow running out’ before the party even starts!

Glow Sticks Ceiling Fan

 

Here is a fresh idea for a cool lighting trick for your next glow party. Tape Glow Sticks or LED Light Sticks to a ceiling fan and just let it go! Just make sure the glow sticks are attached very securely by using tape or string and not the pre-attached clips otherwise they may break loose. We also recommend using higher quality glow sticks and not novelty brands to avoid any leaks.

Here are some fun videos of this cool light effect in action:
