Fun with Glow Sticks



Mid-autumn festival came and went and I’d totally forgotten about getting lanterns for the kids.  We didn’t even bother going downstairs that night.  Well, to be fair, we did entertain that thought for a minute, but then the cousins were online and J wanted to Skype with them. Z suggested that we simply turn off all the lights in the house so that she could have some fun with the glow sticks.  I was all for anything that would just keep us in the air-conditioned coolness and not be outside in the warmish, breezeless outdoors.

She connected the glow sticks, made different shapes, then started twirling and shaking them this way and that, making for some really cool effects.   This one below was made with one big giant loop of different glow sticks.  She held down one end with her foot and twisted it this way and that, creating an infinity symbol when it intersects in the middle. (The bottom bit is just the reflection of the light on our floor. Photo taken with my S6, unedited.)

Playing with glow sticks sounds way more fun than humidity. Our weather here is pretty mild at the moment but I am not looking forward to the next few months as the humidity builds.
