To meet one of my monthly goals for January, I put together some glow in the dark musical instruments for my family to play with. My kids received a number of musical instruments for Christmas and I was inspired to use them with the pack of glow sticks that I picked up at Michael’s Craft Store. There seems to be an endless basket of dollar glow sticks that have been taunting me for months at that store, so I finally threw some in my cart. I’m so glad that I did because it inspired a beautiful jam session with my family!
Then, I threw an LED light underneath our drum (you could use a pop light or try glow sticks), wrapped a glow stick on each drum stick with a fuzzy stick, and we began our glow in the dark jam session!
You can see my husband playing the drum here and my daughter shaking her wrists alongside him. It was a blast! Since my daughter loves to dance, I added some of the bracelets to her ankles. It was incredible. The moves that she made up were amazing!
How do you come together with your family after a long day?
In full disclosure, I received some of these craft materials for free from Craft Project Ideas. Although they provided me with some materials, all of the ideas and opinions on this page are my own. Regardless, I love checking out their website because they have great materials and ideas all in one place! You can find them here on Facebook, Pinterest, and Twitter.
