Why My Freezer Contains Glow Sticks

A friend taught me this trick last year and while it probably would have been good to share¬†this before the 4th of the July, the day after is the best I can do.ūüė̬† If you put glow sticks in the freezer, they last a¬†long time.

I bought red, white, and blue glow stick wands at Dollar Tree for 4th of July last year, and I took the tip from my friend and stuck them in the freezer after we’d used them on the 4th. ¬†My kids would get them out and play with them over the next few evenings, and then put them back in the freezer, and they kept glowing for a long time. ¬†I don’t recall exactly how long, but it was close to a week with repeated usage. ¬†We’re doing it again this year to stretch out the 4th of July fun!

I know some moms might be dying to get¬†rid of glow sticks as soon as possible so I promise I won’t tell this to your kids. ¬†But if you want to prolong the fun, try putting them in your freezer after each use!
