Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

For many years our family would have a huge neighborhood party on the 4th with tons of glow sticks for the kids and lights on the trees and candles and sparklers. Wish I would have known about this cool project back in the day, as they say! I think it would be such a fun activity during the day, then to display and put the kids' handiwork to use and display at night! Fun ideas!
