These are so,easy to make and so clever too. And since these glow sticks on,ya last a few hours, you don't need to go to,great expense to make sure the project lasts. Tape is used on black paper but doesn't show once the sticks are glowing in the dark. I am thinking it would be an on the spot project since it would be hard to activate the sticks once taped down. These would look so,pretty at a party displayed around a patio,or garden at night! Super idea!

What a cute idea! I think this is a great craft idea that kids of all ages will love.

Fun to make and put up on your bedroom walls. When the lights go off you can looks at beautiful creatures on your walls. Kind of soothing in the dark.

Simple and easy idea my daughter can make with her friends. They all would love to hang these in their room and watch them glow at bedtime!
