I saw this idea months ago on Pinterest and saved it for just the right occasion. JM and JZ are obsessed with glow sticks (or anything that lights up), and I knew they would love this. Our school theme this week is light, so tonight I broke out the glow sticks. I came upstairs, activated the sticks and ran the bath. After turning out the lights I called the boys in. I didn't tell them I had anything planned. I simply said it was bath time.
I wish I had the video camera on JZ when he walked in. His whole face lit up, and he asked, "How did you get glow sticks in the water?"
JM joined him a few minutes later and was equally delighted. They played for a long time and especially enjoyed beating the shower doors with the "drumsticks".
Thanks Play at Home Mom for the inspiration.
