Summer Fun #86: Glow Stick Man

photo by Denise Toth
Here is a fun thing you can do on hot summer nights. Get a friend and help each other tape glow sticks all over your body to represent the main bones of the body. Use clear tape so that the glowsticks show through. Finish it off by making a circle with the glowsticks and putting that around your head. It takes about 60 glowsticks to do this project.

As it gets dark, glowing stick men appear!
You can have lots of fun making your stickmen do all sorts of fun things as you bend and move your body around. I really should have made a video of this as the boys really had fun thinking of clever things the stickmen could do!

This also would make a fun and inexpensive Halloween costume.


  1. We saw a little kid this winter, at a night frisbee event, with something like this built into his snowsuit. He looked so funny running across the field. Never thought to try it with glow sticks - can't wait to show the kids!

  2. Oh this is so cool!! I have got to replicate this!!

  3. This is brilliant in every sense of the word :)

  4. I am so doing this!


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment. It means so much.
