Every year for Halloween I give out candy. Every year for Halloween I eat the candy before Halloween and end up having to buy more. Then I eat that candy and have to buy more again, and so on. I never have leftover candy and it's not because we get a ton of kids knocking on our door. I just have absolutely no willpower. I have even purposely bought candy I don't like so I wouldn't eat it. Guess what? I ate it. Come on, admit it, because I KNOW I'm not alone! Well, this year I was determined to change that pattern and do something different. I wanted it to be fun, so when I saw glow sticks on sale I thought, "Why not? Who doesn't like glow sticks?" Then I realized this year Halloween is on a Saturday and that means kids out after dark. Why not help them be safer by giving them something bright to wear at night? By this time, giving glow sticks as my trick-or-treat give-away was a no brainer. Here's what I did.
Where I Purchased Glow Sticks:
I purchased WHOLESALE PACK of 300 8" LumiSticks (affiliate link with Amazon) for $21.99 and free shipping on orders over $35. They are Non-toxic and they came with connectors so they could be made into necklaces. I purchased so many because I knew I would be using them for other things (Halloween decorations blog post coming soon!).
The 8" LumiSticks can also be purchased in tubes of 100 (affiliate link with Amazon) for $8.99 and free shipping on orders over $35.
