Updated on July 23, 2014

Light up the dark the cool way

This page includes How to make an Easy glow in the dark lantern. Or If you are looking for cute, funny or spooky battery operated lanterns or torches for kids then look no further. These cute kids lanterns are so much fun! and any kid will love them, no matter what time of year.

Little Explorers will just love these cool lanterns and torches for all their expeditions.

Little children and Mums love these battery powered lamps and torches and tell us "We gave my son a small battery-powered lantern when he was young and a bit afraid of the dark. It was perfect because it was less likely to tip than a bed side lamp, didn't get hot, and was portable and so could be used wherever play or travel took us. Plus, it was handy for us when the electric went out."

Make Your Own Glow in The Dark night lights - Super cool glow in the dark lights for kids

Great for outdoor Parties or for the Kids Sleepovers. This idea is so simple I cannot believe none told me about this before.

Just how easy is it to make your own Glow in the Dark lights!.

We used an old jam (mason) Jar. 1 glow in the Dark stick.

Using Rubber gloves snip the glow in the dark stick at the bottom, squeeze liquid into the Jar, fill with around 5 tea spoons of water and close and tighten lid. Swoosh around the Jar. Take outside and wait for the magic to Happen.

This is a great way if you have a child who is struggling to go to bed and settle, make this fun nightlight for them to take to their bed.

My Daughter did indeed think it was a Jar of Fairies beside her bed.

Really it is that simple, the glow in the dark sticks are of course non-toxic, but I would ensure the lids are on tightly and always use rubber gloves when handling any liquids.

      My son has loved anything that lights up since he was little! We recently got a lantern that has batteries in case of a storm! My son thinks it is his :)

      Kids and Lights, especially at Night! Children love Flashlights and Nightlights, until they realize there is nothing to be afraid of. ;D

      These are great home deco ideas. I love the Witches Cauldren lantern.

      I just love lanterns, especially in the winter months inside.
