I received products in exchange for this post, but I've also purchased these products from Oriental Trading many times in the past. All opinions are my own.
Summer nights are when some of my favorite memories are made. Bonfires, fireworks, camping and fun family celebrations make for a great time with the kids.
Having eight children can be a challenge at times. One of the major challenges we face, especially when out in an open space, is keeping an eye on all of our kids. They are all still fairly young, the oldest being 11, and we still need to know where they are. At night, we always make sure that they are wearing something to make them easy to see.
Glow-sticks, necklaces, and bracelets are great ways to help keep the kids visible and they LOVE them.
We get our glow products from OrientalTrading.com since their selection is HUGE and their prices are great. We've gotten a ton of things from them, but my recommendation is to go for the premium glow products (they glow brighter and longer).
We go to about 6 fireworks displays per year, and purchasing these glow products before hand makes our trip a lot more fun, and less expensive. These sell for about $5 per necklace if you purchase them at the park for the fireworks display. That's $40 for our family of eight children! By purchasing these in advance we get 50 necklaces for under $40. Another great reason to get your own... they'll likely be different than what is available, then you can spot your children easier.
Aside from making children visible glow products are just plain fun. Night-time games of field tag, hide and seek, and dancing make for great entertainment.
