Ready for the your final summer party? All of your friends have taken turns to throw their own bash and now it’s your turn. The only issue is, everyone’s hosted ‘just another party’, you want to do something unique. Be it a BBQ, pool party, or just the good old fashion house party, adding a touch of glow to your shindig is just the edge you’re looking for.
Glow sticks, glow necklaces, and body lights are inexpensive additions to any social gathering. The added flare of cool flashing broaches and neon colored necklaces will give your party the edge in design and uniqueness. There are countless of applications for glow sticks ranging from simple jewelry wear; create new or accent your existing games; even use your glow sticks underwater for brilliant glows. Play ring toss with necklaces, hide and seek with some glow sticks, or ‘create your own’ glow shape. Coordinate teams or even wine glasses with specific colors, the uses never end (well maybe they do at some point.)
Obviously, you’re looking at an evening party or something indoors since the devices don’t do much in terms of brilliance for the midday picnic. However, glow sticks are perfect for those parties that extend into the wee hours of the morning. Did you know that most glow necklaces last for over 6 hours and usually double that time depending on the environment and quality? Most party favours don’t last beyond the party anyways, so why not offer your guests something unique?
Having trouble getting the conversation started? People will surely be talking about the cool colours in the yard and around their neck with glow product. Maybe you want something more specific for a particular event. It’s someone’s birthday, thanksgiving, or even the Forth of July, you can get specific body lights for the occasion. Body lights are pins/broaches that attach to your clothes and flash cool lights when you turn them on. There’s one for every occasion so don’t feel as if you’re party is left out!
You can’t make glow rings at home (since the chemicals, albeit safe, are not available to the average consumer.) These products glow because of a chemical reaction called “Chemiluminescence”. The chemical reaction occurs when the seal of one chemical is broken and mixes with the other inside the plastic device. Don’t worry though, these particular chemicals are non-toxic and 100% safe (I would recommend eating them though.) The liquid can stain clothing and other material so handle broken necklaces with caution.
Forget about giving out glow sticks and necklaces out as prizes. Give your guest’s the chance to experience and enjoy the attributes of glow light together rather than on the drive home. Make your next party unique and memorable by adding lights and glow sticks to the mix. Your friends will thank you for hosting the best event of the summer!
As the day for trick or treating approaches, the idea of safety should be on the minds of all, especially parents of small children.
You may not know this, but the United States Department of Transportation has issued statistics, which demonstrate that the majority of fatal collisions between motor vehicles and young pedestrians (under 15 years of age) happen most frequently between 4 p.m. and 8 p.m. (i.e., during trick or treating hours!)
Also, 84% of deaths among young pedestrians occurred at non-intersection locations (indicating children are most likely to dart and dash from mid-block into the street).
Halloween also sees more than its share of automobile accidents because of the number of parties that take place (with alcohol being consumed).
Shockingly, of all the highway fatalities that take place on Halloween, approximately two-thirds of them are alcohol related.
These are certainly sobering numbers and may have you thinking about staying home instead of exposing your children to any harm.
However, by exercising some good common sense, everything will be just fine.
After reviewing the previously mentioned statistics, as well as a number of websites devoted to Halloween safety, I compiled the following list of tips, which I hope that everyone will follow.
For a safe and enjoyable trick or treating experience-
-Don’t let the excitement of Halloween allow your children to ignore the normal safety precautions: look both ways before crossing the street; cross in a crosswalk or at a corner (do not walk into the street between parked cars); walk on the sidewalk; do not talk to strangers; do not go into homes or cars of people they do not know; and do not approach animals they do not know.
-Make sure children know their name, phone number and address and to provide this information to a police officer in an emergency or if they are lost.
-Younger children should have an adult with them while older children should provide their route and when they expect to return. If possible, provide a cell phone for your children.
-Children should only visit homes that have their porch lights on.
-Inspect your children’s candy before they eat it. Although food tampering is rare, it’s safest to eat only those candies that are individually wrapped and not homemade, unless you know the families who have prepared the homemade treats.
-Have flashlights or glowsticks for children and/or for the accompanying adult.
-Adults are reminded not to drink alcohol and drive. In fact, it is safest to save the cocktails until after everyone is safe at home.
When selecting costumes for the little ones:
-Make sure your child’s Halloween costume is made with fire retardant materials and has eye holes large enough for your child to safely see out of. The costume should be short enough so it doesn’t interfere with walking.
-If your child carries an accessory, such as a fake sword, make sure it is made from a flexible material such as rubber, so it cannot injure your child or others.
-Provide a costume that uses bright color or use reflective tape, so your child can be seen clearly by drivers and other trick-or-treating families.
-Consider using makeup on children?s faces instead of a mask to allow the child to see clearly.
If all of these tips are followed, then everyone will have a much safer and ultimately enjoyable Halloween.
