Water Bead Night Light Jars

This post may contain affiliate links.

First, we had fun learning about the science of water beads and then we made these:

Water beads and glow sticks in jars equals a fun night light.  We bent glowsticks in half and put them in a small mason jar, then filled them with water beads and put the lid on.

I’ve seen several versions of this on Pinterest, using glowing gel or LED lights. Wouldn’t a row of these look pretty lining a walkway at night? Or as decorations for a party?

Although water beads are non-toxic, they should not be eaten, so please supervise your children and pets with them if you think there is any chance they will ingest them.
