Monday, April 18th, 2016

Summer is almost here!

With the weather getting warmer and kids out of school there is nothing better than having the neighborhood over for a night-time extravaganza. Here are 10 ideas to help make any evening a glowing success!

Glow-Stick-Balloons

1. Glow Stick Balloons

This little trick will really help set the mood for any summer night-time party. Before getting balloons filled with helium, toss in one of our fat 1.5” glow sticks. Once the glow sticks are inside the balloons take them to the store and get them filled with helium. Tie these balloons all around your backyard to make for a bright and fun atmosphere. Up to twelve hours of glowing fun!

POPPIN-GLOWS

2. Glow Stick Popsicles

When the summer heat arrives, fight back by cooling off at night with a glow stick popsicle. To make these, replace your popsicle sticks with clear straws. We recommend using white grape juice or Sprite to make a translucent popsicle that really glows. (add in gummy bears for an extra twist) Once the popsicles are frozen and ready to eat, insert one of our 8” bracelet glow sticks into the straw and voila, you have yourself a bright treat to help cool off.

Water Balloons

3. Glowing Water Balloon Fight

There’s nothing more classic than cooling off with a summertime water balloon fight. Light things up this year by adding some of our 1.5” mini glow sticks to the balloons before filling them with water. Separate into teams using red and blue glow necklaces and let the games begin. You can also add a bonus challenge—the team that picks up the most glowsticks from busted balloons gets a special prize!

4. Glowing Ring Toss

This party game is easy and fun for kids of any age. Using our glow necklaces as rings and 10” yardage markers as posts you can make a fun and simple yard game that’s sure to be a summer hit. Divide into teams using the different colored necklaces. Stick the markers into your yard and let the rings fly.

Glow Bubbles

5. Glow in the Dark Bubbles

This trick is sure to add some life to your summer nights. Using a pair of gloves, cut open one of our 12” glow sticks and shake the contents into a bottle of bubbles. Give the bubbles a stir and there you have it, night bubbles that are sure to impress. Once you have the glowing bubbles there are a million different ways to make different sizes and types of glowing bubbles!

Sabers

6. DIY Lightsabers
All you’ll need for this project is duct tape, black sharpie and a few of our 16” soft flexible foam glow sticks. Wrap the base of the foam glow stick in two strips of duct tape and decorate the handles like a true jedi. We carry five different colors of these so you can choose to be the light side or the dark side. Just bend the foam to activate up to 12 hours of lightsaber fun.

Ceiling Fan

7. Glowing Ceiling Fan

This simple idea adds a spark to any party. All you’ll need to do is tape a few different colored 10” glow sticks to your standard ceiling fan with clear tape and flip the switch. This mesmerizing light show adds a new spin to any summer night. Bonus: Add different colors to different fans and it makes for a completely different look!

Glow ladder

8. Night Ladder Golf

Give one of your favorite yard games a little night-time twist. For this game you’ll need a ladder golf set, some Pro Glow night golf balls, some nylon rope and 10” glow sticks. First, drill a 3/8” hole through each golf ball—offset the hole so the glow stick will still fit. Be very careful on this step to make sure your golf balls are properly secured to a clamp when drilling through them. Cut your nylon rope into 20” sections and run it through the newly drilled holes. Tie a knot on each end of the rope. After bending the 10” glow sticks to activate them, fasten them to your ladder golf set using a few zip ties. You can use a few different colors to mark the different levels. Insert activated glow sticks into each golf ball and you’re ready to play. A simple night-time yard game that is sure to deliver hours upon hours of fun.

Capture

9. Capture the Glow Flag

This night-time twist on a classic summer game makes for an incredibly fun evening for the kids. After separating the kids into two teams, simply tie a bandana to one of our 15” light sticks and give each kid a red or a blue glow necklace. Once the glowing flag is activated let the games begin. Make sure you have kids wear glowing necklaces for their different teams so no one runs into each other.

Wiffle

10. Night-Time Wiffle Ball
There’s nothing that screams summer more than a good game of wiffle ball. With this night-time twist you’re sure to have a hit for your next party. Just insert some of our 8” glow bracelets into the center of the wiffle ball and swing for the fences. You can even cut a small hole in the bat and put in one of our 12” glow sticks to make for an extra bright time.

Bowling

11. Night Bowling
Create your own backyard bowling alley for any time of day! First, put our 4” glow sticks into some partially filled water bottles. Next, line them up and grab one of our massive 36” inflatable beach balls and you’re ready to go. Bowling on any type of yard that’s sure to be a total blast.

Glow Cups

12. Decorate your Dinner

There are so many fun options to make a meal glow. From glow stick straws to light up cups and ice cubes. You can even hide some of our glow sticks in the ice bucket to make for an amazing drink bucket.

Unique ways to use glow sticks

Thursday, August 16th, 2012

Glow sticks are diverse products that can be applied to a variety of situations and events. Let’s take a look at a couple of unique ways in which you can use glow sticks in your daily life.

First, glow sticks are a great teaching aid for younger children. Teachers can teach the ideas of chemical reactions, chemiluminescence, and even stretch the lesson out to discuss bioluminescence and how some animals use glowing to scare away predators. Children will enjoy the fun and colorful products while learning new information in a practical and hands-on environment.

There are a number of ways to increase the lighting power of glow sticks, too. One of the best ways is to put an activated glow stick inside a balloon and then blow it up. The entire balloon will be lit up and you can use it at outdoor events of all kinds. THey will float in pools, too, so they can be fun and functional toys for night time swimming.

Glow sticks can be used in many sporting events, too. Bring some to celebrate the home team or use some to light up an area if you are playing a sport at night. Some fishermen even use glow sticks with their bait to attract fish. Divers also use them to help see better in the deep ocean when they are exploring.

They also make great decorations for parties and other events. Set up a string of glow sticks to surround an outside area or place them inside your home at night time. You can also make paper lanterns that act like lamp shades for your glow sticks.

Tuesday, August 14th, 2012

If you are traveling in the dark or at night time for any reason, you should definitely be concerned with finding a proper source of light to guide your way and keep yourself visible to everyone and everything around you. Instead of carrying a bulky battery-powered flashlight with you, consider investing in glow sticks from Premier Glow. They come in a variety of sizes and colors and they are of premium quality. Our glow sticks will give you the source of light you need without hassle of any kind.

Premier Glow glow sticks are made in Taiwan and are composed of 100% non-recycled material. They are made up of two chemical solutions – a chemical dye and an activator.

All glow sticks are carefully packaged and are stored in climate-controlled warehouses to ensure that their quality remains intact all the way until they are delivered to the customer. You can purchase them in bulk at wholesale prices and keep a heavy stock of them in your home for any and all needs.

It’s a great idea to take a glow stick out with you even if you’re just going out for a minute to walk the dog or take out the trash. Keeping yourself well-lit works for both helping you see and helping others see you. It can prevent accidents of all kinds. Glow sticks are also great to keep around in case of a power outage or other emergency situation. Get some today!

Where to bring along glow sticks

Sunday, July 29th, 2012

Glow sticks are versatile and enjoyable products that can be used in  a wide range of situations for both fun and functionality. They use a simple but sophisticated chemical reaction to create a strong source of light without emitting heat by connecting an activator to chemical dye. Premier Glow sells glow sticks at wholesale prices in a wide range of sizes and colors. Let’s break down a number of instances in whcih you might want to have some glow sticks with you for light and for enjoyment.

First, glow sticks are great for traveling at night. Whether you are out walking the dog, heading to or from your home, or just outside at night for any other reason, bringing along glow sticks gives you a way to identify yourself, light up the area around you, and alert others to your presence. If you’ve got a pet along with you, it might be a good idea to attach a glow stick to their collar as well, for the same reasons. It’s safe, inexpensive, and less cumbersome than a battery-powered flashlight.

Glow sticks are also great for concerts. Most concerts take place either in the night time or inside a dark area, so having a source of  light is always helpful. Beyond that, being a part of the lit-up crowd shows your appreciation for the music and it gives you a way to celebrate with others. You can bring along a bunch of  glow sticks or necklaces and bracelets to share with your friends as well.

These are just a couple of examples where glow sticks can make a difference in your every day life. Get some for yourself and see what you’ve been missing!

Glow sticks are good safety tools at night

Friday, July 20th, 2012

Keeping safe and well-lit at night is extremely important. Whether you are walking alone or in a group, in a city or in your neighborhood, or taking your dog out for a walk, you should always be conscious of the world around you and how you can protect yourself. Cars, animals, other people, and many other obstacles may be a threat to your personal safety. That’s why you should always carry a glow stick or two with you when you go out at night. They keep you well-lit, you can see things around you, and others can see you. It’s one of the simplest, cheapest, and surest ways of staying safe at night.

People go out at night for all kinds of reasons. You may be walking around town, you may be heading to or from a friend’s house, or you might just want a breath of fresh air. Glow sticks are a great thing to bring along with you because they tend to be long-lasting, they’re very inexpensive, and they’re easily identifiable. If you’re with a dog or other pet, you should also consider putting a glow stick or necklace in its collar so that it, too, can be easily seen.

Flashlights tend to be bulky and rely on batteries to function; they are also less useful for illuminating oneself. People may see a flashlight but not the person attached to it. With a glow stick, you should be better lit up and easily seen. Premier Glow sells glow sticks in a wide range of colors and sizes at wholesale prices. Buying a pack of them will last you many, many nights out. Try them out today!

Many types of sports and other activities would benefit from glow products.

How do glow sticks work?

Thursday, July 12th, 2012

Glow sticks are interesting and useful products that can come in handy in a variety of situations. You’ve probably encountered them a number of times before at all kinds of events, like concerts, dances, celebrations, and other night time get-togethers. If you’ve ever wondered exactly what a glow stick is and how they work, you may be surprised to find that they are actually rather simple in their composition. Let’s take a closer look at what goes into making a glow stick,  how they function, and what makes them so useful.

Glow sticks are composed of three main chemicals: hydrogen peroxide, phenyl oxalate ester, and fluorescent dye. The hydrogen peroxide solution is generally stored in a small tube inside of the glow stick, while the phenyl oxalate ester and fluorescent dye surround it. These two chemical compounds remain separated until you snap the glow stick, which breaks open the inner tube and mixes them together. The hydrogen peroxide solution acts as an “activator” to the chemical dye, causing the glowing light that you want. This process is known as chemiluminescence – it’s the generation of light without the generation of heat. It’s a very interesting scientific system that can be performed with inexpensive products and in a safe way.

Premier Glow’s glow stick products are stored in a climate-controlled warehouse and are individually wrapped in foil to ensure that none of them break open on accident and that the products remain fresh until they reach their destination. Consider getting some for your next event!
