Glow Sticks Add Fun and Safety to Various Outdoor Activities

Sunday, August 7th, 2011

Glow sticks are often considered as great sources of light for various outdoor activities. Features like light weight, ease in use, durability, cost effectiveness, efficient and varied lighting make them excellent sources of lighting in outdoor activities. They are commonly used as fun and safety tools in various night-time activities such as:

Camping
Glow sticks make better substitutes to flashlights or campfires during camps. Glow products like glow necklaces, bracelets, and wands are generally used as fun accessories during camping. They also help in identifying the campers in the dark. Since they are wind-proof and water-proof, they do not turn off in rain or breeze. You can also light up the path or tent to make your camping place safe.

Night games
Playing outdoor games in the dark is always fun. Playing popular games like Golf is more fun during night-time. You can play ‘Night Golf’ using glow sticks and other glow products. It includes use of different sizes of glow sticks to sign fairways, tee areas, golf carts and flags. Also, colorful glow necklaces and glow bracelets make players easily identifiable. Specially designed glow golf balls are generally used in ‘Night Golf’.

Many other games can be made interesting using glow sticks. You can add glow sticks to Frisbee, disc golf, baseball, throw ball, etc. to play them in the dark. Many games like night-time tag, treasure hunt, volley ball, etc. can be played in the night using glow sticks.

Twilight activities
Glow sticks ensure your safety in twilight activities like jogging or biking. Hold glow sticks in your hand, or wear glow necklaces or glow bracelets to make yourself visible to the passing vehicles and people. When walking along your street with your pet, hang a glow necklace around your pet’s neck too. Ensure that you use glow sticks of bright colors so that even distant passers can identify you.

Boating
Boating in dark is very exciting. You can decorate the boat with different sized and colored glow sticks. They can be attached along the edges of the boat. They help in marking the positioning of the boat. Glow sticks also serve as safety supplements and can be used as emergency lighting sources while boating. Small (mini) glow sticks can also be used as fishing lures to attract fish.

Scuba diving
Scuba diving is an adventurous sport, but is risky during night-time. It requires special lighting equipment. Though there are various heavy lighting systems for scuba divers, light-weight and water-proof glow sticks have become ideal and effective illuminating sources. They serve as the best marking tools in dark and help in underwater direction. Colorful glow sticks used by scuba divers associate in coordination and communication.

These glow products ensure fun as well as safety. They eliminate the need to carry heavy light supplements in outdoor activities. Therefore make sure that you are ready with glow sticks for your next outdoor activity.
