A Glow Stick Neon Sign

Bryce arrived home last night at 11:30 p.m.!  We are so glad to have him home and to celebrate his birthday.   Since he came home in the pitch dark, we thought it would be fun to have a neon birthday sign for him.  We used glow sticks* to spell out "Happy 40."  We would have written more, but we ran out of glow sticks!  We simply taped the glow sticks on a sheet of hardboard and propped it up in the driveway.  He couldn't miss it when he pulled in from the airport.

 The children loved helping to make this sign, and Grace coined it a DIY neon sign!  I loved that.

*Apparently, not all glow sticks are created equal.  The green ones (which were a different brand) were definitely brighter and lasted longer.  I got them all at the dollar store.


  1. Great idea! What a lovely surprise for him when he came home.

  2. Very cool and very thoughtful. Team effort is the greatest. Bet he was surprised and pleased. Anxious to hear about his trip.
