It’s Wednesday and that means it is time for another easy glow-in-the-dark game! In case you missed it, you can check out this easy DIY glow Frisbee from last week. It is an easy tutorial that you can finish in time for the weekend! This week’s glow game is just as easy. In fact, this game is not even a tutorial. All you need to play is 20+ glow sticks and a park or yard to play glow stick tag. It is a great game for a party or an outdoor family night.

- 2 Glow Stick Bracelets per Player
- Large Open Space
Choose the first player to be “it”. That player puts 2 glow stick bracelets together to form a large circle.
Every other player puts one glow stick bracelet on each wrist.
Next, start your game of glow stick tag.
When a player is tagged by the person who is “it” that player hands over a glow stick bracelet to the person who is “it”.
- As soon as relinquishing the bracelet, the tagged player should take off.
The person who is “it” puts the bracelet on the large glow circle and continues the game. No one else can be tagged until that bracelet is latched around the large glow circle.
Game play continues until the person who is “it” collect all of the bracelets. That means everyone has to be tagged twice to be out of the game.
- If you have a lot of player you can give each player one glow bracelet instead of 2. The player who is “it” should still put 2 glow bracelets into a circle to collect bracelets on.
- Glow stick tag can be easily adapted for the pool on hot nights. Everything is played the same however I recommend players who run out of glow sticks should move out of the pool until it has ended.
Grab your free printable of the rules for reference during the game. It is pretty enough to put in a frame to display at a party, too. Set it up on a table and put your glow sticks in a decorative can or vase. It adds fun décor to your party and makes it easy for guests to familiarize themselves with the game.
This is such an easy game to put together. Grab some glow sticks at the Dollar Tree and get the family ready to play some glow stick tag. It’s the perfect idea for a graduation party or a summer BBQ. The game continues until the glow sticks die. Don’t forget to come back next week for another fun and family-friendly glow-in-the-dark game!
I’m a nerdy, crafty mom of three adorable little kids. I love writing and creating, but in my non-existent free time I also love karaoke, taking my kids to the zoo, and reading. I got my degree in Science (no idea how that happened) but I took every English class I could get my hands on because, yeah, I’m that girl.
