How fun, right?

You can refill the water bottle with new glow sticks as-needed. They make a fun flashlight for nighttime outdoor activities, and my daughter loved using hers as a nightlight!

How to Make a Glowing Monster


  • empty water bottle
  • 2-3 glow sticks (Check your dollar store – you can get quite a few for cheap!)
  • monster printable (download HERE)
  • scissors
  • glue dots or scotch tape
  • pipe cleaner, googly eyes, buttons, other embellishments, etc.


  1. Bend 2-3 glow sticks so they begin to glow, then drop them into a water bottle and replace the cap.
  2. Cut out the desired monster face + body pieces, then stick them onto the water bottle with glue dots or tape.
  3. Add pipe cleaner and other embellishments, as needed.
  4. …and that’s it!
