I’ve been on a quest to find really easy, really fun Halloween activities for my kids (check out our bubbling smoky pumpkin). These scary glowing eyes, #9 on Peggy Wang’s list of 31 Last-Minute Halloween Hacks on Buzzfeed, made the cut. They were amazingly simple to make. Plus, it was hilarious watching my kids – who helped through the entire process and saw all of the materials, etc. – get freaked out at the final result and run screaming into the house.
What You’ll Need
- Glow sticks
- Toilet paper or paper towel rolls (I used paper towel rolls because I got 12 inch glow sticks)
That is it! You can get any color glow sticks that you want, but I like green for the “demon eye” look. If you don’t have a nearby party story you can get glow sticker here (affiliate link).
Use scissors to cut eyes into the paper towel rolls.
They don’t have to look perfect. I recommend making them fairly close together to look more like a set of eyes when they are glowing.
Then, break your glow sticks so they glow.
Insert the glow sticks into the paper towel rolls.
Place them in a tree or bush. You’ll want to make sure that it is in an area that gets pretty dark (not by an automated outdoor light, for example). Voila! Demon Eyes!
