My neighbor sent me an email with a "magical" project: Fairies in a Jar!
The photo, despite being clearly PhotoShopped, leads you to believe that you can create sheer magic in your own home, just by cutting up a glow stick and shaking it into a jar with glitter.
So I do. Did you know that glow sticks have little glass tubes inside? That's what makes the clicky sound when you break them. So I cut the glow stick, then had to figure out what to do with this thin glass tube of liquid. I ended up breaking it up with some pliers and leaving the pieces inside. And I dumped in some glitter, two kinds.
Let the magic—uhhm.....
Techman walked into the kitchen and was momentarily impressed because he thought I had made a DIY glowstick with household chemicals.
Hey, I have super powers.
I shook the jar around. I looked at it in the dark. Techman said, "You know what that is?"
"That's creamed fairies."
So, if you want to make a jarful of creamed fairies, give it a shot. Might be great in a friendly haunted house at Halloween!
