       TIP

"Buy glow necklaces at the dollar store. We generally buy 2 or 3 containers so we're able to hand out extras while we wait for fireworks. Saves money on the kids asking for glowing products they sell in the street before nighttime parades and fireworks and you get to spread the magic to other kids near by!"
