This is great. We did this when our 4 year old twin granddaughters lived with us. Where we live our back yard is TOTALLY dark at nite, no light whatsoever. Not even from the moon because of tree cover. We didn't feel safe giving them sparklers to play with on the 4th (or any other nite), so we stocked up on glow sticks and glow toys at the dollar store. They had a ball out there.
Another plus for them was they were able to play outside (the yard is fenced and the dogs were out there with them) after dark without Grandma and Grandpa being "under foot". I could watch them from the window and the glow toys lit them up just enough for me to see them and for them to see each other and be safe. Made them feel like "big kids" and it was an extra special treat for when they were good that day.
