My husband has discovered the secret to re-using Glow-Sticks. These are the glow-in-the-dark sticks that kids love to use for camping, Halloween, etc. Our step-daughter likes to bring one to bed with her at night as a personal night-light when she is visiting us. When she wakes up in the morning, we put the glow stick in the freezer. At bedtime, we take the glow stick out of the freezer and my husband runs it under hot water until the stick glows again. The glow-stick magically lights up again and can be used night-after-night.

Glow sticks and necklaces are popular on the Fourth of July, but they glow for only about four hours after activation. Instead of just letting them run out, put them in the freezer. It interrupts the glow, and will resume glowing after a 5 - 10 minute thaw. Then the fun toy will last much longer!
