DIY Science Experiment #16 - Fairies in a Jar!
The spirits of these magical, twinkling fairies will make you glow with delight (and if only they were real).
Materials: Glass jar, scissors, rubber gloves, glow sticks, glitter, protective eye wear
Put on the rubber gloves and eye wear.
Crack the glow stick to activate the material.
Insert the end of the glow stick into the jar and snip the end. It is important to do this in the jar. Bits of glass will fall into the jar, this is fine and is from the glow stick.
Stir and shake the glow stick around in the jar. Be patient!
Use about 3 glow sticks per jar.
Add the glitter, close jar tightly, and shake the jar.
Turn off the lights and watch them glow!
Be very careful when handling the glow sticks. They are chemicals and make sure that an adult is always supervising the activity. 
How does it work? The bottom of the glow stick has a glass vial that contains hydrogen peroxide. This is what is released when you snap a glow stick. This hydrogen peroxide reacts with the suitable dye inside of the glow stick to create the glowing effect. This is the chemical reaction that is released into the jar.
