This past year my husband and I have realized that we are needing to make some changes in our diets. One of the changes I’ve decided to take was not having junk food in our house. My rule of thumb is, “If it’s not in the house, I can’t eat it!” Sounds good right?
With Halloween right around the corner, I realize that, in the past, I tend to buy the candy I like. Only problem is I end up EATING that left over candy! Recently I was reading about a father whose son had a special diet due to epilepsy and he handed out toys to the neighbors asking them if they would hand out the toys instead of candy to his son. He didn’t want his son to miss out on the fun of trick or treating just because he couldn’t have candy. It got me thinking that there may be other kids who have food allergies or perhaps dietary needs that don’t allow them to have certain candy or none at all. The solution, I decided, was not to buy candy this year. However, what should I hand out instead?
Well I found the answer! Check out the finger lights I found on Amazon! I recently ordered a box of them to try out for Halloween as well as some other events this month I was attending. I had seen similar types of finger lamps and I must say these are the BEST ones so far! I like that they use a sturdy rubber band that can be easily placed on little fingers*. Unlike some bands that are sewn together and can easily be broken, these have a continuous rubber band material and are very strong.
I was so impressed with the finger lamps, that I sent an email to the company that makes them EtekCity and asked them if they would like to send me more in exchange for a product review. They came through with flying colors and now I will have plenty to hand out this year!
Our family had a great time with them last Friday as I handed them out to all the kids. We had our first family Halloween party with all of my siblings here in the Boise, Idaho area and their children. We played games and handed out prizes and treats. The finger lights were a hit! As you can see in the above collage, my 6 yr old had a blast with them!
- New Years Eve parties
- Birthday parties
- Glow in the dark parties
- Backyard glow-in-the-dark fun with kids
- Place them inside real or fake pumpkins or other Halloween décor
- Illuminate your Christmas décor with no wires
- Cut spooky eyes into a toilet paper or paper towel roll, than put the finger lamps where inside each eyehole. Place the TP roll in your bushes to look like creepy eyes at nighttime for Halloween!
- Place one on each finger and it looks like a walking Transformer or robot!
- Wear to a costume party
- Use as a comforting source of light for your child at bedtime.
- Decorate your car for a fun tailgate party or on the groom’s car at an evening wedding as a prank.
What other ideas do you have for these finger lamps?
