Light Brites are 13 oz or Less

10.25.12


Tell me, did you ever play with these growing up?

Light Brites was definitely one of those things I was very excited to introduce to my kids.

Recently, while keeping my 3-year-old entertained, we discovered we could use our Light Brigtes to make this

I was surprised to discover how simple this was.

We took our recent booty from the pumpkin patch and hollowed it out like usual. Then we just had to scrape out a little extra to make the pumpkin walls a tad thinner than usual.

When we wanted to carve out some holes for our Light Brights, all it took was one of those handy safety carvers, and we were set.

The results were fantastic.
I did find I had to illuminate our jack-o-lantern with a night light instead of only a candle.

We decided the idea was too good not to share, so we piled some Light Brites in a tube, taped them up, and added some postage.


Now that I’ve mailed them off, there is is just one thing I’m trying to decide. I have several readers who have mailed coconuts. Do you see where I’m going with this? And I have a reader (hi, Angi!) who knows of someone near her who sticks postage on mini-pumpkins every year and mails them off as surprises.

So…do I mail the pumpkin too?
