Cold weather and an early sunset can make the kids (and you) a little stir crazy. So bring a little light into your lives with these kid-approved flashlight games!
Cloudy skies can’t keep you from stargazing! This easy activity educates and excites. Just make small holes in a sheet of paper, tape it to the end of a flashlight, and shine it at a dark wall to create entire galaxies. Click to download our large or small constellation printout. Plus, kids can show off their creativity by designing their own star patterns!
This old standby is simple fun for everyone. Hand shadows are perfect for the first round, then you can expand the possibilities by cutting out shapes and attaching them to the end of the flashlight. (Bat-Signal, anyone?) To put on a show, hang a sheet from the ceiling and backlight it with a flashlight so kids can act out scenes using their stuffed animals and toys. Have kids pick their favorite color flashlight from the Brite Essentials Collection, and let playtime begin!
Hot Potato Flashlight
Sit in a circle, turn out the lights, and start up the music! This is a fun take on the classic “Hot Potato” game. Just pass around the shining flashlight until the music stops, and whoever is holding the light is out of that round until one winner remains! The Brite Essentials Mini Flashlight is great for this. It’s the perfect size for kids to safely hang onto as they pass it around and try to win this simple, fun-filled game!
