Last night at Pack Meeting with the cub scouts, we had our semi-annual awards night where we recognize and award boys who have earned the prestigious Arrow of Light.
Part of the ceremony includes a symbolic teaching moment with an arrow and glow sticks.
The glow sticks are of course, no good after you activate them and the ceremony lasts maybe ten minutes.. so we give out the glow sticks at the end.
I was warned, that if broken open, they will leave a luminescence, everywhere, for a LONG time.
I didn't worry giving them to my own children, as I thought that they weren't capable of the strength it would take to do such a thing..
I was wrong...
I was warned.
