Everything you need to craft a Glow stick in Minecraft

A glow stick in Minecraft is a chemistry-related item that can be held in the player's hand and will light up for a limited amount of time. As the time is chemistry-related, it can’t be obtained in a normal survival vanilla world. Instead, you’ll have to be on the education edition of Minecraft to get these items that are related to chemistry. 

Here are the items you’ll need to craft a glow stick:

  • 7x Polyethylene
  • 1x Hydrogen peroxide
  • 1x any dye of your choice
  • Crafting Table

How to craft a Glow stick in Minecraft

#1 Acquiring polyethylene

Polyethylene is a compound in the Minecraft Education Edition. Hence it can’t actually be acquired directly; you’ll have to create it in the compound creator by adding elements manually. For polyethylene, you’ll have to follow the above-given recipe!

#2 Acquiring hydrogen peroxide

Just like the above-given polyethylene, you’ll also have to create the compound hydrogen peroxide in the compound creator by following the recipe given above!

#3 Crafting Blue dye

Minecraft has a lot of different dyes to offer to the player; blue dye is just one of them. To acquire blue dye, you’ll have to get a hold of Lapis Lazuli, a type of ore used in enchanting and is found in the underworld. You can also get blue dye by using the flower called Cornflower, which can be found in plains biomes, mostly meadows.

#4 Crafting Glow stick

Once you’ve gathered all the relevant items needed for crafting, simply put them on the crafting table by the recipe given above. You’ll have crafted your own Glow stick in Minecraft!

Similarly, if you want to craft a glow stick of any other color in the game, you’ll simply have to change the color of the dye used, and your glow stick will come out to be of that color!
