Make a backyard bowling alley. Add food coloring to clear plastic bottles of water. Use party streamers as lane margins. Add glow sticks for night bowling. (These would make great outdoor table nightlights also with the glowsticks, gonna try it!
For pool lanterns, stick a glow stick in a balloon and blow it up!
If I had a pool I would totally try this out. Put a glow stick in a balloon for pool lanterns. Pool party on a Summer night! I think this could work pinned up on the fence of a backyard without a pool, too, so really great idea for any outdoor BBQ/party!

Fourth of July Crafts for Kids: Flour Lawn Stars. Cut out star stencil, sprinkle grass with water (to make the flour stick) and then sprinkle with flour. This idea also works for Canada's July Birthday. Just substitute the star for a Maple Leaf.
