It’s time for some glow in the dark fun! Yes, please! I don’t know about you, but I have been fascinated by glow in the dark things since a young age. For fun that is fantastic for all ages, check out these 9 Creative Glow in the Dark Activities.
Glowing Rainbow Goop-Amp up the coolness of already awesome goop (This magic substance is pretty firm when just sitting in the bowl, but pick it up and easily slides between your fingers.). Add some fluorescent activity paint to the mix. Then, shine a black light on the goop as the kids and you play, and watch the colors pop. Thank you to Crystal at Growing a Jeweled Rose for this inspired idea.
Night Light Glow in the Dark Eggs-Hunting eggs is not just for Easter or daytime with my glow in the dark version. The kids and adults will have a great time decorating with glow fabric paint and then night treasure hunting for these glowing spheres of goodness.
Glowing Ninja Stars and Glowing Flowers-Katie at A Little Pinch of Perfect shows you how to elevate pool noodles and glow sticks into dancing, spinning, mesmerizing inexpensive glow in the dark fun.

Patriotic Glow in the Dark Fireworks Decoration–Let the kids safely help you light up the night by working with you to create these stand out fireworks centerpieces. They will be eager to show them off to family and friends. Hop on over to see what they look like in their full glowing splendor.
Glow Rice Recipe for Play–Crystal keeps turning out the hits with this Glow in the Dark Neon Rice Recipe. What fun to scoop, fill, and pour out this neon rice over and over. A black light is what makes this fluorescent activity paint on the rice pop. Just supervise so the kiddos do not try to eat the painted rice and be sure they wash hands when done.
Glow in the Dark Log Stools-The kids and adults will be able to easily find their seats in the dark when sitting outside with these glowing stools made out of logs. Detailed instructions can be found at WikiHow.
