Everybody loves to see stuff glow in the dark. There’s just something really cool about seeing a dark room or yard turn into a canvas where someone has added something unexpected and lit up! We’ve used glow in the dark paint for crafts, played with glow sticks and gone on house discoveries with a black light. Here’s some ideas for glow in the dark crafts to keep you and the kids busy this Fall.
