Rosie and Jewel loved our Outer Space Themed Glowing Bath so much I have been wanting to create another themed glow bath. During a recent trip to Walmart, I came across submersible color changing tea lights like these, and knew they would be perfect for our next glowing bath- a deep sea dive for lost treasure!
Glowing Bath Time- Treasure Dive!
You can get submersible tea lights in the floral section of any craft store as well as most department stores. I can not find a link to the exact product I purchased at Walmart but the submersible tea lights were sold in a set along with 100 diamond floral gems for only $10. This made a perfect treasure for our glowing bath!
I wanted to create a different glow effect with the water this time, so I used tonic water instead of glow water. Tonic water naturally glows a cool blue under the blacklight. I bought the diet variety so that it wouldn't be sticky, and added one two liter of tonic to the water as I filled the bath. That was enough to make the whole bath glow a cool bright blue!
Then I scattered the treasure all over the bath floor.
I added a few beaded necklaces and heart shaped gems.
I set the submersible lights so they would shine upon the threasure, making it sparkle and shimmer.
While filling the tub, I added lots of bubbles to the bath water so that the treasure would be hidden below.
I also set out a snorkel and mask for Rosie so that she could escape to an imaginative world of make believe by diving and searching for the lost treasure.
Rosie was so excited as soon as she saw this glowing bath!
She quickly put on her diving gear, and got right to searching!
She was in awe by the glowing water and sparkling treasures!
I myself was a bit awestruck! The submersible lights made the gems light up and sparkle so beautifully! It really was quite magical!
Rosie played and collected treasure for quite a while!
All of her treasure!
Once all the treasure had been collected from the bath, we brought Jewel in for a bit of fun. The girls then had a blast playing and exploring with the submersible lights and glowing bath water!
One the playtime was over, we drained the tub, and refilled it so that Rosie and Jewel could take a quick bath to get clean before bed!
This glowing bath treasure dive was so much fun! We will definitely be doing this again!
A few notes :
To paint the wall, I used Colorations fluorescent activity paint. It glows vibrantly under the blacklight, and washes right off the wall after. If you are concerned about the paint washing off, be sure to test a small part of your own wall just to be certain.
I purchased my blacklight at Walmart for under $10, and we have had so much fun with it! If you do not have a blacklight, I highly recommend getting one! We have found so many fun ways to explore and play with ours. Be sure to check out all of our other blacklight play ideas!
