My kids were blown away by this play time.  They had a blast creating glow-in-the-dark art all over the pavement, and it glowed so brightly that it lit up our whole street!  

You may be wondering how we made this happen.  Well, I just recently discovered that blacklight flashlights exist.  Did you know?  If not I would take a moment and order one so that you can try the many other activities that we have on the way using these amazing flashlights.

Ok, now back to the chalk.  You won't believe how easy it is to make.  Are you ready?

Materials
Method
  • Fill the bottles with very warm water and stir. Then, secure the lids on the bottles and shake them vigorously until all of the ingredients are combined.

In addition to painting the sidewalk we laid down black poster-board so that the girls could hang a few pieces of their glowing art in their bedroom

Once Rosie and Jewel had squirted all of the chalk I gave them varying brushes so that they could paint pictures once more

Once all of the paint had been used up the girls had a blast using their flashlights to make their art work illuminate.  They loved lighting up the night with their art!

I am telling you my girls loved this activity!  I am sure your kids will, too! 

A Few Notes:  I held the flashlights for my children while they painted, and then they used the flashlights to illuminate their artwork once they were done.     We left our art on display until the rain washed it away, but you could easily rinse it away with a hose.  The chalk does not stain the pavement in any way.

This is the paint we use in our activities.  These are the flashlights that we have.  We have lots of other ideas using these flashlights, too!  Be sure to follow us on Pinterest so that you don't miss them!
