My kids had a blast using a blow dryer to create these super cool glowing pumpkins.  The process is truly mesmerizing, and the final result is out of this world!  Are you ready to make your own?

Materials
Note:  For the best effect you will want to use a blacklight for this activity. My girls love using these super cool flashlights.  We also have a blacklight fixture that we often use.  I also recommend these UV-safety glasses.  My girls love wearing them, and they will protect kids eyes if (or shall we say when) they shine the blacklight flashlights at each other. 

Method
  • Now, the real fun can begin!  Give kids a hair dryer and have them use it to melt the crayons onto the pumpkin(s)

  • Kids can hold the dryer in different ways to create fun and unique effects!

Display your pumpkins in a black-lit window or place them on your porch with a blacklight blub in place of your regular porch light bulb.  My kids also loved making their pumpkins glow using their blacklight flashlights.
