Glow in the Dark Water Beads

This was super fun and really easy to do! My kiddo finds both water play and light play to be really calming, so this was perfect for her.

All you need to make them glow is a black-light marker. You can get these online at Amazon, prices vary from $7-$14 depending on how many you want. We also found them at Spencers. To make the water glow, I took a single highlighter, pulled the inside out (the squishy part that contains all of the color), and soaked it in the water. I used warm water and just kept squeezing it till all the color came out. Add in your water beads and you are done! We used a black-light to make it really glow!

*As a warning, most glow-in-the-dark products do leave slight stains on the floor. I'v had it come out of clothing and skin no problem but the floor is stubborn. Make sure you put a towel down!
