To make your own you will need:
I bottle of Elmers Glue (118ml)
118 ml of water
* 1/2 teaspoon of Borax (I bought mine at Bunnings Hardware store for $8)
1/4 cup hot water
Glow in the Dark Paint (we used about 2 teaspoons)
Pour your glue into a bowl
Fill that same glue container with water, add to the glue and mix
Add 2 tsp of glow in the dark paint (or as much as you need for your desired colour) and mix well
In a separate container add 1/2 teaspoon of Borax
Add the 1/4 cup of hot water and stir until dissolved
Pour the Borax solution into the glue, water & paint mixture
Stir well until combined (you can even get your hands into this action if you like…I always do!)
Turn of the lights, turn on your black light and let the magic happen! My kids were AMAZED at this and we make it all the time now!
*Please note that Borax is not edible so please make sure that anything including Borax stays away from little mouths and tummies!
