We are really in a ‘Glow in the Dark’ phase at the moment!. Thanks to our friends at Wide World of Lights we have our very own black light! They are relatively inexpensive to purchase for yourself too! I’ve said it once & I’ll say it again…I don’t know who has more fun with this glow in the dark business.. the kids or the adults!
I have altered our ‘No Cook Playdough Recipe‘ (which is made in only 5 minutes) have added a secret GLOWING ingredient!
1 cup of flour
1/2 cup of salt
2 tbs of cream of tartar
1 tbs of oil
1 cup of boiling water
Neon/glow in the dark paints (non toxic)
Mix all ingredients except the boiling water & paint, together into a large mixing bowl
Add the boiling water and mix well – please take care when using boiling water around children.
Stir well until the mixture is well combined.
Separate your mixture into even balls & add your colour of choice to each (a few squirts does the trick nicely).
Roll it out your dough on a flat surface, wait for the sun to go down, turn on your black light and you are ready for some GLOWING Playdough FUN!
Here is the link to the Australian store where we purchased our Fluro Light Fitting and Blacklight tube from Wide World of Lights. You can also find them via their Facebook Page. You can buy the tube separately if you are lucky enough to have a Fluro Light Fitting at home.
