a few weeks ago, decoart was kind enough to send us this awesome package of free art supplies, and among them was glow-in-the-dark paint! of course this was N’s big favorite, so we decided to use it to celebrate with our friend deborah over at teach preschool today, who has reached 20,000 facebook likes! she is seriously stellar – go check out her blog if you don’t already — congrats deborah!
thank you for inviting us to join you in the ABCs. today N and i are presenting the letter N for Night light! when i asked my N what she wanted to do with the glow paint, she immediately said, “paint rocks!” hmm, okay. why not!? we got all set up with a few big stones.
and painted them with this milky yellow-green paint on both sides.
we also decided that we’d use some of these tiny pebbles as a glowy treat.
we let them dry (and charge up) in the sun.
once dry, we put the pebbles in an adorable tiny honey jar and the stones on the windowsill to soak up some more rays.
then it was the moment of truth — do they glow? we tested it out in our window-less guest bathroom, and YEP! glowy rocks!
okay, so maybe not the most useful night lights, as the luminescence isn’t that intense, but they are like magical phosphorescent stones that N is psyched to put on her night stand, next to her real glass-encased glow-in-the-dark jellyfish from the monterey bay aquarium! what kid doesn’t love things that glow?
