The fun and appeal of a “glow in the dark” party not only lies in the surreal, cool effects you get in the party area but also the creativity that goes behind it. So when you plan one for your kids, make sure you involve them in every detail to make it a wonderful experience! Here are some funky ideas we gathered…enjoy 🙂
Use glow sticks to create a welcome sign or any other words you want to stand out for your little guests.
Use black lights, heavy curtains to make the room as dark as possible and get the maximum effect of any glowing, neon or fluorescent decor items. Use our glow in the dark wall art to jazz up plain walls and set the mood. See more: http://tinyurl.com/glowing-wall-art
You can use a plant hanger and glow sticks to make a chandelier or just stick glow sticks inside balloons. Kids will simply love it.
Want some spooky fun? Just put glow sticks inside plastic cups or inside white balloons and draw scary faces on them!
Children always enjoy bright, animated stuff, so our funky LED night lights cum wall stickers will be perfect to create some friendly “glowing” fun. See more: http://tinyurl.com/fun-night-lights
Ask your guests to wear shoes with LED shoelaces to add some zing to the party. Hand out white T-shirts and highlighters so that kids can write cute messages on each other’s back! Yellow and orange pens work the best.
Give every guest socks in bright neon colors or black and white and ask them to show off cool dance moves on the floor. You can also have glow necklaces handy to keep the party spirit high!
Do you know how creative you can easily get with old mason jars? Just go wild on them with glow paint of your choice and a magical display is ready for everyone to go “WOW”!
Lay out all the yummy food on a table against a particular wall. Use a black cloth or large sheet as a backdrop and decorate it with neon or fluorescent paper flowers or streamers or anything else your kids fancy. Try and get cookies, cupcakes or pastries with neon food colors in them. Using a bright fluorescent cupcake stand is also a great idea.
Use bright neon plastic or paper cups, fun straws to made the food “shine” in the dark! You can also use water proof, acrylic LED ice cubes for the drinks and edible neon sprinkles on the chocolates or sweets…it will make the goodies doubly delicious.
Most kids adore soft, feathery candy floss and if you insert a glow stick in each, voila! They get glowing candyfloss! But yes you should ideally not serve it to very small kids who might think the glow stick is edible.
It’s a kids’ party so don’t forget games. If you have a kiddie pool just throw in loads of glow sticks to get the crowd mad with joy. Or just half fill some empty bottles with water and drop in glow sticks. Glow bowling is ready!
Lastly, if you don’t mind a bit of mess, join in with the tiny tots and apply glowing face paint to have the ultimate glow in the dark party 🙂
