This was an easy UV glowing creation Dimples made in the dark that was glary orange and bright.
Using our Black light and a large piece of Fluro Orange contact sticky face out on a mirror he made a glow in the dark master piece and made some fun discoveries along the way.
All you need is some fluorescent contact paper and a mixture of resources that are either fluro, bright white or glow in the dark, some black shapes and a UV light.
I cut some stars and moons from black paper and used a hole punch with black & white paper to gather some small circle 'confetti' and I used some pieces of fluro yellow cellophane wrapping paper.
Dimples immediately dubbed it a space scene and put up all the black shapes.
He noticed the contrast on the fluro paper and said that they don't glow through so then he began experimenting with the stripes of cellophane. It was fluro yellow but under the UV light, after he put it over the black shapes he discovered it turned green. The next discovery came when he threw the confetti at the contact and it stuck with no pressure. Yay! Dimples must of thought, throwing confetti at the contact like a crazy kid but having so much fun.
White craft googly eyes also work well under the UV light.
We had a creation on a large mirror in a dark room so Dimples also experimented with hanging pieces of cellophane off the bottom and watching the glowing reflection in the mirror. He was blowing at them to make them (and the reflection)move. Of course, as most 4 year olds do he had to also experiment with himself in the mirror and see if he glowed.
