everything must glow

Tonight we had some glow in the dark fun with led lights, balloons, plastic eggs, black light, sensory bottles, other random glow in the dark toys, and some sing a long kids songs!  ;)

Graham and Parker had a friend over tonight to play in the dark with them too!  There 3 year old friend Garland, happens to have autism so we thought that it would be a really cool sensory experience for her too. We are pleased to say that everything was a hit with her as well!   A great time was had by all!  You can get the LED finger lights in a pack of 40 HERE!

* Update Note that the black light photos are not too bright, this is due to only having one large and one small black light at the time. IN present day we have several more and the black light play is much better! For more awesome black light play see our Glow in the dark play board on Pinterest!! You can go there by clicking HERE! *
