Black Light Painting and Cupid Tracks

I have set up a black light in the room for a glow painting center! My goal is to have four of these lamps, so I can light the whole room. This lamp only cost $15 and it is two feet long.

  1. How much fun it must have been for the kids to create glow in the dark paintings! You must have rock star status in the school by now. :) I would love to try this sometime!

  3. THis is such a cool idea! Where did you get the light? Do you use regular fluorescent tempera paints? How will you display kids' work when it is done? I would love to try this with my students. I know they would really like it! Thanks for the idea.

    1. Thanks Nora, I got the light online from Amazon, and yes we are using regular neon tempera paint. The paintings look great in regular light. They have to draw it with black marker and fill in blak parts with black paint first, then they fill it in with neon colors.
