Over 15 Glow In the Dark Party Ideas for Fun with Kids and Teens on New Year’s Eve and More!
Who else is ringing in the New Year with the kids? Mike and I usually go out to an early dinner, and then rush home to play Minute To Win It Games with all of the grandparents and the kids. We have so much fun playing those crazy games. This year, along with Minute To Win It Games (that I still have to plan), I think it would be fun to add some Glow In The Dark Party Theme Ideas. There is just something about glow in the dark that makes everything even more magical and fun. Come on in and check out all of the Glow In The Dark Party Ideas that I’ve found out in the webosphere:
Don’t these look like fun? Let’s get started!
Oh, before we do that…I just want to let you know that I have not tried all of these ideas out, myself. I am only rounding them up as fun possibilities. I always try my best to find the direct source to the images. I also try to sort through them. If they look impossible or too hard…then, they are outa’ here! Unfortunately, some slip through the cracks, and they don’t work out (like from what I’m hearing…the bubble solution, below). Sorry about that one. I hope you’ll be able to find a few ideas in this post that you like, and have success with them. Happy New Year! 🙂

I have had comments on Pinterest that state this method does not work. If you try it, please come back and let us know how it went. There are some other glow in the dark bubble possibilities, below. 🙂
Update: After getting some negative comments on Pinterest, I got a teensy bit curious. I ran to the Dollar Tree to get the supplies, and tried this idea myself. I went into the guest bathroom with no window. It was pitch black! My bubble solution did glow. It was hard to see what I was doing, but I started blowing bubbles toward the mirror. I could see where the bubbles popped. There were glowing splatters on the wall, sink and mirror, but I never did see a glowing bubble. Bummer. 🙁
Here’s another alternative for glow bubbles that does not include glow stick solution. I know that some people might be nervous to use the glow solution in glow sticks. That’s completely understandable. This idea looks like fun, too! I have also heard about store bought glow in the dark bubbles. I’ll try to find them on Amazon and provide the link, below. 🙂
Here it is! The last one requires a black light.

Happy Holidays, y’all!
