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 adding some Glow In The Dark Party Theme Ideas would be fun.ย 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:

Glow in the dark bubbles by RV Kid

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. ๐Ÿ™‚ 

*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. ๐Ÿ™

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. ๐Ÿ™‚
