Welcome! I’m excited to bring to you a new collaborative series on Light & Reflections with three other amazing bloggers. I’ve teamed up with Katie from Happily Ever Mom, Rachel from Racheous, and Dyan from And Next Comes L to create a great set of activities and projects for this series. Each Monday we will be posting new activities related to the exploration of light and reflections. Please pop over and check out what they are featuring each week as part of this series, links to each of their posts are below.
For this week’s installment of our series MB and I decided to dig the black light out of the attic and find a way to have some fun with it! I decided to use our florescent paints and make some glowing shaving cream with the black light! Really what is more fun than getting all messy with shaving cream? And not just any old shaving cream, shaving cream that glows?! Not much to a nearly two year old!
What you need:
- Florescent Paint
- Black Light (I bought mine on Amazon for around $10, American Dj 24Blb 2Ft Blacklight)
- Shaving Cream
It’s very simple to make! Just mix a bit of the florescent paint into your shaving cream.
The pink looked like a red/pink and the orange ended up like yellow when the black light was on but it was really neat! It turned out much better than I was expecting! I’m sure the more of each florescent color you use with your shaving cream the more brilliant the colors. I only used a small amount for the colors that you see.
Thankfully shaving cream is super easy to clean up 🙂
