Make some Glow Rocks

By Isabel Kallman

Last summer, I wrangled my then 5-year old son and convinced him we were going to make glow-in-the-dark rocks, just like something you would find in Scooby Doo.

We spent time collecting very large rocks, then washed them and by the time the witching hour rolled by (while I was making dinner), my son was captivated for 30 minutes painting our now clean and dried rocks.
All you need is: glow-in-the-dark paint, paint sponges, and craft paper to protect your surface.

We got this idea from Danny Seo, the nation’s leading green-DIY expert. If you haven’t visited his blog yet, please do. There are always easy-to-do crafts ready for you.
The finished product? Eh. It didn’t glow as much as I would have liked. But, it was a fun project for my kid nonetheless and he didn’t seem to care about the glowing part. Me? My visions of a path lit by glow rocks faded. But I’m an adult, so I coped. Really it’s more about the process than the end product, right?
