Rave On: Blacklight Bubbles

We've seen a big uptake in blacklight kiddo play lately and decided to get on board.  Even with this super mild winter we're having, we seem to be getting stuck inside a lot in the late afternoons and are always on the look out for new ideas.  Mom got us this blacklight from Amazon -- we've only used it a few times so far, but haven't been completely thrilled.  It works best in complete darkness and small spaces.  Exactly where you want to be after you've been stuck inside in the winter?  Eh, we still are fans.

For our first go around, we kept it pretty simple -- blacklight bubbles in the bathroom.  The bubbles aren't labeled non-toxic so we tried as hard as we could to keep them off of us, but we just had too much fun popping them with our hands, faces, etc. and finding the glowing residue everywhere.  Unlike regular bubbles, these aren't at all sticky and you can't see the residue once you turn the blacklight off.  We put our glow in the dark jammies on and raved on.  Between the blacklight, glowing bubbles, and the glow wands mom snagged from Target's dollar bin, we had a serious bathroom party for a while.  It was awesome.  Mom had a hard time taking any good pictures with us jumping all over the joint, but we think the fun comes through.

Stay tuned for future blacklight fun, which fun we are pretty sure does not include using it to find pee on our carpets like this one Amazon reviewer (although mom did mention after initially trying the light in Cami's room, that after holding up well through two babies, one with projectile reflux and the other with a knack for peeing during diaper changes, the "baby's room" rug is on its last leg).

my juice glows!
