In Home Entertainment: Glow-in-the-Dark Water Beads

So, actually, the glow-in-the-dark part was kind of a FAIL.  The directions said to put the water beads in light for 5-7 hours and mom left them in the light for much longer than that, but they really didn't glow.  We tried them in our bath at night with no real dice.  That didn't stop us from having a good time, of course.  We asked for shaving cream (and then colored shaving cream) and glow sticks to "paint" with -- we even discovered that the glow sticks stuck to the shaving cream on the wall and we used those to "build" shapes.  The water beads didn't glow much out of the bath either.  Mom said they worked slightly better under the black light, but obviously she didn't want to put that close to the bathtub.  Good thing a water bead bath is fun all on its own!

impossible to take pics in the dark, but i'm making shapes on the shaving cream here.
