Glow-in-the-Dark Fun Putty

Here’s a fun way to explore chemistry with this glow-in-the-dark experiment.

You will need:

1T Glue, 1T liquid laundry starch, ½-1 tsp non-toxic glow-in-the-dark paint, a 4oz disposable cup, and a craft stick

Directions: Put glow-in-the-dark paint in a small cup, add glue and liquid laundry starch and mix with a craft stick. Put the cup in a sunny window and play with it in a dark place. When it stops glowing, put it back in the sun or shine light on it. When not in use, store in a zip-top bag in the refrigerator for up to 1 month. More glow paint can be added if needed.
