Everything is more fun when it glows, right?
These fun & silly glow-in-the-dark games are fun for young kids, teens, and even the young at heart. When setting up a glow-in-the-dark game, be sure to clear a large open area so no one gets hurt from stepping on or walking into anything.
#1 – Ring Toss: Place a small stuffed animal or toy on the floor and give each player a large glowing ring (each player with a different color). Turn out the lights and have each person take a turn trying to toss the ring over the animal. After each player has tossed a ring, turn the lights back on and see who was able to “lasso” the animal.
#2 – Hide & Seek: Instead of people hiding in this game, hide a glowing object instead. Assign one person to hide the glowing object and the rest of the players can search for it. Soft objects like pillows, blankets, etc. can be used in the hiding area so that no one gets hurt by walking into a large piece of furniture.
#3 – Glow Painting: Each child can be given a small white canvas and some glowing paint. After each child completes a picture let the masterpieces sit out in the sun to dry and soak up some glowing power. After the artwork is dry, you can set up a mini glowing art exhibit in a dark room.
#4 – Mystery Tag: The “it” player can wear a glow-in-the-dark mask and try to catch the other players in the dark. For a fun bonus point, the “it” player can try to guess who they tagged.
#5 – Blinking Balloon Toss: Using blinking & glowing LED balloons, players can bat around the balloons without letting them touch the ground.
#6 – Glow Bowling: Place one small glow stick in the bottoms of five empty plastic bottles. You can then bowl down a dark hallway to knock down the five glowing bowling pins.
#7 – Silly String Tangle: Using glow in the dark silly string, have two players try to tangle each other in a silly string web. Silly string is sticky & messy so this game is best played outside.
#8 – Glowing Salon: Your children can create their own mini glowing salon with glow-in-the-dark nail polish and hair accessories.
#9 – Clue Scavenger Hunt: Using a pen with glow-in-the-dark ink, you can leave riddles and clues around the house for a fun scavenger hunt. Players will have to find the envelopes and read the glowing clues in the dark in order to find the prize at the end of the game.
#10 – Dance Party: Dressed in glowing necklaces, glowing bracelets, and even homemade shirts with glowing designs, put on some music and let your kids have their own glowing dance party. You can throw in some fun music-inspired games like freeze dancing or musical chairs.
