We made some cooked play dough & once it was cool I removed a third of the dough. (I placed the remaining dough in an airtight bag, ready for another day.)
I added some glow in the dark paint from the Early Learning Centre & kneaded it into the dough.
To check the dough had a glow, I moved the dough into a darker area of the kitchen to see if it radiated any light, & to my surprise it did!
To ‘charge’ the dough up, & prevent it from drying out, I placed it in an air tight Kilner jar & sat it on a windowsill in full sun. The sunlight caused the dough to glow - Hurrah! To add an extra ‘boost’ we shone a powerful torch on the dough, which made the dough to glow even brighter.
What a great way to explore light, solar energy, power, sensory play, imagination & creativity.
I’m thinking it would be great fun for any parties coming up at the end of October & treat bags too! ;-)
