I have a special treat for you today. Crystal from Growing A Jeweled Rose is here to share a fun science idea. Crystal always has fabulous play ideas and loves getting messy. I absolutely love what she is sharing today. You know how much I love science anyway, but making everything glow just ups the cool factor. Enjoy!
Hello, my name is Crystal, the writer of Growing A Jeweled Rose where I share lots of fun play times for children. I am so excited to be guest posting here at Inspiration Laboratories. Today I am sharing our Glowing Mad Science Lab with you.
I had so much fun creating this play time for my older daughter Rosie.
To set it up, I filled several containers with various glowing liquids.
I used Glow water, tonic water, and glowing vinegar. Tonic water naturally glows under blacklight. To make glowing vinegar, just fill a container with 3/4 vinegar and 1/4 glow water or tonic water. For instructions on how to make glow water, click here.
I also made glowing ice and a volcano out of play dough. On the table, I set out corn starch, baking soda, sea salt, and alka-seltzer tablets.
Then Rosie got to exploring some mad Science!
She had so much fun, and made many fun discoveries, like this GOOP.
The glowing volcanic eruptions were her favorite!
The sea salt and ice experiment had a really neat effect as well!
Rosie made many glowing concoctions!

I especially loved how colorful this play time was!
This was such a fun playtime, and there were lots of learning opportunities, too!
Special thanks to Trisha for letting me share here today.
I would love for you to drop by Growing A Jeweled Rose and check out some of our other fun play times. Some of our favorite ways to explore are through messy play, fun in the bath, and things that glow! You can also find us on Facebook, Pinterest, and Twitter
