Starry Sky

My mom is amazingly talented at creating atmosphere. She can set the stage for magic and fun, then step back and watch quietly as wonder lights the faces of those around her. Over the summer, she introduced the kids and I to painting with Glo-Sticks.

The phosphorescent contents of a Glo-Stick burn bright but brief, which makes it the perfect medium for kids. All the creativity of glow-in-the-dark-paint without the permanence!

We broke open a large Glo-Stick and dipped Q-tips {our make-shift paintbrushes} into it. The kids got right to work painting stars, rocket ships and their names onto the walls of their bedroom. Dad got to work painting a monster face onto his hat. :)

The effect was lovely for a few hours. In the morning it had faded, but the memory had not-- in fact, I've been inspired to paint a starry masterpiece on my own bedroom ceiling! {According to my mom, the best glow-in-the-dark paint is from Glow Inc.}

I'm assuming the glow paint become invisible once it loses it's glowiness?

What a great idea. We've been mass consumers of glow sticks for quite some time. We play glow stick tag and take glow stick bathes.
