Glow In The Dark Drinks

What could be better than a drink that glows in the dark, right? Darn right! My kids thought these were so much fun. We made them on the 4th (which was totally fun). We’re going to do these when we go camping in a couple of weeks too. (We’re not up past dark very often.) =o) I can picture my kids, giant smiles on their faces, sitting around the campfire with these in their hands.

The idea came from Come Together Kids. So cool!

You’ll need glow in the dark bracelets, clear plastic cups and a larger plastic cup.

Snap the glow in the dark bracelet and place in the bottom on the larger plastic cup. Now place the smaller plastic cup inside and push it down to fit snuggly.

It’s that simple! Now fill the smaller glass with something delicious to drink and have fun!

Cool, right?

  1. Love this idea! I was thinking, well I’ll read it just in case but I can’t think of anything you can use to make drinks glow in the dark that won’t have serious after effects.

    Cups…dur! Sometimes I wonder if I’m even on this planet! Anyway, thanks for this, I’m so doing this!


  2. Another great idea from you to try out with my son! Thanks for sharing!

    That is so cool! Would be great for Halloween or for picnics or barbecues, the Fourth of July – so many occasions.

  31. Sherry Compton says:

    Love this and had never thought of it. This would be great for any party get together whether for kids or adults. It’s easy enough for kids to do and have fun with but unique and inventive enough for adult drinks too.
