What Causes a Glow in the Dark Effect?

Glow in the dark crafts for kids are always fun to make, but what is the scientific explanation for things that glow? There’s actually some chemistry behind the popular glowing fun. Inside glow sticks and glow in the dark paint is a substance called phosphor. Phosphor gives off a small amount of visible light when energized. However, for the phosphor to be energized, it must be exposed to light. This explains why it takes some time for the glow to appear. Phosphors also don’t give off much visible light themselves, which is why you have to hold them in dark places to actually see the glow. Nowadays, chemists have come up with compounds to make phosphors shine more brightly and for longer periods of time. Who knew that chemistry could create such a fun craft for kids?

I. am like a little kid when it comes to anything that glows in the dark. I have to make these. If they are lightweight I can make a tree ornament out of them as well. A tree with glow in the dark ornaments! That would be fun. Thank you for the instructions.

These are fantastic! The kids will love 'em.

I have a Grand son who is home schooled and we have to come up with crafts for him to do. I think this would make a great science project for for him, plus he can play with these Glow-in-the-Dark Bouncy Balls. We make our own laundry soap so we have ever thing but the glow in the dark paint. I'll be looking to see where to buy it. What a great craft for all kids of every age. Thank you so much for sharing this fun free craft idea.
