Glow in the Dark Jello

WOW! I would have never guessed it was this easy to make Glow in the Dark Jello!

Lately we have been having all sorts of fun with glow in the dark and black light activities. It is such a simple way to have fun with a powerful WOW factor. The minute you make anything glow in the dark it is automatically magical. Automatically.

This Glow in the Dark Jello isn’t anything spectacular. It looks spectacular. It looks magical. But, really it is just ordinary Jello with one simple twist. The great thing? Your kids will never know just how insanely easy this is to pull off!

Jello is one of those comfort foods for me. Whenever I am sick or my kids are sick Jello is just one of those go to’s. Now granted this version of green Jello does look like some glowing toxic waste…but hey, I bet it would bring a smile to your child’s face no matter how icky they were feeling.

Not to mention, this would go pretty neat with a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Birthday Party! Or a fun snack to go with a glow in the dark sensory bin. Whatever you do with this it is pretty damn neat and I promise it won’t make you sick.

Ingredients

  • Jello Mix
  • Water
  • Tonic Water
  • Black Light

Instructions

  1. Make Jello as directed on package
  2. Substitute out Cold Water for Tonic Water.
  3. Viola! Glow in the Dark Jello! (serve under black light)
Now here is the secret. The tonic water will make the Jello bitter, so go sweet. You don’t want to do a lime or a lemon version of Jello because with the Tonic water it will just be ick. The version show here was Green Apple and it was delicious. Also reds, oranges, blues…they don’t work as well as green does. They will still glow, just not as bright.

Also another trick that I LOVE to do when making Jello is to make individual servings by letting the Jello firm up in small Rubbermaid containers. In this case I reused some baby food containers. HUGE money saver compared to buying prepackaged Jello plus you can easily throw these into school lunches. AND as it sets in the refrigerator for those very long four hours you don’t have to worry about kids knocking it around because they have lids on them 🙂
