Let's Glow Party!!

Over the summer I had the opportunity to work with a friend in an older age class during our summer adventure camp. Because I hadn't worked with this age group before I relied on Pinterest....A LOT! The greatest activity that we did was our glow party. It was so much fun, for all of us not just our students.

However being that this was our first party, it was a more learning experience than it was anything. So we took several notes for future references and to share with you the oops and ah's.

First off, the more the black light the better!! We had 3 black light strips but could have used more. We placed one at each center and they served their purposes well! Each center had a specific glow in the dark activity (click on the links for the recipes);

  1. Glow Beads made with Glow Water. This was so much fun and we will def do it over and over again! We threw in some funnels and cups and the kids emptied and poured the entire time. Even though this seems like a younger age group activity.....we learned there are some things that don't allow you to grow up ;-)

  2. Glow paint. I found an idea for glow in the dark shaving cream often used for glow baths, I thought we could use this at the tables with some neon food coloring......I was wrong! The neon food coloring only seems to "glow" in the light, that is why you see so many glow sticks surrounding the paint pans, so we could see the paints. It worked out though, we allowed the kids to paint with the glow sticks and painting in the dark seemed like a treat. The greatest part is when we finally turned on the lights and they saw what an actual mess they had made. I don't think I have ever heard so many boys scream EWWW. However next time we will use glow in the dark paints mixed with shaving cream instead...WE LOVE SHAVING CREAM!

  3. Glowing Science. This was phenomenal! We used the best ingredients possible (vinegar and baking soda) to set up a little science lab with neon beakers from the Dollar Tree. The kids LOVED this center the best ;-) We mixed the vinegar just like the glow water so that when mixed with baking soda the bubbles would glow. It didn't glow as well as I thought it would so next time I may try and tweak it a little bit. Maybe, color the baking soda??

Our craft project for the entire class was glow in the dark lava lamp, with the help of a black light of course. With this we used Tonic water which glows by itself so there was no need to mix anything.

Glow in the Dark Gak was a great idea and was suppose to be our class craft project, however I left the main ingredient at home, yet is was so much fun with my boyz when we tested it, I thought I would still share it with you.

I Am Back!

Just when you thought it was over, you turn a corner and see me standing there. Yes I am back and blogging again.....

As I shared in my "final" post, I wasn't following the savings steps I was preaching therefore felt guilty and convicted of being someone I was not....the very thing I hated about blogging all together. However over the past few months I have come to realize, that Prudent Wisdom isn't about practicing what I preach.

Being Prudent is to be careful and practical, a way of practicing common sense....I was reaching too high.

And Wisdom is to utilize knowledge, experience and understanding.....I may not be the wisest of all fools but I do have the ability to think.

Together Prudent Wisdom is nothing more than one carefully traveling through the journeys of life and sharing each experience in the search of understanding. Whether it be through clipping coupons or pinching pennies being prudent is the way I survive.

So here I stand, well actually sit with a k…

I Tweeted in Church


No really it was the silent type so no reason form me to excuse myself or be embarrassed.

However I did blush a little when the quest pastor favorited my tweet.....

Yes you read that right "the quest pastor favorited my tweet"

But did he realize I tweeted while he was preaching?

I am not sure...

Maybe that's why he liked it??

Or maybe, it was his way of letting me know I was busted....

Which brings the question;

Is tweeting in Church considered rude?

What do you think?
