I did this experiment for my MOPS group yesterday, and it received a round of applause in approval! So, I'm passing along to you, my fellow fun moms, the trick(s) to making an amazing, jaw-dropping, Glow-in-the-Dark Pumpkin.
1. White pumpkins glow brighter.
2. Plaid Glo Away ($4.99 at Walmart) is the best glow paint for the money. Good stuff!
3. Use a "sponging" technique when applying your paint.
4. Do two coats, but make sure they're completely dry before handling.
Personal Recommendation: A glowing pumpkin makes a REALLY fun nightlight!
