There’s just something special about a gift that illuminates the darkness of a room or outdoor sky. This eye-catching feature is one that attracts loved ones of all ages. Glow-in-the-dark gifts certainly make turning out the lights fun and exciting. To get you started on finding the perfect gift, consider the following suggestions:

Encourage a child’s interest in astronomy by decorating their room with glow-in-the-dark celestial bodies, including a crescent moon and stars in assorted sizes.

Paints that produce a glow-in-the-dark effect are quite popular with kids. Depending on the age and function, there are many different options to consider. Some paints come in aerosol cans (like Krylon spray paint), while others require a brush, such as the DecoArt Glow-in-the-Dark Paint for craft projects. Kid projects for glow-in-the-dark paint may include decorating a T-shirt, backpack, or creating a work of art that hangs in their room.
