Glow in the Dark Star Lamp Shade

Here's a fun, easy idea.  My younger daughter got a glow in the dark solar system set for her birthday.  We put a bunch of the stars on her ceiling, as instructed, but we had a bunch left over.  The problem with glow in the dark items, in general, is that they never seem to get enough bright light to "charge" them sufficiently.  

This was our solution to that problem:  use a hot glue gun to attach the stars directly to the lamp shade.  That way, they're very close to the bright light and get a good charge right before the lamp is switched off at bedtime.  





Have fun!

Cooler than cool. Can't wait to try with my GK's (grandkids.) Very nice blog. I just found it. Good for me

Attach, charge, then enjoy!! You made it look so easy. Haha! Well, I think this one’s really simple. I can even let my daughter do it herself and just guide her in case she needs my help. :) She would really be delighted to have this beautiful lamp shade in her room!
