Writing birthday wishes on a chalkboard wall is always a fun touch for a birthday celebration. But it can be extra fun at a sleepover when the chalk you use glows in the dark!
Technically, the write-ups I found say you don’t need a black light but the effects of the glow chalk will be much more dramatic under black light. You can purchase a specialized black light bulb that screws into a standard fixture at your local hardware store. Change one ceiling light or floor lamp you can shine on the chalk wall for a more vivid effect.
Crayola makes Glow in the Dark Chalk kits, you will need to mix powders and liquid and use a mold to form the chalk. So don’t expect to open the box and have glow in the dark chalk ready to use.
Or you can make your own chalk – a fun “pre-party” activity for the birthday child. Growing a Jeweled Rose has a step by step tutorial on mixing up your magic potion.

It would also be a fun way to send a special message to your child at night….Sweet Dreams!
It’s a simple but memorable touch for a party or any occasion and that’s my favorite kind of project!
