How to Make a Glow in the Dark BOO Kit

Have you ever BOO’d your neighbor before?

Part of the fun of BOO’ing your neighbors is having them try to figure out who left them a gift. Sneaking up to your neighbor’s porch is a lot easier to do at night and since it’s already nighttime, you might as well make your gift stand out by making it glow in the dark.

You don’t have to spend a lot of time to pull off this idea.

Put tissue paper inside the container first. Next add a few of the 7UP® 8oz Halloween Cans. I put a layer of tangy candy followed by the chocolates. I added one additional can to the top to help hold the card.

For the Glow in the Dark Sign I used Glow Sticks to form the letters and used clear tape to secure them to the board.

Make sure that you crack the glow sticks for the color to start glowing before you tape them to the board. You can use the board vertically or horizontally.

Next, I added a few stickers and along with additional glow sticks along the edges of the board.

Print out the BOO kit. You can get your own free printable card here.

    1. Cut out this “We’ve been BOO’d sign.
    2. Fold the “You’ve been BOO’d” greeting card (page 2) and tape openings together.
    3. Include the card and sign when gifting BOO bundles.

Once your kit is ready, do your best to go into stealth mode when you drop off the BOO kit on your neighbor’s porch.

If they have younger kids, you will want to try to get it to their home early enough so that they can see it.

Tips for your 1st Glow Race

Tips for Your 1st Glow Race

Thinking about running in a glow run?

We had a lot of fun at our very 1st glow run with the Neon Vibe 5K and we’ve enjoyed a few more since then which is why I’ve created a list of a few tips to have the best glow run experience possible.

1. Wear as much white or neon clothes as possible to maximize your glow

2. Find extra fun glow accessories

You will get some with your race, but to really stand out, look for some creative accessories online or you can stock up at a local dollar store.

5. Bring a ziploc bag or waterproof case if you plan on bringing your phone with you during the race otherwise you might want to bribe someone to take pictures for you

6. Have a plan of where to meet in case you get separated from each other during the race

I have run a few of these types of races now and we have gotten temporarily separated from our group a few times. It’s good to have a plan in place or your race experience will not be as fun.

7. If you have sensitive eyes, wear sunglasses to keep the color out of your eyes

8. Pack extra clothes

There is a good chance that you might not want to ride home covered head to toe in colored chalk.

9. Bring garbage bags or towels to cover your car seats

Trust me, you don’t want you car to be covered in colored dust.

10. Keep in mind that not everyone can rock a full covered neon body suit, but this event is all about fun, so who cares!!! Just be prepared to dance!

11. Have Fun!

Remember that a fun run is just that..FUN! So don’t take it too seriously. If you wanted a serious competitive race, you should have signed up for one. Just enjoy making memories by running through a rainbow of color in the dark.
