How to Make Ghoulish Glowing Drinks

glowing drinksDid you know that you can make drinks that glow in the dark simply by adding Tonic Water?

A substance called quinine makes tonic water fluoresce under black light.

We made our potable potions with ginger ale, sour apple flavouring, and tonic water.

Tonic water has a grapefruit-like bitterness, so if you are sensitive to bitterness, then you might not be crazy about the taste of these drinks. Emily didn’t mind the taste:

You will need:

  • 1/3 to 1/2 cup of Tonic Water
  • 2/3 cup of ginger ale
  • 1/8 cup sour apple flavoring or flavor of your choice (you could also use grenadine)

Give it a stir and drink if you dare!

How to Make Melted Glitter Crayons

We honestly don’t know how we ended up with so many crayons, but we have a drawer FULL of them! Maybe you have a bunch kicking around your house too. Why not upcycle them into these gorgeous Melted Glitter Crayons? All you need is some glitter and a small muffin pan. (Tip: If you don’t want wax residue in your muffin pan, you can use paper cupcake liners which will give your crayons cute crinkled edges. We bought our mini-muffin pan at a second hand store and use it exclusively to make crayons.)
