Glow in the Dark Party Games

Glow in the dark party games are perfect for warm summer nights! Kids and adults will love them. Add a little light to your night at your luau, charity event, family reunion and more.


Capture the (glow stick) Flag

  • 2 different colored glow sticks to be "flags"
  • 2 glow bracelets PER TEAM MEMBER to match the team glow flag
  • Glow paint

Divide your playing area into two equal sides. Glow paint in the grass is a great option for this. You can also lay glow sticks in the grass as markers. You will also need to designate two areas for "jail".


Each team puts their glow flag somewhere on their side but visible. Each team’s goal is to find and bring the opposing team’s glow flag back to their side, while protecting their team glow flag.


Everyone is free to move around the playing area, but if you are on the opposing team's side you can be tagged by that team and sent to "jail". If you are in jail the only way you can be freed is if one of your team mates makes it to the jail untagged and brings you back to your side.


Glowing Treasure Hunt

This is basically a glow stick Easter Egg hunt. Just have someone hide a set number of glow sticks and lt the hunt begin! Give fun glowing prizes to the winner (most glow sticks, found the most blue glow sticks, foudn the last glow stick, found the special pink glow stick in the crazy hiding spot... you get the idea!)


You can also do this with plastic Easter eggs and mini glow sticks. Add candy, money, drink tickets or other little gifts to the eggs, depending on the ages playing.



Glowing Sidewalk Chalk

  • Plaster of Paris
  • Water
  • Glow-in-the-Dark Paint
  • Ice cube tray or similar
  • Disposable bowls

Mix 2 parts plaster of paris with one part water (ie 1 cup of Plaster of Paris to 1/2 cup of water) and give a few squirts of glow paint into the mix. Stir.


Spoon the mix into the ice cube trays and let dry overnight. Put the trays in the freezer for 15 mins to make it easy to pop them fromthe tray.

Glow in the dark paint does need to be charged, so hold the chalk near a light just before using.



Nighttime Twister

Take a traditional Twister game and paint over it with glow in the dark paint! (don't forget to do the spinner too).



Glow in the Dark Bowling

  • Six tall, clear empty bottles
  • 6 glow sticks or necklaces
  • Light up or glow in the dark ball
  • Fill the bottles with water and a glow necklace. Little ones will have fun rolling the ball toward the glowing pins!


Glow in the Dark Water Balloon Fight

Activate glow stick and insert into balloon. Fill with water and place in large tubs. Have a fun night water balloon fight!


Glow Charades

Glow necklaces, bracelets and glasses make this game challanging and fun! Let the performer pick an action card out of a box (ie juggling, running, archery, moonwalking). Everyone will need to guess the action by the way the glow items move on the performer!



Glow in the Dark Cornhole

You can either put a handful of glow sticks under each board so they are lit from underneath, or use glow tape to outline your boards and put X's on your bags for a glow game of cornhole. Make sure to have a flashlights to check points!
