7. Neon squares black light game
For this game you will need a large dice and several large sheets of neon colored cardboard (6 colors) or 6 different colored rolls of neon tape. The game should be played in a large room with space for kids to run. The game also works really well in a roller skating or ice skating rink.
Create one large square in each of the six colors using either the pieces of cardboard or the tape and separate the squares around the room so each color has one area designated by a square of that color.
Neon squares game Verison 1.
The kids are instructed to walk, job, dance, or skate around the room while the music plays. At various times when the rule master/announcer decides they can stop the music and shout out a color. Every player then has to run or skate as fast as they can to the chosen color's square. The last player to reach the square is eliminated. The music restarts and play continues until there is one winner remaining. The good thing about this game is that the announcer can control it. If they know some kids are slower than others, they can call out the colors that happen to be close to the slower kid as they are dancing around the room so they have a better chance of racing to the chosen square.
Version 2 (lucky dice).
In this version of the game you will need a dice. Paint each of the sides of the dice to match the colors of the squares on the floor. The kids are again instructed to walk, jog, dance or skate around the room while the music plays. This time when the music stops all of the children have to freeze where they are. The game organizer then steps into the middle of the room and rolls the dice. Whichever color is rolled is the selected color for that round. Whoever happens to be the furthest away from the chosen color is the unlucky one that is eliminated from the game.
8. Glow Party Scavenger hunt!
For this game you will need to gather or buy a large number of objects that will glow under black lights. These could be novelty toys like the ones used to fill the piñata in the game above or just objects from your home. Hide these objects around the room. The objects will glow and be pretty easy to locate, so you may need to hide them underneath things, such as pillows or cushions, or blend them in with other party decorations in the room. Give each of the kids a list of items that are hidden in the room (for a cool effect hand write these on paper with glowing ink or neon highlighters) and send them off on a race to collect as many items as they can find within a designated timeframe. You may also indicate how many of each item are hidden in the room. For example if there are 6 kids playing the game, there may be 6 glowing yo-yos hidden in the room. Each child is only instructed to collect one yo-yo, so there is a chance they will all find one. There may only be 2 glowing frisbees though so only 2 kids will be able to tick this item off their scavenger hunt list and they may decide to look for this item first. The winner is the kid who ticks the most items off the list at the end of the allocated timeframe.
9. Pass the parcel with glow paper and glow novelties
Pass the parcel is a classic children's game that has been played for generations. To play the glow game version of Pass the Parcel you will first need to prepare the parcel. Pick a toy or a prize that the children are trying to win but do not let them see what it is. Choosing a prize that will glow under black lights is a great idea. Next wrap that prize in some neon paper (say pink). Then wrap another layer of neon paper around it (maybe orange). Keep adding layer after layer of wrapping paper in different neon colors. Do not let the children know how many layers are wrapped around the prize. When the parcel is ready have the children sit in a circle and play some music. The kids are instructed to pass the parcel around the circle continuously. When you stop the music the person holding the parcel at that time gets to unwrap a layer of the parcel to see if they have won a prize. If not, a new glowing color will be revealed. The music will restart and they will play again. As the parcel gets smaller and smaller, the kids will get more excited hoping the music stops on them and they are the one that gets to unwrap the final layer and win the prize.
10. Glow in the dark games of charades
Kids love to play charades and glow in the dark charades makes the game even more funny and challenging than the regular version. To play, write a list of actions on a piece of paper and put them in a hat (e.g mowing the lawn, flying a kite). Have one of the children draw out an action. They then have to act out that action without making any sounds. In the dark room they will not be able to rely on facial expressions to get the message across. The other children will watch the funny actions and try their best to guess what the player is doing. The kid that guess correctly is the next person to draw an action form the hat and test their acting skills.
To make the game extra fun you can have the person doing the actions where a funny costume or glowing outfit such as a morph suit.
11. Glow in the dark black light Jenga
Separate your Jenga blocks into three piles. Paint each pile of blocks in a different neon color (e.g. green, orange and pink).
Paint a dice in the same three colors, with each color have two sides to the die. Play Jenga in the usual way with only one difference. Before each turn players must roll the dice. They are then required to choose a block that matches the color on the dice. Kids will love the colors on the tower and the extra challenge of selecting the blocks based on color rather than simply choosing the easiest block.
