Which black lights to use for your daytime glow party?
Once you have a dark enough space any black lights designed for parties should do the trick. Some however are better than others. We suggest the Glowave™ glow party kit as this comes with four long length lights, allowing you to put one on each wall to surround the party in ultra violet light. UV canons tend to blast the light into your guest's face from one point and often leave parts of the room not exposed to the UV light. The Glowave™ black lights are the easiest to set up, as they stick to the walls without requiring any special fittings, and they will not break if someone bumps into them, like the older style glass bulbs and fluorescent tubes will.
Why you should have a daytime black light glow party?
Black light parties for kids
Black light glow parties often get overlooked as an idea for young children as parents think that the glow parties will only work at night time. As I have detailed above, this is incorrect and unfortunately kids miss out as a result.
By having a daytime glow party you can give your kid's all the joy and wonder of black lights without interrupting their important sleep patterns.
Colors and happiness
Color can have a significant impact on our mood and happiness. Studies have shown that bright colors can make people feel more energetic and happy, while dull colors can make people feel sad or depressed. Apart from it symbolizing the calm after a storm, there is a reason why people love to see a rainbow. They enjoy the range of colors. Inside a glow party the colors will be visually spectacular, and unlike anything they have ever experienced. They will feel like they are stepping into a magical wonderland of color and excitement.
Sensory play is an important aspect of a child's development. Children use their senses to explore and try to make sense of the world around them through, touch, smell, taste, seeing, moving and hearing. Sensory play is critical to a child's brain development. Black lights facilitate exploration and naturally encourage children to use scientific processes while they play, create, investigate and explore.

Black light parties for adults
There are two main reasons why you should have a glow party during the day for adults. First of all, if you plan to have a drink, day time drinking in my opinion is always the most fun. You have all day to enjoy yourself without worrying about the time and you can usually get to bed at a regular hour to help reduce the following days hangover.
Secondly, one of the most fun things about black light glow parties is that you can draw and paint amazing glowing designs and temporary tattoos on your bodies. Day time parties are warmer, so people are more likely to strip down and give you a larger canvas for you body art designs. Doesn't a glow party with minimal clothing and lots of body paint sound like a better option to you? Maybe it's just me ;)
