Making flowers and leaves glow!

This was a neat experiment to see if we could make flowers and leaves glow. 
So first we made glow water. (cut open a highlighter and soak it in water for a couple hours.)
Then we went about picking some flowers and leaves from a nature walk.
Once we got home we put them in the glow water. Covering everything so nothing was above water and let it sit for about 4 more hours.
Once the time was up we took them out and dried them.
Went to our bathroom, the only room we can make completely dark and turned on our black light.
To our suprise both glowed, but the flowers had a way better glow!
This made for a great time to have a lesson on how plants and trees make food for themselves. (Photosynthesis)

Trash bin for bigger balls or large shoe rack works too Clothes hamper for pool toys & Mesh bag for sand toys Before we really even got some what organized we use to use crates but I found that with many kids going threw creates to find certain toys it quickly got messy so I really like the idea of having bins for certain toys. I also like that the bins are smaller then the crates we were using so that the smalle…
