Glow in the Dark Loom Band Sensory Bottle
These glow in the dark loom bands don’t glow brightly or last long without an external source of light. They can be ‘charged’ by placing them under a regular light or in the sun, but the glow won’t last long. To make these loom bands glow bright a black light works best.
Glow in the Dark Loom Band Sensory Bottle: Materials
- Voss Water Bottle (These are our favorite bottles to use)
- Goo Gone
- Glow in the dark loom bands
- Super Glue
- Black light flashlight (optional)

Glow in the Dark Loom Band Sensory Bottle: Directions
1. Peel off sticker on bottle. Use Goo Gone to remove sticky residue.
2. Empty and/or drink water in Voss bottle.
3. Fill the bottle half way with water.
4. Drop glow in the dark loom bands into the bottle.
5. Add a few drops of glycerine. This is what snow globes use. It makes the loom bands swirl better than with water alone.
6. Fill the bottle up the rest of the way with water. You want to fill it all the way to the top so there is no air in it.
7. Place lid on the bottle and shake it up.
Play with your glow in the dark loom band sensory bottle for a few days before you glue the lid on. You may find that you want to add or remove some loom bands.
Once you are happy with it, glue on the lid and hand it over to your kids. Unless you’re keeping it for yourself of course. 😉
