1. Build your own fort: Grab your pillows, blankets, and sheets, choose an optimal location in your house, and build your very own fort. Some construction tips and a few trusty clothespins will help make sure it stays up all night. Make sure there's enough room for the entire family! 

 

2. Flashlight scavenger hunt: Embark on a fun nighttime scavenger hunt to uncover hidden treasures...in the dark! Start with our list, or take turns making up lists of household objects to sleuth out with your flashlight.

 

3. Glow-in-the-dark oobleck: Create your very own ooey gooey slime and make it glow. This crazy goo is a non-Newtonian fluid: It can act like a solid or a liquid depending on the forces being applied to it. This activity is perfect for budding scientists!

 

4. Recycled lanterns: Design colorful “stained glass” lanterns to light the way using recyclable materials, paint, and tissue paper.
