Make Your Own Glow Water

This Halloweenish craft is so simple it's just plain silly. Want to make your own glow water??
Now, don't go drinking this's not for that...but it would look great in a fountain!!
You'll Need:

~Take your highlighters and break them in half with some scissors.
~Take the felt inside the plastic and put it into a jar of water. 
 ~Do this with all the highlighters. Let them soak in the water for an hour or more (or squeeze them out with your hands to make it quicker).  Then, just drain and pull out the felt.

~To make your water really glow, put it under a black light. 

Now, if you're looking to make a glow water you can TASTE....try a drink with tonic water. It has the same florescence in it that makes it glow under black light like highlighters.
