Glow-in-the-Dark Activity with Magna-Tiles®
Are you curious how your Magna-Tiles® glow in the dark?
Are you curious how your Magna-Tiles® glow in the dark? It may seem like magic, but it’s actually science! Each Magna-Tile® contains a special substance called phosphor that allows it to illuminate in the dark.
What is phosphor? It’s a special substance that radiates visible light after being energized. To energize phosphor, you can illuminate it with light. You can experiment with the phosphor in your GLOW set using the included LED!
Try this fun experiment:
1. “Click” together your Magna-Tiles® GLOW set creation!
2. Turn on the LED light by flipping the switch near the bulb.
3. Write a secret message on your glow-in-the-dark Magna-Tiles®.
4. Turn off the lights to reveal the secret message!
Remember… the longer you expose your tiles to light, the longer and brighter they will glow in the dark! Be sure to share your glow-in-the-dark creations on social media using #magnatiles and #magnaqubix for a chance to be featured!
