Although I don’t advocate keeping real fish as pets (it’s a sad existence to travel around and around a bowl for years on end), fake fish can make adorable companions! On a recent trip to a local fish hatchery, Travis picked up a plastic fish and turtle. We thought it would be cute to make them a little habitat to stay in. What’s better than a fishbowl home? A glowing fishbowl home!
First we squirted glue into the insides of the a clear glass bowl with a wide mouth, intending to make lines that looked like seaweed. Our glue was very runny, so didn’t work as well as we hoped, but we still then managed to dump in a whole can of glow-in-the-dark glitter and swirl the bowl until it coated the “seaweed.”
Definitely do this step over a trash can!
I then piped on a few fish with additional glow-in-the-dark paint and we set it aside to dry.
The glitter, disappointingly, didn’t show up as glowy as we hoped, but the fish were cute glowing in the dark.
Once we filled the bowl with water, it was the perfect home for our fish and turtle.
