DIY | Kid Friendly Glowing Ice Cubes

< Back

If playing with ice cubes is fun, playing with glowing ice cubes is superfun. Here’s how:

You’ll Need

  • Vitamin B-50, 2 capsules
  • Plastic bag (maybe)
  • Wooden Spoon (maybe)
  • Measuring Cup
  • Table Spoon
  • Warm Water
  • Ice Cube Tray
  • Black Light


  • B-50 comes in capsules and tablets. If you have tablets, place two of them in the plastic bag, close the bag, and use the wooden spoon to crush them into a fine powder. If you’ve got capsules, just pinch them open and pour the powder into the water as directed in the next step.
  • Fill the measuring cup with warm water, pour in the crushed vitamin B, and stir with the table spoon to dissolve the powder.
  • Fill the ice cube tray with the liquid and place it in the freezer overnight.
  • Pop the cubes out of the tray, turn on the black light, turn off the other lights, and play.
