Black Light Table

Six easy steps to an awesome black light table!

  1. Gently pop open the top of the Light Tracer 2
  2. Gently remove the fluorescent bulb in the Light Tracer 2
  3. Gently remove the black light bulb in the blacklight
  4. Gently inset the blacklight bulb into the Light Tracer 2
  5. Put the top back on the Light Tracer 2 and snap it into place, gently
  6. Turn on the light Tracer 2 and put some blacklight reactant items on it!!

I keep a 3 ring binder under the light tracer 2 to keep it level. You need it to be a flat surface for it to be a black light table.  Your kids will LOVE IT and so will you!!!  If you have no kids, it would be a REALLY cool display piece in your home for when your friends come over!!

The photos really do not do it justice. It looks really much better in person.  The frosted plexi that comes standard on the Light Tracer 2, really is a good thing. You really don't want risk damaging your child's retina's by them staring directly into a blacklight that is beaming up at them. It's a lot of fun, a nice little addition to having a light table... and JUST PLAIN AWESOME!

    1. Love it! I really want to do this with our light table. We turned our train table into one so switching the lights out will be easy. The glow in the dark painting looks so fun!!
