Sometimes family parties can turn into all-day events, so it pays to be prepared with some fun glow in the dark party games. Just because the sunlight fades, that doesn’t mean the party has to fade, too. The best family glow games are ones that work for all ages – kids, teens and even adults. Keep these festive glow in the dark party games in mind the next time you invite your relatives over for a holiday party, birthday party or family get-together.
This Bocce set was made to play after the sun goes down. Great for the backyard, beach or campsite, the balls are made from a durable plastic that is translucent so the LED light shines through making them glow in the dark. Give them a toss and you can still easily see them from 100 feet away. The set includes eight glowing bocce balls – two green, two blue, two red, and two yellow, as well as one glowing jack and a nylon carrying case. It also includes batteries, instructions and, most importantly, a tape measure so there are no family feuds over who won the game. http://www.playaboule.com/Glo_Petanque_set.aspx
How low can you go when you limbo with the family? This is a fun glowing game that will bring lots of laughs. First, put on some upbeat, family-friendly music. Next, find a flashlight and turn out the lights. Then, hold the flashlight so the beam shoots out horizontally. That’s when the limbo begins. Challenge participants to limbo under the light without running into the beam. When everyone has gone under it once, then lower the beam for the next round. When someone gets hit by the beam, he or she is out. The last person standing is the Glow Limbo Champion.

The game from your childhood is back and better than ever when played at night with glow sticks. Designate a base and then give one person – the ghost – a colored glow stick to wear. The ghost goes to hide while the other players count to 40. Then, the players go and look for the ghost’s hiding place. The first player to find the hiding spot yells, “Ghost in the Graveyard,” to alert the other players. The first player who found the ghost is safe. All of the other players try to run back to base without getting tagged by the ghost. The person who gets tagged first is the ghost for the next round.

It allows you to be as active as you want, flinging the ring for long distances or passing it leisurely at short distances. It may become a favorite family party game.
