I think I'd rather use a solar landscape light.
I really want one of these!Hidden Content
We got the unexpected surprise that our grandson would be spending a couple days with us today, due to our daughter being sick with the flu. So I mixed up a quick batch of this and poured it into tubes before supper tonight. After supper, I brought our grandson Bucco into my shop to get his reaction... When I turned out the light, Bucco's only word was "COOL!" As we came back into the house he excitedly exclaimed: "Grandma! Grandpa made light potion!" :D Times like that remind me why I even bother to chew through the leather restraints every morning. Thank-you Prepper Dog!
Tomorrow, Buc and I are going to mix up a batch that is double the glow powder that I put into this one to see if we can increase the intensity of the light a bit. (I went a bit lighter than your recipe - 1/2 tsp for 2 tubes.) Regardless of the prepper value, for any of you that have young kids in your life, this is a GREAT project! It is quick and requires nothing special in the way of tools. It is 100% safe. It is cheap. And based on Bucco's reaction, kids go nuts over it!

""Grandma! Grandpa made light potion!"
I'm getting some for my big brother to play with. He's already looking for weird shapes to pour "light potion" in....
