Radioactive Soccor Ball

There are SO many reasons why I love my husband.  This is one of them.  He takes time here and there out of his busy life (during the day even) to create something with Ben.  Something just for Ben, to make him happy and put a smile on his face.  There are so many creations like this one I just never documented them till now.

Ben loves his soccor ball that he got for Christmas.  It glows in the dark and now he can’t go to bed without it.  Daddy will ususally hold it under the bathroom light extra long right before he takes him to bed, which turned into holding it under our LED grow light for a few second which super charged it!  Ben would get a kick out of this every night.  Especially when he was walked into his dark room and his soccor ball just would just glow like crazy!  Wow! he’d say.

So one afternoon David created this piece of work which now happily sits in Ben’s room waiting for bedtime.  Yup! That is a chamber lined with tinfoil that the grow light sits on and does it’s thing!  The ball cozily sits on a rack so as to expose all sides to the light.  And boy does it work!  Look at that smile!
