  1. Ooh, ooh, ooh, I LOVE this idea! I’ve been trying to find a unique idea for Valentines day and I think this may just be it! However, I think I will start by giving him the blacklight and markers that morning and make him wonder what they are for all day! He’ll find out that night! Love it!

  2. You girls are gonna LOVE IT!! Not to mention make your hubby smile every single time you toss him a highlighter! I got my black light at good ol’ Walmart. It was near the fluorescent lighting, and the actual light is sold with a regular white light in it, so don’t forget to look right next to it, where the extra fluorescent bulbs are are choose the BLACK LIGHT BULB that has the same number to fit the light fixture you’re getting. Enjooooy!!!

  3. I got my black light at Walmart. It came with the black bulb in it. It was $9. I am doing your hostage date for Valentine’s. We’ll eat our take out on a mountain overlooking the city lights. Then we’ll do this idea later that night. I’m so excited!! Thanks Kiirten!!

  4. LOVE THIS!!!! The hubby and I have a ball (yes a real ball) to attend this month. We always get a sitter and make it a weekend event. I am thinking I might just have to pack some markers! Do you think he will wonder why I am packing a black light??? hmmmm. I will have to think about this one. We usually just pack one bag. I have a couple of weeks, I can make something work 😀

  5. I did something similar a while ago. I gave birth to our first daughter 2 weeks before my husband’s birthday, and I was so tired, I didn’t do anything for him. To make up for it, I took him to a hotel the next year.

    The Anniversary Inn has a space themed room full of black lights and glowing planets. My husband LOVES Star Trek, so it seemed like a match made in heaven. I bought glo-in-the-dark body paints (You can get them at Backstreet Boutique). I made him close his eyes when I brought him up to the room, and I was wearing white lingerie under my street clothes, so when he opened his eyes I was a sexy space alien! It was totally fun, and I’m excited to try the markers so we can recreate the date at home!

  6. Best idea ever!!! What a simple way to spice up any night! He will never look at highlighters the same again!!
    I just happened upon your blog & I absolutely adore it! I’ve read a zillion post & can’t wait to use the ideas! Thanks! I love finding a blog that is ‘safe’ & contains so many real marriage helps!

  7. We’re going out of town for New Years, leaving our son with a friend and getting a hotel room. This will be so much fun. Off to find the black light, highlighters & body paint..

  8. My husband actually found this post several weeks ago and he put it into action last night. We used black lights in our overhead fixture and highlighters with great results. This post is definitely going on my “pinned” list. 🙂

  9. Quick question – with just the regular highlighters, how easily did they wash off? Loving this idea, but I’m not up for any leftover ‘evidence’ for the rest of the week. 😉 Thanks so much!

  10. Just an FYI for those who haven’t tried this yet……
    The brand of highlighters makes a difference. “Sharpie” highlighters don’t glow very much and are hard to wash off. (Thankfully I tested it on my hand first! lol) “Bright” highlighters glow amazingly bright and are super easy to wash off.

  11. OMG! This was an amazing idea! I bought two black lightbulbs are the dollarstore, and screwed them into the light fixture in the ceiling of our bedroom. I used yellow highlighters as, when I tested it, some of the other colors didn’t glow. I wore a white top that clicks together in the front and a thong. The outfit has foil red colors in sort of a tattoo pattern, which really popped when the black lights were on. Needless to say, “Picasso Night” was a hit! So grateful to have found your website. You gals are amazing!

  12. This was SO much fun!! My husband and I laughed so hard and had so much fun drawing dumb stuff all over each other :). We used only the yellow highlighters because they were the only ones that showed up well enough and you couldn’t see them with the lights on in case we missed washing off any evidence lol.
