Black Light Dodgeball


Hang black lights in the gym and use black light reflective tape on the court lines and the balls (spray paint can fade by the end of the game, then you can’t see the balls).

Have the kids wear white shirts and socks so they have clear targets to hit with the balls. Provide glow bracelets, if possible.

    This is one of our favorites. Although we recently got some new dodgeballs that don’t glow, so that added some confusion at first, but made it a lot of fun once the students got used to the idea.
