  • Old newspaper
  • Rocks
  • Glow-in-the-dark spray paint
  • Optional: Glow-in-the-dark puff paint, stickers, glitter


  • Take a walk and collect some rocks. Scrape off dirt before starting.
    • Tip: Too cold to be outside? Grab a bag of “river rocks” from your local craft or hardware store.
  • Cover your workspace with newspaper pages. Coat rocks with spray paint – three times each, with at least 15 minutes between coats.
  • When dry, add glow-in-the-dark puff paint, stickers, or glitter to decorate.
  • Place under direct light to “charge.”
  • Make an indoor pathway to your Hanukkah menorah or an outdoor lane for visiting friends and family. Make sure to turn out other lights for a real treat!
