UV SWAPs can be treated like any other SWAP, incorporated into a discussion on sun safety or even light science. The beads look white, but when exposed to the sun (UV light), they change color. These are great to take on a hike so even if it isn’t hot, the girls realize they need to put on sunblock.
- UV beads
- Large, coilless safety pins
Straighten safety pin — Straighten your safety pin just enough so that you can get the beads onto the attached side of the safety pin.
Add beads — You should fit 4-5 beads on the safety pin.
Rebend safety pin — Rebend your safety pin back to the original shape and close. If you have an issue with the beads sliding off, pinch a bit more at the bent area of the pin.
