Play dates are serious business over at Growing A Jeweled Rose; Jewel and Rosie's parents converted their unfinished basement into a messy play space with different sensory play stations. On the first Friday of every month the girls host sensory play dates for their little posse, and one Friday last March the lights went out in the basement and sensory play went day-glo.

Glowing stations included discovery bottles, a face painting station, a water bead wading pool, a bubble station, a balloon pit, goop and a jello dig. Check out the set-up and the glowing messy play date at Growing A Jeweled Rose.
