Last week when Henry was cooped up in the house I broke out my glow stick bracelets and we made some glow in the dark balloons one night. We waited until it was dark enough and then had a glow in the dark balloon fight. It was so much fun, we might just have to make it a weekly movie night tradition! So easy and simple, this would be awesome for a kids party. Let the kids throw them around like wild, or string them up for decor! Or. Get a helium machine and fill the ceiling with them for a birthday. I can’t wait to experiment more with these.
Here’s how we made these for less than $2…
1. I bought white balloons and blew them up while Henry cracked some glow in the dark bracelets (this tube of 100 for $8) so they glowed. When I broke down the cost, these 10 we made cost less than $2. You could make a whole room full of them for 10 or 20 bucks. Easy and cheap!
2. We then stuck two bracelets inside each balloon. This made the balloon deflate a bit, so we blew it up a bit afterwards and tied a knot. Done! They glowed for hours, much to Henry’s delight.
