    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.

      Amazing idea! Now if only we could make it get dark a little earlier in the summer….We might use this for our summer outdoor movie nights!

      My 18 month old will love this! He just started loving balloons in general, so this would be even more fun!

      I like the idea with using helium and having them float up above at a party. Very clever!
