Glow Sticks and Balloons

Glow Stick Balloon (6)

We’re having a dreary wet Memorial Day, but we’re not letting that stop the fun! In lieu of a parade or fireworks, we created our own display at home!

Enlist your child’s help in snapping glow sticks – Travis’s face lit up for each new one we set aglow, no matter how many times he’d seen it happen.

Slightly blow up a balloon to let it stretch out a bit, then carefully insert a lit glow stick into each.

Blow up the balloon the rest of the way and tie off.

Let the illuminated fun begin! For the best results, dim the lights or wait until dark.
