Make Cute Halloween Ballon Decor With Glow Stick Bracelets By Super Bright
I searched Pinterest for some ideas on what to do with glow sticks and I found a cute and easy craft for kids. The original pin was for a ghost balloon and I modified it a bit. My daughters made some "scary" (at least for them it's scary) zombie, pumpkin and the original ghost balloon from Pinterest. :)
- The Glow Sticks from Super Bright
- Permanent Markers
- White balloons
- bike pump (to pump air into the balloons)
Here are the instructions to make the cute/creepy Halloween balloon decors:
1. Snap the glow sticks to activate their glows. For the Super Bright glow sticks, so far, the colors we saw were blue, red/pink, yellow and green.
2. Tape both ends of the glow sticks to form a loop. This would make it easier to put into the balloons.
3. Put the bended glow stick inside the deflated balloon. I find it easier to insert the rounded part first.
4. Inflate the balloon to the desired size and tie the bottom of the balloon.
5. Draw silly, scary or funny faces on the balloon using markers.
6. Turn off the light to see your glowing balloons! :)
Both my daughters had fun doing these fun glow balloons. :) Want to see the effect?
The Glow Stick Bracelets by Super Bright comes in a tube with 100 different colored glow sticks. It also comes with the small plastic tubes to make these glow sticks into a bracelet. They glow brightly for approximately 5 hours and then the glow starts to fade away. It continued to emit light (although the emitted light becomes weaker) for up to 24 hours for me.
I'll leave some unsnapped glow sticks so we can use them when we go trick or treating this Halloween. :)
