With summer nights come many after-dark family activities. Outdoor concerts. Watching movies in the park. Backyard cookouts with lots of neighborhood kids.

To make those nights even more special, add a bright element of fun with Glow-in-the-Dark Balloons.

They’re easy to make with inexpensive supplies from the dollar store. Use your Glow-in-the-Dark Balloons to play a game of keep-it-up or try a silly volleyball game. The Glow-in-the-Dark Balloon can double as a bedside night light once the evening’s fun comes to an end.

Choose three glow bracelets and snap each one along the entire length to activate, then shake.

One at a time, fold a bracelet in half lengthwise and slide into a ballon. We used three bracelets for each balloon.

Once the bracelets are inside the balloon, blow it up and tie off. Your Glow-in-the-Dark Balloon is ready for showtime!
