Glow-in-the-Dark Balloons

Last night, we broke out the glow sticks in our house.  Yes, we get crazy around here on the weekends!  Instead of just playing with the glow sticks, we thought it would be fun to see what they did inside of balloons.  They were a little tricky to blow up as the balloons I had on hand weren't that big, but with the help of my husband, we figured it out.

Caden loved keeping the house dark and trying to keep the balloons in the air.

That is until they popped.  Actually, he loved that too.  But the dog sure didn't.  I would recommend if you are going to do this activity at home, find glow sticks with soft edges.  Our were the necklace type that had a plastic hook on the end which was causing the balloons to pop.  Like I said, Caden loved it, but I know many children that wouldn't.  You can find glow sticks at the dollar store or Michael's dollar bins.

What did you do this weekend?
