What you need: (Available at art shops and even $2 stores)

  • Colourful balloons
  • Multi-coloured curling ribbon
  • Multi-coloured glow sticks
  • Scissors
What to do:

  • Activate as many glow sticks as you have balloons (e.g. one per balloon). Ask Mum or Dad to show you how to activate the glow stick first.
  • Blow up the balloons like usual, but before tying a knot at the neck, drop a glow stick inside.
  • Tie the balloon end as usual.
  • Cut a length of curling ribbon and tie to the balloon.
  • Attach bunches of balloons around the party room (particularly around the dance floor if you have one!)
Tip: Blu-tac the balloons to the ceiling (either by the balloon or the curling ribbon) - they'll look like they're floating!
