Glow in the Dark Water Balloons is the perfect summertime game after the sun goes down!
I don’t know about where you live, but here in TN it’s still pretty hot and humid out even after the sun goes down from June-August.
A water balloon fight would not be an unwelcome event!
But, a water balloon fight in the dark? The logistics aren’t really there.
But how about a glow in the dark water balloon fight?? Yes!
How is everyone seeing each other?
Well, the water balloons in hand obviously, but also you would ideally be playing right at dusk, when you can just make out the other people in the yard.
Sounds fun, right? It’s like a night time game of tag!
1. Be sure the glow sticks you purchase state that they are non-toxic.
2. Glow sticks should be placed in the water balloons by an adult. There is a chance it could crack and the chemicals inside could leak out. If you have the non-toxic sticks you will be fine, but be sure to rinse any of the chemicals off the skin as soon as possible.
3. Do not break open the glow sticks to pour the solution into a water balloon. There is glass inside that could cut you and puncture the balloon. Not a wise idea.
Note: Accidentally cracking a glow stick will not result in you getting cut by the glass inside. Most likely the crack that forms will only be large enough for the liquids inside to leak out.
It keeps their hands busy.
As they light them up, you can begin putting them in the water balloons.
Both the water balloons and glow sticks can be found at the dollar store. You can’t beat summer fun that only costs a few dollars!
1. Gently fold the glow stick into thirds.
2. Pull the balloon completely over one end of the glow stick.
3. Continue to roll the balloon down over the glow stick.
Boom! You’re ready to add water!
Adding the glow sticks to the balloons may take some trial and error, but eventually you will get comfortable with the process and really start knocking them out!
If a glow stick does happen to crack, toss it in the trash and move on to the next one.
Use it to slowly fill up the balloons.
The glow sticks may poke and protrude inside the balloons, but they should not cause them to pop.
You can see we match glow stick colors with the balloons colors.
They’re so bright!
And afterwards, they had a lot of fun glow sticks to play with in the dark.
