Looking for a Lights-On activity that will light up children faces? Something inexpensive yet engaging and fun? I've got it - a Balloon Light Bulb!
This is what you will need: Cardboard tissue roll; 5in balloon (yellow, white or clear); Aluminum foil sheet; Hot glue gun and glue sticks; Battery operated tea light; Balloon pump.
Cut 2 inch piece from cardboard tube and 6 by 3 1/2 inch piece from foil; wrap tube with foil (tucking excess inside); inflate balloon with pump; run hot glue around top edge of covered tube; place balloon (knot side down) on tube top; hot glue tea light inside tube bottom underneath balloon; write and decorate with permanent marker; use tea light on/off switch to turn on balloon bulb!
