There is something about a balloon that brings a smile to every child’s face.
Have you ever noticed?
It’s like this amazing surprise that just lights up their eyes.
What better way to create an even more amazing smile, than to turn a balloon into a light saber!?
Did you know you can create helium balloons at home? Indeed, you can!
We brought home this Balloon Time tank and started creating.
These are perfect for birthday celebrations, baby showers, or just because.
And this sweet guy…. let me just tell you, he is crazy excited about any balloon he can get his hands on.
The simplest and smallest things light up his face and this just melts my heart!
It’s like Christmas in July.
So here is what we did to make these balloon lightsabers. We created birthday invitations out of them, but you can certainly use them as party favors, or have a contest with your birthday party friends and see who can create a light saber the fastest.
In the video we show you just how easy it is to make these lightsabers step by step.
Then we print out the Star Wars invitation and fill it out.
Use the hole puncher to make a hole and then insert the curly ribbon.
Tie the curly ribbon around your balloon.
How spectacular is that? Any Star Wars friend would love to get an invitation like this.
We also show you in the video how easy it is to make a lightsaber holder for kids. My boys loved creating things with the balloons. It is a great way to encourage creativity and an opportunity to learn about helium and work in some science!
