|Big Bro and Little Bro holding their glow-in-the-dark balloons. They had an absolute blast playing with these balloons! We took some awesome special effects photos with Dear Hubby's photos that I will post in the future... Got this idea from a great blog...if it is your idea from your blog post or if you have read about this idea and know the name of the blog, please let me know...the mommy blogger had said that her hubby had loads of glow sticks and balloons from a work party so she got the idea to add them into the balloons. I tried to go back to search where this was from and cannot find it and want to give a huge shout out to you! We did this twice after I had read about this...the boys loved it, so if this was your idea, please let me know...|
Caz and her family did some cool activities with "moon balloons" and other glow projects. Here is a link to her nice post on her cool blog, A Little Learning for Two.
