Boo Balloons

Isn't it funny how ghosts rear their heads at this time of year? They seem almost charming at first, but when darkness falls, those innocent expressions are a bit more menacing.

Materials

  • Green eight-hour light sticks
  • White balloons
  • Black marker
  • Transparent tape

Steps

  1. Step 1

    Snap one or two green eight-hour light sticks so they glow, and insert them into a white balloon.

  2. Step 2

    Inflate balloon, and tie closed. Use a black marker to draw the ghost's ghastly visage.

  3. Step 3

    Repeat to make his friends. Then hang ghosts with transparent tape, and lower the lights.
