Somehow if you prefer DIY your own balloons to save some cash and have some fun during the process,
Let me teach you this two ways:

Materials:
– LED lights (DIY or repurpose a dollar store keychain)
– Balloons

Step 1: Gather your LEDs

This part can be as simple or complicated as you desire. One option is to craft your own LED lights, while the other is to purchase them powered and ready to go.

If you choose to get geeky and craft your own LEDs, you’ll need the following:
– 5-10 small LEDs (available online or at Radio Shack)
– 5-10 3-volt batteries
– Tape

To assemble the LEDs, place the “legs” of an LED on either side of a battery. It should light up right away. If it doesn’t, flip the battery around. On the day of the party, tape the LED to the battery to secure it in place. Repeat this process until all your LEDs are lit.

If you choose to purchase powered LEDs, head to your local Dollar Store or party supply store and hunt for LED accessories. I was able to find LED keychains that pulse a variety of colors when powered.

Step 2: Assemble the balloons

If you plan to blow your balloons up with helium, grab your LEDs and head to the party store. Before you fill a balloon with helium, turn on an LED light and insert it into the balloon.

Once they’re tied and attached to some string, scatter the balloons around the party and watch as your glowing balloons light up the scene.

If your LEDs are still glowing by the time your party ends, pop the balloons, remove the LEDs, turn them off, and save them for your next celebration.

The second method (The light stick-balloon):

By using this method, you can either insert the whole light stick into the balloon or you can cut the light stick and extract the solution in it. If you are choosing to cut the light stick please be cautions. it is not advisable to do it but it will give you a better effect.
CAUTION:
#1 THE BROKEN GLASS IN THE LIGHT STICK.
#2 THE CHEMICAL MAY BE HARMFUL TO SKIN.
#3 PLEASE DO WEAR PROTECTIVE GEARS LIKE GOGGLES ANDS GLOVES.
Alternatively you can purchase this special powder.
