Has your social media feed started to fill up with adorable back to school pictures yet? Mine has! School is getting underway and the boys and I were joking about having a “lightbulb” moment the other day which gave me a perfect idea for a silly and fun back to school picture idea with lightbulb balloons!

To make lightbulb balloons you’ll need:

Fill your balloons with helium using your Balloon Time tank. Tie some fishing line to the balloons and secure them to the tank until you’re ready to use them.

Print and cut out the bottoms of the lightbulbs from this printable.

I found the easiest way to get these on is to wrap them around the fishing line and secure with staples to make a circle (you could use tape too).

Then taping from the inside secure the printable to the balloon with a few pieces of tape.

You could make a whole bouquet for a back to school surprise too. Or use to give an extra little gift to celebrate a great job. I love how these turned out. So much fun and a cute way to celebrate all the bright ideas your kids will have in the next year.

I keep a Balloon Time Helium Tank on hand for fun ideas like this. It makes creating impromptu surprises and gifts so much easier and much more magical. Plus, balloons just make me happy! Happy back to school!

    Been looking all over for a giant light bulb prop that was not outrageously expensive. Will use this as a gift for my niece who just graduated valedictorian of her class. Thank you. Her future is bright!

    Thank you so much for this wonderful idea! We have a senior high improv group with a light bulb logo. We are having a reunion/graduation party in a park since Covid-19 obliterated their spring show schedule at school. Thank you for making the decorations special.
