  1. Fill your favor boxes with an assortment of games, treats and small toys that keep the kids entertained. Ideas include: noise makers, bouncy balloons, foam air planes, etc.
  2. Inflate your balloons using the Balloon Time Helium Tank.
  3. Tie the balloons with string and attach to the filled favor boxes.
  4. Use the white paint pen to write an hour on each balloon, such as 8 PM, 10 PM, etc.
  5. Have the kids open one box every time the clock strikes the hour – all the way until midnight!
