pump up party ballons?

So we've got a bicycle pump just like this with the kind of end shown and we were thinking of trying to use it to blow up a bunch of long skinny party balloons for a big event coming up. We don't have a powered air compressor or anything like that but was just wondering what kind of attachment we might be able get/use for this pump that would work, or maybe another idea/suggestion/advice in that regard. thanks

I think you'd just have to have two people do it. One would have to hold the lip around the attachment that's on it while the other pumps, and then be quick to tie it off when it's the right size.

It should fit into your pumps schrader connector.

Pretty much any tip you can get a balloon over will work. I think the huff and puff method will prove faster and less hassle in the end though.

Yes, definitely, if we could get our hands on that kind of a nozzle. Will check the hardware store I guess. Thanks TI.

They're really skinny balloons, long and hard to huff and puff, we tried. Hopefully can find the nozzle type TI suggested.

We thought about that too, but these balloon types are so skinny they just won't fit over that without and we would need at least a smaller attachment, hopefully like the one in the photo like TI posted. thanks

Going to the hardware store to see if they have a suitable attachment for the schrader connector of our pump. They probably won't though.
