Confetti Popper Toilet Directions

  1. Knot the open end of each balloon like you would if you had blown it up with air.
  2. Cut each balloon in half using a pair of scissors or a rotary cutter and mat.
  3. Take the knotted half of the balloon and stretch it over one end of a toilet paper tube. Secure the balloon with a piece of duct tape.
  4. Now, the fun part! Decorate the toilet paper tube using the paint markers and your creativity.
  5. Punch holes in the construction paper with the paper punch.
  6. Fill the Confetti Poppers with the paper circles.
  7. Holding the Confetti Poppers upright, pull down on the knotted end of the balloon and let go. The springing action will send the paper circles flying!

We can't be there to help with the clean up, but trust us, it's worth it. This easy weekend craft keeps kids busy and requires minimal supplies. Enjoy!
