Have you ever used one of those party poppers that make a loud crack when you pull them apart? The kind that spray confetti and glitter everywhere? I loved those as a kid, they kind of scared me, but they were so exhilarating! My kids are a bit too young for those loud poppers, so I thought I would make some easy kid friendly party poppers to use at Baby Girl’s birthday party this weekend. These party poppers are so quick and easy to make, you probably already have the supplies at home.
I made the first party popper in just a few minutes while my kids were playing in the other room. I filled it with confetti then walked over and sat down next to them. I said “want to get messy?” and they both immediately squealed with delight. I pulled back the balloon and confetti shot everywhere, it was pure bliss! The best part was, they picked up every piece so we could do it again.
Here’s how I made this easy kid friendly party popper.
- Small plastic cup
- Craft knife
- Washi Tape (optional)
Snip the top off of the balloon then tie the end in a knot.
Cut a whole in the bottom of the cup. Leave the outer edge in tack for support.
Slip the balloon over the bottom of the cup. I chose to add some washi tape for decoration, but the balloon will hold securely on its own without any adhesive. Then fill it with confetti and have some fun!
I make a lot of bee and honeycomb themed items for my Etsy shop and Little Lady insists on saving these extra pieces. They definitely came in handy here as confetti, glad we kept them. You can also use pom poms or even cotton balls, anything light weight.
My kids seriously cannot get enough of these. I still can’t get over how they immediately pick up every tiny piece after it sprays all over the floor. Good fun had by all.
What celebration would you use these party poppers for?
