Today we are getting in the spirit of New Years- whoop whoop!! Time to grab your kiddos and do some crafting. Especially a nice indoor project like this- Brrrr it’s chilly today!! I found this project originally here and couldn’t resist but try it myself. After all who doesn’t love the poppers on New years eve night?? These are a much safer route than the explosive fireworks that many are tempted by, especially if you have wee little ones. Ready to get poppin?
Marchers to decorate
Balloons- larger in size
Fun items to fill the cups- confetti,puff balls, etc.
First have the kids decorate the outside of the cups, you like my Lucy drawing? hahahah
Next stab a hole in the bottom of the cup and cut out the entire bottom….
Creating a little tunnel from your cup
Next tie your balloon and snip off the end….
Stretch the balloon around the base of your cup to create a suction. This is when you want to make sure your balloon is big enough to stretch, sadly my silver ones were too small! Oops!
Fill your cup with goodies!
And bombs away!!
(tip- use lightweight items to launch, when I used heavier items it did not work as well)
Now time to clean up the mess?
