We love celebrating Independence Day but itâ€™s kind of a bummer most residential areas donâ€™t allow popping of fireworks.Â We’ve got an easy (and cheap) solution for your kids to still enjoy the 4th of July with a bang.
Materials youâ€™ll need:
- Toilet paper tubes
- Decorative paper or markers
- 12â€ balloons
- Cut some paper into confetti sized squares.Â Set aside.
- Next, decorate your tubes anyway you like.Â Here I just taped some patriotic themed paper to each tube.
- Then, cut a balloon in half and tie the end.Â Wrap the larger end of the balloon over one end of a tube and secure with tape.Â Try your best to keep the balloon taut but donâ€™t bend the tube.Â And thatâ€™s it.
Take your poppers and stash of confetti outside.Â To use your popper, add a heavy pinch of confetti to the tube.Â Point the tube out, pull back the balloon end and let go.Â No big bangs or smoke but still very cool!Â Donâ€™t you think?
Enjoy your holiday!

Do you put the other end of the balloon on the other side?
Love this craft. By the way, are you located on Piikea St. in HI? We lived on that street in the late 60s.
