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!
