Do you celebrate New Year’s formally with your kids? Most of the time we’re happy to have them in the bed by eight o’clock so we can watch the ball drop somewhere that’s a few hours ahead of our time. I know, we’re a wild crew! That being said, this year I thought I could be a little more festive and try to have some fun (kid friendly fun of course). Let me show you how to create an easy confetti popper for New Years from a toilet paper roll!

The kids will be so excited. Anything that explodes glitter or confetti makes kids excited, right?

I’m all about being a little more crafty this year around the holidays. My kids loved when I created a fun Advent calendar punch box and a carved pumpkin from styrofoam! Why not keep it rolling with more crafty holiday fun!

These confetti poppers or confetti cannon’s are so easy to make.

The best part about how easy they are is that the kids can create them all by themselves with just a few materials!

Materials needed to create a toilet paper tube confetti popper from a toilet paper roll:

  • Toilet paper rolls
  • Tissue paper or wrapping paper
  • Tape
  • Confetti or glitter
  • Balloons
  • Scissors
  • Ribbon (not necessary but it helps jazz it up!)

How to make a Confetti Cannon from a toilet paper tube;

  1. Start by cutting the balloon right below the neck
  2. Place the balloon over the end of the toilet paper roll. Make sure there is enough “slack” in the end of the balloon that you can easily pull back and “pop” it.
  3. Roll your toilet paper roll in tissue paper or wrapping paper to decorate it.
  4. Decorate the roll however you choose. I added ribbon to cover up the ends.
  5. Pour the confetti inside the confetti cannon!
  6. Pull back on the balloon, release it and watch it rain confetti!
