There are few things as fun as confetti for a Fourth of July craft. These confetti poppers only require a few supplies from Consumer Crafts and can be easily made ahead of time! I’m planning on having my kids decorate a ton of these to put on all the tables for our annual 4th of July get-together. They’re the perfect prop for those Instagram selfies and boomerangs!
Supplies needed to make Fourth of July Craft Confetti Poppers:
- Paper Craft Rolls
- Glitter USA Stickers (or any Patriotic Stickers)
- Washi Tape
- Paper Confetti
Depending on the age and abilities of your children, you may want to complete the assembly of the Fourth of July craft confetti poppers first and then allow them to decorate and enjoy later.
Making these poppers is a fun activity but please keep in mind that balloons are not recommended for children younger than the ages of 8. To begin assembly, tie the end of a balloon with a knot and cut about 1″ above that knot. Discard unneeded balloon piece.
Pull open the cut edge of balloon and spread around paper craft roll. Make sure the balloon fits securely around the tube.
Use a piece of washi tape to secure the edge of the balloon to the tube. Consumer Crafts has tons of fun washi tape designs to choose from!
Now the fun part…decorating! Spread out some patriotic themed stickers and allow the kids to decorate their Fourth of July craft confetti poppers any way they want!
Once the kids are happy with the look of their poppers, have them grab a handful of tissue paper confetti and drop it into the popper. Remind them not to pack it down too much or the confetti won’t pop out!
Seeing the huge grin that my son had when the confetti fell around him was pure joy! Children and adults alike will totally enjoy these confetti poppers!
Hope you and your kids enjoy making these Fourth of July craft confetti poppers as much as we did. They’re going to make the perfect holiday selfies!
