Steps in creating your DIY 4th of July Confetti Poppers
Step 1 Get the toilet paper roll and the balloon. Cut a small hole in the top part of the blue balloon, which should at least fit the hole of the toilet paper roll. Next, insert one end of the toilet paper roll into the balloon.
Step 2 Using the blue masking tape, secure the balloon to the toilet paper roll. Wrap it around while holding it together - you can also wrap it around twice to make sure the balloon will not be easily pulled out.
Step 3 Measure and cut a piece of bond paper to fit the toilet paper roll. Glue one end of the white paper to the toilet paper roll, wrap it around, and secure it with glue.
Step 4 Tie the end of the balloon to close it.

Step 5 Using a red colored paper or a glitter sticker paper, cut a thin strip of paper. Or if you have a red colored masking tape, that will also do! Wrap it around the top part of the toilet paper roll.
Step 6 Next, cut out small stars on red and blue glitter sticker papers. While you’re at it, you can also do some storytelling as to why these stars are on our flag! After cutting out stars, decorate them around the confetti popper!
Step 7 Put the confetti inside the DIY confetti popper. There are ready-made confetti sold in stores, or you can just make your own using colored papers and a hole puncher! Carefully pour the confetti inside, filling at least half of the popper. To use it, just pull the tied end of the balloon and let go! The colorful confetti will be flying out in no time, making your celebration as lively and festive as it should be!
