Instructions

I really do not have an issue using toilet roll tubes for crafting, but if you are you can buy cardboard tubes or reuse the ones from inside kitchen rolls or wrapping paper.  The UK government states that as long as toilet rolls look clean then they are fine to use for crafting.

Knot the open end of each balloon like you would if you had blown it up with air and then cut each balloon in half using a pair of scissors.  Place the cut end of the balloon over the end of the toilet roll,

Secure the balloon top the toilet roll with strong tape, we used duck tape.

Next decorate the tube with washi tape.  I am a big fan of washi tape for children as it is perfect for small hands and being a type of paper masking tape it is very simple for kids to tear.

As you can see the boys decided to use a selection of the tapes we have but mostly gold.  I keep my tapes on ribbon storage racks so that they are easy for the boys to pick and use.

We filled our poppers with metallic confetti, but if you want to make less mess then you can use small pompoms.
