Macaroni Kid Crafts - DIY New Years Eve Poppers

Make These Fun New Year's Poppers Filled With Fun!

December 27, 2020

New Year's Eve, also known as Old Year's Day or Saint Sylvester's Day is celebrated on the last day of the year, December 31. We usually celebrate with a family celebration and my kids love opening poppers. Here are some poppers you can make with the kids and then use them to celebrate!

What You Need

  • Empty toilet paper rolls
  • any festive wrapping paper or tissue paper
  • ribbon
  • scissors or craft knife
  • tape
  • Candy, trinkets, Mardi Gras beads, crayons, anything to fill up the poppers

How To Make Your Own Poppers

  1. Start by measuring out enough wrapping paper to cover the roll but also leave extra on the ends to tie up with ribbon. (see photo)
  2. Next, cut the roll in half almost completely, but leave a small area attached (as seen in photo). Cutting will make it easier to rip open the popper when it's covered.
  3. Cover the roll and tie up one end with ribbon.
  4. Fill the roll with candy, etc.
  5. Tie up the other end.
  6. Give them out as a party favor along with noise makers!
