It’s been above 100 degrees all weekend here and I’ve been making every excuse to stay indoors.
Pretty sad that I was longing for summer weather all winter long and now that it’s here, I’m trying to keep cool. (#summerfail)
Oh, well. The grass is always greener, right?
Either way, it’s a good excuse to stay inside and have some DIY fun instead!
There is a certain birthday coming up this week and I couldn’t resist having a little fun making a mess and basking in all of the red, white, and blue glory.
Today’s DIY will let you do just that too! (Sorry about the mess in advance. This is your only warning, but the fun is well worth it, I promise.)
These fourth of July poppers are a cinch to make, really fun to play with, and the perfect activity for the kids that doesn’t involve flames, explosives, or the emergency room. Not too shabby, right?
You only need a few items to put these together and they take no time at all to make.
I chose to use these awesome crackers snaps for some added fun (they are the things that give the poppers a loud bang when you pull them apart) but you definitely don’t need them to make this project. It’s just a fun added element!
- Tissue Paper – Your choice of colors, I used red, navy, and royal blue
- Empty Toilet Paper Rolls
- Curling Ribbon
- Cracker Snaps (optional)
Once cut, roll your toilet paper roll with your tissue paper and secure with tape.
I definitely see these being a summer staple and a new tradition for the littles in your life too!
