Fun to make and even more fun to play with! Kids will love to throw their homemade "firecracker" in the air and watch the curled ribbon flutter, play tag, play hot potato, and more - how creative can they get?
What you'll need:
toilet paper roll
tissue or construction paper (preferably red or blue)
popsicle stick or chopstick
ribbon or pipe cleaners
decorations like stickers, glitter, pompoms, or whatever else you have on hand
glue or tape
Start by taking your toilet paper roll and covering it with tissue or construction paper. Next, decorate the cylinder with stickers, glitter, pompoms or any other craft items you can find. Next, tape or glue a stick (i.e. popsicle stick, chopstick, skewer stick with the pointy end sanded down) and tape one end to the inside of the toilet paper roll. At the other end, attach curled ribbon (or pipe cleaners).
