Before you head out to the Dollar Store to pick up duct tape, craft tape, balloons and confetti you will want to collect a few paper rolls. Toilet paper rolls make the perfect size confetti launcher, however a paper towel roll cut in half will do the trick just as well.
Dollar Store Kids Confetti Launcher
1. Wrap a piece of duct tape around the paper roll. (This will help as a little reinforcement to prevent any bending or denting.)
2. Place the open end of a balloon over one end of the paper roll then secure it with tape.
3. Decorate a paper roll with tape. You could also use paints, craft paper and/or stickers.
4. Fill the open end of the paper roll with stars confetti.
5. Head outside to celebrate.
6. Hold the upcycled confetti launcher in one hand, pull the balloon back with the other hand then let go and watch the sparkly stars fly!
How much fun are these simple Dollar Store Kids Confetti Launchers? My favorite thing about them is that they are upcycled and can be recycled as many times as you refill them.
Pin this fun upcycled creation for the 4th of July, kid’s parties and New Year’s Eve.
