Every year on New Year’s Day we have a New Year’s celebration at noon.
This year we are making simple homemade confetti poppers to set off when the clock strikes 12:00.
It’s just one of a few fun New Year’s STEM activities you could do this year as you celebrate New Year’s with kids.
Homemade Confetti Poppers
Each DIY confetti popper was created with a balloon and empty plastic bottle.
Making the popper is very simple. I cut the top portion off each bottle and then stretched the mouth of a balloon over the bottle’s mouth.
To protect little hands from the cut-edge of the bottle, I covered it with some tape.
Want to decorate it a bit? Let the kids use permanent markers to decorate the bottle with colorful designs!
Then you just need confetti, which is a perfect opportunity for kids to work on cutting skills.
On New Year’s Day put a handful of confetti into the popper. Right before the clock strikes 12:00, hold onto the balloon and bottle mouth, pull back on the balloon….
…and let the confetti fly!
This is just one fun kid-friendly New Years activity.
