Confetti Balloon

This craft is reprinted courtesy of BalloonTime.com.

At the stroke of midnight, you and your guests can pop the balloons to ignite a confetti explosion! Or if you are hosting a Mardi Gras party it’s the perfect showstopper.


Less than 1/4 cup of foil confetti for each balloon





Prior to inflating, put some foil confetti inside each balloon. For the balloons to float, you have to use less than a 1/4 cup of confetti inside each one. However, if you use more than 1/4 cup of confetti, you can set the balloons upside-down on a flat surface, and they will stand up and still look very festive.

    It is an interesting idea and my kids liked it almost as much as they like popping bubble wrap
