Using scissors cut off the tip of the balloon.
Knot the end of the balloon.
Stretch the balloon onto the cardboard tube
Cut some of the duck tape and wrap it around to cover the join where the balloon meets the cardboard tube
For a recycled version – you could use toilet roll tubes and left over holes cut from a hole punch.
Add some confetti to the top of the tube - a couple of spoonfuls is perfect depending on how big you want the confetti shower to be! To pop, pull the knotted part of the balloon back and release.
Your party poppers are now ready to use!
