What is everyone’s favorite Christmastime treat? Christmas crackers of course! A small tube of fun, filled with candy and toys. Well, I never could understand why they were only available at Christmastime. It still doesn’t make sense to me which is why these tubes o’ joy pop up around these parts more than once a year! I like to offer the kidlets a homemade party favor filled with sweets and treats and these are especially fun to make! Especially if you are putting some Pop Rocks in them, mmmm, crackle, crackle, pop!
Can you guess the everyday, in the bathroom item you need for these party favors?
Oh yes, the toilet paper roll! Don’t you always have a ton of them lying around for craft projects? Please tell me it’s not just me?
All you need to make thess party favors are toilet paper rolls, red napkins, ribbon, tape, and a selection of candies and/or small toys.
Stuff the larger candies or lollipops into the toilet paper roll, then wrap the roll in a red napkin and secure with tape. I always tape the napkin to the toilet paper roll efore I start rolling to help keep it in place. Trying to roll a sliding napkin, not so much fun, and these are meant to be fun!
Tie one end with ribbon. Make a nice bow, or if you are using the curling ribbon, curl it up nice!
Place any remaining candies or gum balls in the open end and tie closed with another nice bow.
Decorate (I used the party circles from my Canada Day printable) and leave out for the kidlets, or adults, to enjoy!
Yes, those are little girl hands. They had to help, I don’t blame them one bit, fun craft AND candy!
If you’re stuffing these with Pop Rocks and gum balls, feel free to invite me to your Canada Day celebration. No really, I’ll come! Crackle, crackle, pop!
