BEST Kids project to date (using a Confetti Shooter). Louise

Just do it!!!
Just do it!!!

Well the name says it all – this is seriously the most FUN project I’ve done with my 4yo daughter…and we do A LOT of craft!

I spotted the ‘Confetti Shooter’ at BigW and instantly thought “That’s going to make an awesome collage”. So I threw it in the trolley and some spare ammunition to boot ;).

Miss M loves painting rainbows at the moment so I thought this would be the perfect chance to test out the ‘gun’.

Cheap and easy supplies.

You will need

‘Confetti Shooter’

Brown wrapping paper (found at most $2 stores)

Craft Glue

Paint/Sponge Brush

‘Safety’ Sunglasses

Cotton Balls

I’m sure it’s not the safest thing to play with so as a precaution we wore some safety glasses – well I couldn’t find any of those so we wore some fun fashion ones instead 😉

Firstly Miss M painted the rainbow shape with glue, secondly she made clouds using some cotton wool buds & finally the FUN part – shooting confetti all over the rainbow :).

Miss M was beside herself with excitement!

It’s pretty clear to see the enjoyment written all over her face in these pics.

When the gun runs out...make a wish and BLOW!

A few important notes
This must be a supervised activity & glasses should be worn at all times. Don’t ‘shoot’ too close to the paper as it will shoot a hole straight through (especially if its a bit soggy from the glue). We used three rounds of ammo to complete this project.

Please try this with your kids because it is SO MUCH FUN!!!
