These DIY confetti popper rockets are a fun craft project for the Fourth of July. It's a safe alternative to fireworks that won't freak out the family dog, and they would make a great addition to a kid's party year round.
The best part about these rockets are the trap doors. Kids pull the string and a compartment opens up, dropping confetti on their heads. Brenda at Alphamom made these with her daughter using toilet paper tubes, colored paper, confetti, string, tape, beads, and ribbons.
