I thought that today’s make should be a bit of a game too….

What You’ll Need

  • 2 plastic cups – stacked one inside the other to strengthen the pom-pom launcher
  • 1 balloon – I had 2 to hand just in case we messed up the first attempt (which we did!)
  • A pom-pom
  • Scissors
  • Duct tape (not pictured)

We cut approximately two-thirds of the plastic cups off and then covered the sharp, cut edge with duct tape.

We cut the tip off the balloon and then pulled the cut, open end over the lip of the plastic cups.  We tied a knot in the end of the balloon and we were ready to go….

Put the pom-pom inside the launcher, pull back the knot on the balloon and let go!

Boo went crazy for our homemade pom-pom launcher.  He kept trying to fire it at the santa decoration at the top of our Christmas tree and that pom-pom certainly could fly!

Day #97 DONE! 3 to go!
