4th of July confetti popper rockets by Alpha MomPatriotic Poppers

If you're not too keen on having fireworks at this year's Fourth of July family bash, consider making your own confetti popper rockets, like these shown on Alpha Mom!

Simply made using only a handful of materials such as cardboard tubes, construction paper, and confetti, these patriotic poppers contain trap doors for the confetti to come sprinkling down around your guests once the strings have been pulled. And the best part about these cool poppers -- they're just as explosive and fun, yet completely recyclable! Check out Alpha Mom for an excellent pictorial on how to create these cool confetti rockets.
