What do you do with all your coffee pods after they’ve been used? I used to just throw mine away, but lately, I’ve been looking for ways to upcycle them. I came up with a fun project that your kids are going to love. These pods are the perfect size for toddlers and preschoolers to make confetti poppers!
Confetti Poppers with Coffee Pods
Here’s what you need:
- Balloons – in water balloon size
- Empty, clean, and dry coffee pods
- Confetti (You can make it with colored paper and a hole puncher or purchase it)
- Exacto knife
These are so simple and easy to make. I had about 5 done in less than 5 minutes. Cut out the bottom of the pod with an exacto knife. Then, knot the balloon, cut the end off, and pull it about halfway over the bottom of the pod. Then, add confetti. Pull the knot down and let the confetti FLY!! That’s it!
Follow the picture tutorial below:
My preschooler LOVED this. We went outside, and she kept gathering up the confetti and refilling her cup. This is going to be perfect for our little New Year’s Eve celebration.
Here she is in action shooting her snowflake confetti:
How do you like to drink your coffee? Do you ever upcycle your coffee pods?
