DIY Party Blower Craft for Kids

With the new year being just around the corner, I’ve been looking for fun, festive crafts and activities for toddlers. Because I know the kids won’t get to bed on time (and thus let mommy and daddy ring in the new year), unless there are some super creative activities to help them celebrate and burn off energy.

What better way to release that energy than to let the party animal in them out for some fun!

I started working on a quick DIY party blower idea and then adapted it to a party animal craft I found from Kix to complete my DIY New Year’s craft.

Materials

  • Paper plate
  • Paint
  • Pom poms
  • Straw
  • 2″x6″ paper
  • Scotch Tape
  • Tissue Paper

Let your kids paint one side of the paper plate red or a pinkish color (for the party animal’s mouth).

Set aside to dry for an hour or two and gather materials to create the blower piece.

You can use a full-size straw or cut in half for a better fit. Cut up some left over wrapping paper approximately 2-inches by 6-inches. Fold the sides so that they meet in the center to create a seam. Secure with scotch tape.

(You can use a pencil or straw to curl in easier and temporarily clip it so it remains curled after blowing.) Attach the other end to the straw and also secure with tape. You can add some tissue paper to create a more festive look with fringe!

Have your kid paint the other side of the plate another bright color.

Once dry, use a hot glue gun to attach the pom pom eyes to the top of the plate. Make sure the eyes are at a 90 degree angle so they look straight out.

Poke a hole in the center of the plate to insert the blower and complete the craft!

Easy DIY kids craft to ring in the New Year! Make a fun party blower at home using a paper plate, straw and paint! A fun activity for birthday parties too!

Although it wasn’t intentional, our party animal ended up looking more like a party frog :). This is a great New Year’s craft to make with kids of all ages and can also be used to celebrate birthdays and other parties throughout the year!
