I am currently planning a DIY Spy Party for my middle son's 7th birthday. Given that he and his friends will be training to be spies, I knew I needed some sort of target practice, but I didn't want to give all the kids guns, so... I thought it would be fun to make some pool noodle pom pom shooters. I got the idea for a pool noodle pom pom shooter from FSPDT. (You should totally check out her version if you get a chance.)
For our version, I used black balloons and "moustache/secret disguise" duck tape. Cute, right? I love how easy and inexpensive these were to make. Here's all you need to do:
1) Use a serrated bread knife to cut a pool noodle into short pieces. I made mine slightly taller than the width of the duck tape.
2) Cut the top off a balloon with a pair of scissors.
3) Place the balloon onto the pool noodle, and tie the top into a knot.
4) Secure the balloon to the pool noodle with duck tape.
These are perfect for my son's spy party, but they would be fun any time. My boys have been playing with them ever since I made them. Trust me... they will keep your little ones entertained for hours!
Do you have a little one that would like these pool noodle pom pom shooters?
