Stuff each toilet paper roll with an assortment of toys and candy. Then place on top of a piece of tissue paper, ensuring that there is an overhang on each side to make the tied roll ends. Tape the tissue paper in place on the toilet paper roll.
Roll it up and tape the end shut.
Use your baker’s twine to tie each end shut. Be careful not to tear the tissue paper.
It should look like this when you’re done!
Then, add some decorative stickers or foam hearts to make them pretty!
Now they are ready to be popped open!
Kids can pop the ends open and find the surprise treats inside their Valentine’s Day poppers! It’s a fun surprise and it’s not very expensive to make a bunch of these! They are great for classroom parties and exchanges. I also like to surprise my kids on Valentine’s Day with one of these in each of their spots at the breakfast table. It’s a fun way to start the day!
