Happy New Year Crackers
For kids, fill the celebration
crackers with small treasures,
such as plastic rings, pencil
erasers, or stickers.
- Paper towel tubes
- Wrapping paper
- Curling ribbon
- Small candies
1. Make sure the paper towel tube is clean inside and out. Cut tubes to measure approximately 6 inches long; then cut each tube in half.
2. Cut a piece of wrapping paper that is 11x6 inches. Center pieces of tube side by side on paper, leaving a 1-inch space between the tubes. Wrap paper around tubes and secure with tape.
3. Tie one end of the paper with curling ribbon. Fill the tube through the open end with candy. Tie the remaining end shut. Use scissors to curl the ends of the ribbon.
4. Have guests break tubes in half to find goodies inside.
