Papier-Mâché Disco Ball

Materials

  • Large inflated balloon
  • String
  • Newsprint or other paper
  • Papier-mâché paste
  • Small toys and candy
  • Shiny paper or sparkly tissue paper
  • Paints and glitter

Directions

  1. Start this project 4 or 5 days ahead of your dance party.
  2. Hang a big balloon from a string and cover it with many layers of paper and paste, leaving a hole about six inches in diameter at the top of the balloon, around the string.
  3. This will take several days to dry. When dry, pop the balloon and pour in toys and candy, then cover the opening with more paper and paste.
  4. Let dry again, then decorate the outside with shiny paper paper, paints, and glitter.
  5. At midnight, let the ball drop from the ceiling and break!
