Plants vs Zombies Pom Pom Popper

Plants vs Zombies Pom Pom Popper

When my littles turned eight, they were determined to have a Plants vs Zombies Birthday Party.  And no birthday is complete without a little birthday party crafting!  All of the kids made one of these Pom Pom Poppers in between games of lazer tag.

These are very simple to make!  I had everything prepared before the party so that the kids just assembled poppers and played.


Balloons (10)

Plastic cups (20)

Pom Poms (lots)


Black sharpie (optional)

White paint pen (optional)

Plants vs Zombies Pom Pom Popper

Cut the bottoms off of all of the cups.  Draw eyes on the balloons with sharpie and a paint pen.  Tie the balloon closed and cut a small hole at the other end.  Place two cups together and stretch a balloon overtop.  Have the kids place pom poms in the open cup, pull back on the tied end of the balloon and watch them fly!!

I love that with eyes they look like a Frozen Pea Shooter from PvsZ!  Perfect tie into our party!!
