We have a serious tape problem in our house. We never have enough of it! I have set out to change this by buying it in bulk. When I came across this pack of rainbow colors electrical tape I fell in love. I looked very similar to that heart-shaped eyes emoji. Of course, I may have gone a little overboard with taping things, but I needed to explore the range of this pack of tape. These Rainbow Rattle Stix are inspired by Thunder Sticks which are a huge part of sporting events. They are loud and fun. Ours are definitely not as noisy, but still fun.

The Lowdown: 
  1. Acquire a cardboard roll.
  2. Fold a piece of foil over one end and tape down.
  3. Fill the tube with a kid-sized handful or two of unpopped popcorn.
  4. Fold a piece of foil over the other end and tape down to close up the tube.
  5. Cover the tube with rainbow color electrical tape. Alternate colors and make any pattern you like. You could even use other types of colorful tape - masking, washi, or duct tape.
