These are great alternative to messy confetti during celebrations such as birthdays, graduations, Christmas, New Year, weddings, homecoming, dance, etc. So easy to use, stays in your hand using the ring around the finger. You throw it high in the air like throwing a basketball then the colorful streamers come out. After throwing and releasing the streamers, you just gather it back up as it is all still attached to the ring around the finger. No mess and a great way to make your party memorable.
