Next, I cut 10" squares out of the wrapping paper and with my awesome
paper cutter that can make perforated cuts, I ran along the middle twice to amke sure it was nice and perforated too (once probably would have been enough, but I was paranoid that it wouldn't pull apart).
Then I filled the tubes with delicious Rolos and wrapped the paper around it, securing the ends with a skinny strip of tape (once again, if I hadn't been in such a hurry, I would have made it look nicer with curling ribbon or something; oh well, there's always next year.)
Come midnight (or 7:00pm) we pulled them apart, one person on each end, and they broke perfectly! My 19 month old was even able to help pull it apart no problem!
After we put the little guy to bed, our floor looked like this, a war zone of broken crackers, Rolos, and noise makers (which I'm sure our downstairs neighbors loved, at least it wasn't really at midnight.)
