RENTON, Wash. -- A 12-year-old girl has been suspended for the rest of the year because she brought party poppers to Nelson Middle School in Renton.

Her father, Louis Green, told KIRO News she was suspended 18 days for being in possession of an explosive material.

Party poppers are sold as toys. They have a small explosive charge that makes a popping noise and sprays confetti when you pull a string.
