Fireworks Kids Craft Project
Looking for a fun and inexpensive craft for your kids for Memorial Day or the 4th of July? Let the glitter and creativity flow with this simple “fireworks” project- and remember, the process is just as much fun for the child as the end product. This would be a great project to do inside on a rainy day, or outside if you are having a party, barbecue, or celebration during one of the long holiday weekends. Since it only requires a few items to make this craft, it’s even something you could do while you wait for your local fireworks show to begin, and keep the kids entertained so they don’t get too restless 🙂
What You’ll Need:

What To Do
This is a super simple and fast craft that’s great for a wide range of ages. Your little ones will enjoy helping squeeze the glue out (great fine motor skills practice!) and your older kids ail enjoy making more intricate firework designs. Simply start by drawing “fireworks” onto the construction paper (we chose black paper to represent the night sky) with your glue. My artist chose to make a lot of stars and asterisk symbols (his representation of fireworks) but you can get as creative as you would like here. Next, shake your glitter onto the wet glue. Once your glue is covered, shake off any excess or use the excess to cover any parts left uncovered. Repeat the process to fill up your “night sky.” Let the paper dry flat and then enjoy your sparkly work of art!
I love kids craft projects like this, because they allow kids to be as creative as they want to be, and only requires a few materials to complete! They can choose from any color of paper or glitter that you have on hand, and can draw any shape their imagination can conjore up!
