Like a lot of kids my son loves looking at fireworks and with Bonfire Night on the horizon I thought it would be fun to try out a little activity to help get him excited about it! This would be a great fireworks craft for preschoolers or those in the first few years of school and it could easily be used as a Diwali, Thanksgiving or New Years Eve craft too!
What you will need:
Black paper or card
Glitter (arguably you might not need glitter, but we always need to use glitter!)
Wool / yarn
Rubber, foam or wood block for stamping
How to make your super cute fireworks craft:
Firstly you will need to make a stamp. I did this using an old foam stamp and winding some wool round and round it. To secure the wool I just tied the two loose ends in a knot at the back and that lasted the duration of the printing. If you don’t have a foam stamp that you can re-purpose then rubber or wood would be fine, I even looked at some jam jars to get the right surface! You want it to be as flat as possible though otherwise some areas will get more pressure than others.
Don’t forget to add loads of glitter, we used a mix of fine and err… slightly more cheap and nasty? Thankfully my son doesn’t care what kind of glitter it is as long as he gets to play with it and it makes your fireworks look super sparkly!
