I’ll admit it. Sometimes I leave art project preparation for the last minute. Today, it happened to be right before the kids arrived. I knew I wanted to do a Fourth of July craft, so I did a little perusing on Pinterest and found a fun project idea for firework art on No Time for Flashcards.
I didn’t have any muffin tin liners, so we traced a jar to make perfect circles and cut them out from white paper. It was good practice for the kids to trace and cut out the circles. I cut out the circles in advance for the youngest member of our group.
Next the kids made cuts in the circles at their discretion.
We used red, white and blue paint with silver glitter mixed in to decorate our fireworks. As you can see, someone noticed I was documenting the process. 🙂
Last, we glued the paper fireworks onto a black “night sky.”
This project was a great success with my group including a 3 year old, a 5 year old and a ten year old, making this a great choice for a mixed age group. I hope you and your kids enjoy this Fourth of July craft as well!Please share!
