I’m a bit last minute posting these as today is Bonfire Night in the UK, but they came out so well I didn’t want to wait for New Year.
Firework Spin Art Pictures
These came out brilliantly on black card, especially when we added a bit of glitter.
Paint – we got ours from The Consortium
Cut the cardboard so it fits neatly inside the salad spinner.
Drop paint ( and glitter if you want ) onto the paper.
Spin the salad spinner.
Admire your picture.
Try different types of paper, do some work better than others?
What happens if you water down the paint.
Filter Paper Firework Pictures
Washable felt tip pens
Pipette – we got ours from Learning Resources
Draw firework shapes on the filter paper.
Drop water onto the filter paper.
Watch the colours run and leave to dry.
Can you try different types of pens? Does permanent marker work?
Other firework activity ideas
Make fun firework pictures with conkers like Rainy Day Mum.
Mum in the Madhouse has some great firework crafts made with cable ties.
Or how about a firework scratch art picture?
Finally, we love these edible sparklers from Red Ted Art.
