Do your kids love fireworks? My son loves them, but Little Sister isn’t a big fan of them. To share in my son’s excitement, we gathered up 20 fireworks crafts for kids. We have not decided what we are making this year but I do know that Little Sister’s will have glitter (or sparkle as she calls it!)…. Lol!
There are so many different ways to make fireworks using everyday objects.
- I made these homemade firework stamps using pipe cleaners for my then toddler before taking him to see the real ones + see the sparkly fireworks Juggling with Kids made after being inspired by ours (so pretty!).
- We also made toothpick fireworks and cool-looking ones made with bingo dot markers.
- Sassy Deals made these clever fireworks using a fork and also made a homemade straw stamp.
- Did you know that you could make fireworks in a jar? See how over at Gift of Curiosity.
- Frogs and Snails and Puppy Dog Tails used an empty toilet paper tube to make a homemade stamp craft.
- Stop by One Perfect Day to see how they made glittery fireworks.
- School Time Snippets made awesome-looking ones with salt and glue. So fun!
- A Thrifty Mom made ground fireworks using toilet paper tubes.
- Spoonful has a tutorial for making fireworks using a straw and also ‘glitterworks.’
- Fantastic Fun and Learning made rings using pipe cleaners.
- Head over to Toddler Approved to see the fizzing fireworks activity they did.
Whether using real sparklers or pretend ones, here are 5 DIY ideas:
