Fireworks painting is a quick and easy 4th of July kids craft activity that can keep little ones entertained for ages! Lots of fun for kids ages 2-10!
Start by cutting a toilet paper roll into 2″ long fringes. Open up the fringe so that it sits flat against the table, and place the roll on to a paper plate that has been covered in a layer of tempera or acrylic paint. For our fireworks we used four rolls/plates – red, white, blue, and a glittery mix of all three colors.
Just take the roll, dip the fringe in paint, and stamp it on to your paper. Easy peasy!
I knew that my 4-year-old would love this activity, but I didn’t realize how much fun my older boys (ages 8 & 9) would have with it too! They each made several different paintings and kept busy for nearly an hour!
So much fun! I love quick and easy holiday kid’s crafts that don’t require a lot of prep work or time, and these fireworks paintings are perfect!
