My kids LOVE the 4th of July, and they wanted to make a patriotic holiday kids craft “all by ourselves” (with minimal adult assistance). I suggested that we check our recycling bin to get some inspiration, and they came up with these super awesome 4th of July fireworks paintings – created almost entirely on their own!

Supplies Needed for 4th of July Fireworks Painting:

TP Roll Firework Painting

Start by cutting a toilet paper roll into 2″ long fringes. Open up the fringe so that it lays flat against the table, and place the roll onto a paper plate that has been covered in a thin 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 the paint, and stamp it onto 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 it kept them all busy for over an hour!

  1. AWESOME…..I am grandma of 8 and we do crafts at least once a week here with grandkids . they are going to love the fireworks, thank you .
    Your ideas will help keep me on the top of the BEST GRAM EVER list.
    When I see some of this stuff I wonder why I didn’t think of it raising my family, but I am glad social media helps me think of cool things to do now.

  2. Thanks for this great, easy idea. We used it to make fireworks t shirts for the upcoming 4th of July holiday. They look amazing!
