Creating beautiful firework paintings!
I saw some beautiful firework paintings on Pinterest from Learning 4 Kids and immediately knew we had to recreate them!! Fireworks are one of my favourite things and with Guy Fawkes night last week it was a must.
You will need:
- Loo rolls
First I cut strips into three loo rolls and bent them out.
Then we squirted red, yellow and green paint onto plates and spread it around.
Next we dipped in the loo rolls and stamped them onto the paper.
We did this lots of times and overlapped the different colours to create the fireworks.
This activity is so simple and really effective. As I always say arts and crafts are really good for children as they are relaxing and expressive. They allow children to be creative and try things out. Doing arts and crafts on a theme is also fab as you can teach them about a topic or event (in this case Guy Fawkes) in a fun and interactive way.
- Cut the loo rolls to different lengths and thicknesses to create more interesting firework shapes.
- Try it on black paper for a nighttime look.
- Before the paint dries on the paper sprinkle a bit of glitter on the fireworks for extra magic!
