For us in the UK, today is bonfire night (or Guy fawkes day depending on what you call it!). Fireworks have been going off everywhere and were expecting to see some pretty big displays on around our house tonight! We love watching the fireworks, They’re so beautiful and colourful and From the safety of our house my son doesn’t worry about the bangs! To celebrate the occasion we thought we would make some Q-tip painted fireworks. How cool do all those bright colours look?!
You will need:
A few coloured paints some Q-tips Black card
To make your fireworks, all you have to do is dip your Q-tips into your paint and then on to your black paper! Alternating colours gives them a great effect!
You can paint your fireworks in all different shapes, We mostly used star, circle and spiral shapes. Young children will find it easier to dot the colours randomly, which looks great too! If you are painting with young children this is a great opportunity to practise learning colours!
To finish your Q-tip painted fireworks ; just dip your Q-tip into some white paint and lightly streak some rocket trails below each shape!
Your Super simple Q-tip Fireworks are finished, such a fun and easy craft!
Remember, remember the 5th November! Guy Fawkes night is right around the corner and we’ve already been seeing fireworks all around. My son loves to watch them from our window and the various colours we’ve seen gave inspiration to these bonfire night scrap paper fireworks. Not only do we love how cute these pictures turned out, we also love that our scrap paper box is no longer overflowing! These pictures are so simple to make that they are perfect for pre-schoolers as well as older children too.
I’d love to see how your firework pictures turned out. Grownups, did you know you can now share them with me on Facebook and Twitter?
You will need
Coloured Scrap paper Black paper Scissors Glue
These Pictures are really simple and easy to make. All you need to do is cut your scrap paper into small strips, it doesn’t matter if they are wonky or different lengths, that just adds to the effect!
Take your black paper and simply glue down your strips in circular shapes to create your colourful fireworks. You can even add some orange and yellow strips to the bottom of your paper to create a bonfire!
I hope you all have an amazing time watching the fireworks and remember to stay safe this Guy Fawkes night!
