Fourth of July Fireworks: Art for Kids

firework-july

Create fireworks of your own this Fourth of July! Your crafty kiddo can get artsy, making their own shimmering display—on a piece of paper. This easy art activity is the perfect party activity. Keep your pint-sized guests busy during a holiday backyard bash and set up a crafting table. After the artwork dries, hang the July 4th firework designs up as part décor!

Materials You’ll Need

  • Black or dark blue poster board
  • Clear-drying school glue
  • Glitter

How-to Art Activity Steps

  1. Dot the glue onto the poster board, creating a fireworks design. If squeezing glue directly from the bottle is tricky for your child, pour it onto a paper plate. Your child can drip a cotton swap or thin brush into the glue, painting it on to the paper.
  2. Sprinkle glitter over the glue.
  3. Shake the excess glitter off the paper. Save the leftover sparkles for another firework art masterpiece!
  4. Let the glue dry completely.

If the glue and glitter activity is too messy for your party, or your child doesn’t want to wait to hang up their art, use chalk instead. Your child can draw a firework-inspired design onto the poster paper. The brightly-hued sidewalk chalk will stand out on the dark poster board.
