Glitter Fireworks Painting
Crafting with glitter can be messy, but it’s always fun! What a great way to really make your art project sparkle.
This glitter fireworks painting contains the glitter mess a little by doing the project inside a cardboard box. Painting fireworks are common in our household around the 4th of July, as well as during New Years celebrations.
Plus, they always make me think of our family vacations to Disney World. So get out the glitter and get creating! You only need a couple household craft items to make this fun project.
What you need for the glitter fireworks painting:
Black card stock or construction paper
Glitter (of any color)
Flat, empty box
How to make the glitter fireworks painting:
Place black paper inside the empty box to contain the glitter. If you don’t have black paper, you can do this project on any color of paper, but the black makes a nice night sky backdrop for your fireworks.
Use the glue to create fireworks patterns on the paper. Children will love to get creative making their firework shapes with glue!
After creating each firework, sprinkle a liberal amount of glitter over the top of the glue until it is completely covered.
We like to work one firework at a time in case the children like to make different colors for each firework.
Carefully lift the paper and shake off the excess glitter into the box.
Place the paper back in the box and draw another firework. Continue the above process until the paper is covered with fireworks.
Make this for the 4th of July
Choose glitter that turns your glitter fireworks painting patriotic! Maybe you might want to try some blue and red glitter to celebrate and turn this into a real 4th of July fireworks painting.
Get creative and have fun with this project.
