Fun craft: Paint fireworks

Filed under: Activities: Babies

If you live in The States, you're probably putting some hot dogs on the grill right now. And, if your kids are anything like mine, they're asking when the fireworks are going to start.

While you're waiting for the food to cook, why not have some fun making a fireworks craft? This is a good idea that would definitely look cute and festive.

You'll need:

A piece of paper (blue might be good for the night sky)
A paintbrush or dropper
Several colors of watered-down paint
A straw

Take the paintbrush or dropper and put drops of the watered-down paint on the paper. Use a straw to blow the drops of paint outwards, so that they look like fireworks. If you want to make them a little more festive, try using iridescent paint to make the fireworks sparkle.

What an easy craft! The best part? Nobody gets burned!
