Fireworks for the 4th of July

In our school, the kids are getting ready for Independence Day by making a few kid-friendly fireworks. Our Pre-K Summer Camp kids started by drawing the fireworks with a white crayon, then traced with glue and sprinkled with glitter.

Our younger 3 year old class dipped Koosh Balls in paint and printed fireworks. They added a little glitter to make it sparkle!

I'm heading to the beach soon where we'll see some fireworks of our own. Happy 4th of July!


  1. Beautiful, Ayn! Process AND product :D

  2. oooo I like the koosh ball idea!! Nice effect!

  3. Really pretty! Have great time at the beach.

  4. I just bought some little mesh sponges - I bet they would work like this too!

  5. LOVE the fireworks especially!!!

    I'm so glad to be introduced to your blog. I have all sorts of family in Augusta!! Headed there for a wedding at the end of July!

    We've been doing 'human fireworks' for the end of my song and picture book entitled "Red, White and Blue"..... so I'm especially interested in art projects w/fireworks.

    Nice to meet ya!
