Firework Crafts

One of our families favorite summer activities is watching the foruth of july fireworks! There is just nothing like the big, colorful lights decorating the black night sky with the big BOOMS to excite and delight children (and parents). To prepare for the show, I like to remind kids what fireworks are, the lights, and mostly – the noise that comes with this favorite 4th of July activity. We’ve made a lot of firework activities over the years. But this year, I decided to make different firework crafts with my toddlers, preschoolers, kindergartners, grade 1, grade 2, and grade 3 students. We decided to use a spinner to make this 4th of July craft! This technique is so simple and yet makes such beautiful 4th of july kids crafts. So grab the kids to make one of the prettiest, most creative patriotic crafts for kids you’ve ever seen.

All you need to make this firework arts and craft project are a few simple materials you probabaly already have on hand:

  • white paper
  • fidget spinner

4th of July Craft

Start by covering your surface or better yet, take the project outside to make sure in all the spinning fun you don’t decorate a surface you didn’t intend to decorate =) Now set a fidget spinner (you don’t mind to get painted) on top of a white piece of paper.

HINT: Depending on the amount of paint and crazyness of your spinner, you may want to set out several pieces of paper or even several fidget spinners of different sizes to create a truly beautiful and unique project.

Patriotic Crafts for Kids

Squirt or blob paint on each arm of the fidget spinner. As we were using this patriotic craft for the 4th of July we used red, white and blue on each of the sides of the spinner, but use whatever color (s) you prefer as fireworks do come in all colors!

Put your thumb onto the middle so the spinner doesn’t accidently take flight and create fireworks in the air. Now spin your spinner and watch the paint flick off in all different directions.

The paint will overlap and go different distances depending on the speed at which you are spinning it and depending on how much paint you added. Feel free to add additional paint, or a new color and keep spinning.
