The 5 best firework craft ideas for kids!

The 5 best firework craft ideas and activities for kids: nature collage, picture spinning, pasta, cotton bud painting and fizzy fireworks!

Remember, remember the 5th of November!  It’s almost bonfire night here in the UK (Guy Fawkes night strictly speaking) and in keeping with this, I’m sharing a round up of my favourite firework craft ideas.  Of course these would also make great 4th of July craft ideas for kids!

  1. Firework painting using cotton buds (AKA Q tips)
    I love this simple idea from Inner Child Fun – all you need is paint, paper and cotton buds!

  2. Mixed media bonfire collage using real twigs
    Our boys made a bonfire and firework collage with their fabulous childminder this week.  Paint splodging and flicking, plus glitter for the fireworks and tissue-paper flames in a real twig bonfire.

  3. Salad spinner fireworks
    Channel your inner Damien Hirst with scrumdilly-doo’s fabulous salad-spnner firework art!

  4. Fizzing fireworks!
    Who wouldn’t want to have a go at these fizzing fireworks from Toddler Approved (using things that most of us will already have in our kitchen)?

  5. Pasta fireworks
    Another simple, yet gorgeous craft idea for kids from Brimful Curiosities – fireworks made from pasta!  Click the picture below for the full tutorial.

I wish you a safe and happy bonfire night (and if it’s too cold and wet for you to go out, stay in and do some firework crafts instead)!

    These are great, I love the first one with cotton buds. It’s one of those really simple things which I’d just never have thought of! x

      Absolutely! The simple ideas are the often the best 🙂 And I think we all have paper, paint and cotton buds at home already, so it’s pretty much a free craft…

    I had not try cotton buds for painting. I should get some for my kids to paint! Look great!

      I know, right Eileen? No washing brushes afterwards either – just chuck them out! 😉
