3D Firework Art


It's that time of year again-  when booms echo and flashes of color fill the night sky.

I knew it had arrived when the firework ads came tucked inside the local paper.  These innocent pieces of advertisement are eye candy for the little pyros I call children. Coupons, BOGO's, and more laying there for the children to ogle.  They sit and meticuosly plan how they are going to spend their pennies and saved money.  The boys know every price from memory and know exactly which tent houses the cheapest sparklers or artillery shells.

Okay, I know I should be thankful they are using their minds to calculate and read... 

However, this momma has a short fuse and doesn't want to imagine the final cost of these "so-called" bargains.  Years ago, the food program my daycare uses provided a fun craft in their monthly newsletter.  This is one of the most fun Fourth of July crafts I have stumbled upon.  It keeps the pyros in the family happy and allows me one hour where I don't have to hear pleas to buy more parachutes.

To make 3D Firework Art you will need a few items.  Although, due to dire craft supply shortage, we had to get creative by making an alternative to glitter using salt.  Get creative and let your little ones create their ideal firework display minus the booms and high costs.

Here is what you will need:
  • black construction paper
  • glue
  • glitter or glitter glue (we used homemade salt glitter-  you can find out how to make it here)
  • squares of tinfoil or colored pieces of tissue paper
  • pencil

Here is how you make 3D fireworks:
  • On your black paper, use glue to draw shoots and explosions in the night sky.
  • Sprinkle glitter over the glue and shake off the excess.

  • Now it's time to add your 3D stars and blooms.  Take your pencil and place the square of paper around the eraser.  Pinch around the end and press it onto a dab of glue.  Carefully, remove the pencil and VOILA! 



  • Let the paper dry and display.

How do you like to celebrate the Fourth?  This is what I probably will face:
