Paper Tube Fireworks Art Project for Kids

Sharing is caring!

This paper tube Fireworks Art Project for Kids is entirely child-led and with Bonfire Night just a few weeks away followed by New Years Celebrations, kids will love creating their own fireworks display using this simple technique that’s been used within preschools for years.

Using recycled materials as a fireworks stamp and newspaper clippings to add an urban/country landscape or famous landmark, the paintings will be transformed into a complete fireworks scene that will resemble the New Years celebrations from around the world. It could be personalized to your child’s location by using a photo of your home, town or perhaps the newspaper could be substituted with a hand-drawn image.

However you choose to present this activity, I’m sure the Arty Crafty Kids will have their own ideas and will have a blast cutting, sticking, painting and stamping!
