We had lots of fun painting fireworks with straws! I’ve been wanting to try this technique since first seeing these cute monsters from Raising Sparks. It was definitely a hit with the boys, so I think we’ll be doing it again!
Here’s what you’ll need: Glitter glue, card stock, aluminum foil, a permanent marker, and a straw (not pictured).
1. Cover a piece of card stock with aluminum foil. Color the entire paper with a black permanent marker.
Optional: You can use black construction paper, it just won’t be as vibrant as the colored aluminum foil.
2. Add your glitter glue. We found it was best to make a starburst shape. Then use the straw to blow the paint to look like fireworks!
3. Add more colors to make a beautiful fireworks display!
