Fireworks painting can get messy (splat!), so work outside if you can. If you’re indoors, lay 2 yards of oilcloth, some towels, or a splat mat beneath your workspace to make cleanup easy.
Creativity is the watchword here, but we offer three methods your kids might want to try. Or use all three methods on one big sheet of paper to create a giant fireworks scene, like the finale on the Fourth of July. Allow your creations to dry flat overnight. Aren’t the rainbow fireworks beautiful?
What You’ll Need
- Watercolor paper, available in pads or large sheets wherever art supplies are sold
- Empty muffin tin or several small bowls
- Liquid watercolors or diluted food coloring in six colors
- Eyedroppers, one for each paint color
- Empty squeeze bottle
What You'll Do
For all methods, squeeze six colors of liquid watercolors or diluted food coloring into a muffin tin or small bowls.
