There’s something very magical about Fireworks. I love the look of awe and wonder on my kids faces as they look up at the night sky in anticipation. They love re-creating the colours, patterns and sparkle of fireworks with art too. Here are some easy fireworks art ideas for kids that you can try at home.
Fireworks Art Ideas
Toilet Roll Printed Fireworks
This is a really quick and simple idea. It works best if you pour the paint onto a plate in concentric circles, like a target. Dip the pre-cut toilet roll into the paint, then print onto your paper.
Salt Painted Fireworks
Not only is this a fun and fabulous science experiment, it’s a great fine-motor activity as well! It’s fun to see how far the water colour spreads, as it’s absorbed by the grains of salt.

Salad spinner fireworks! Cut paper to fit a salad spinner and fix with Blu-tack. Squirt some paint in the spinner. Put the lid on and spin! Check out your creation. Try adding a spoonful of washing up liquid to make the colours spread more. Glitter paint works well on black paper for fireworks too.
This is probably my favourite process art activity! I love opening the top of the salad spinner to discover the creation that it’s made!

There’s something quite magical about scratching away the black paint to see the rainbow of colours underneath!

This is great for younger siblings. Use a hot-glue gun to stick the bottle lid on, so that it is safe. Sensory bottles can be very calming to play with. You can find out more about the benefits of sensory play and some ideas in my blog post Benefits of Sensory Play.
If you fancy splat painting fireworks, you could buy the Autumn Squidgydoodle Craft Box ‘Spooky Art’ which also includes some Halloween ideas.
