Kids Craft: Straw Fireworks Painting

We are well into summer and sometimes to break up our day, the kids and I do a fun craft or activity. We have made a variety of things this summer and I thought something for the 4th of July would be appropriate this week.

What better thing to make this week than fireworks!



What you need:
bendable straws
tape
paint
paper to paint on - I used cardstock

Simply pull each straw to expand them all the way.
Gather up several and tape together, I did 6 straws in each.
Squirt some paint out on a paper plate.
Dab the straws in the paint and stamp them on the paper. Each straw doesn't transfer the paint all the way on the paper so you may have to push down each straw so the paint gets on the paper.



This made for a simple activity to go with the excitement of the 4th of July. Even my youngest had fun with it. We taped them to our chalkboard to display for the weekend.
