Bonfire night has come around again, here are some fun craft ideas to do with the children...
Crayon Fireworks: take a sheet of paper and completely cover it in coloured wax crayon then take a black crayon and colour over the whole sheet again. Take a coin and scrape away the black crayon and you will see the bright colours underneath showing through. Scrape out streams of lights in the shape of exploding rockets!
Chalk Fireworks: take a sheet of black paper and draw firework explosions in bright chalks. Use your finger to smear some of the chalk lines to create a smoky effect.
Glitter Fireworks: draw spidery lines on using a gluestick on a sheet of black paper. Pour glitter on and pour off surplus glitter. Then draw more lines and use a different glitter colour. Build up a sky full of lots of different coloured fireworks.
Make a Rocket: Take a roll from kitchen tissue; make a cone for one end and tape it to the top. Take a length of bamboo cane or a straight stick and tape it from the bottom inside of the tube. Paint the whole rocket a red colour or cover it in crepe paper, and when dry, paint on fun decorations. Cut strips of streamers from red and yellow crepe paper and glue these to the inside bottom of the tube too to create a trailing flame effect.
Make a Catherine Wheel: Cut out a round circle of paper and decorate it with a spiral pattern using glitter and bright crayons. Stick it to a straw and wave it about.
Firework Biscuits: Buy a packet of gingerbread biscuits (or rich tea biscuits if your children find ginger ones too hard to crunch into!) and a set of tubes of writing icing. Make firework explosion patterns with the bright icing colours and enjoy the biscuits soon after!
Look out for other bright materials to make fun firework pictures from - look for fluorescent papers, pens and paints, bright stars and sequins to stick onto paper, coloured pipe cleaners, glitters and even glow in the dark paints!
