Create your own fireworks picture by using dark construction paper, glue, and different colors of glitter. These fireworks pictures are great decorations for New Year, Chinese New Year, or Independence Day. The Chinese invented fireworks thousands of years ago.
- Black or very dark construction paper
- White glue
- Old newspapers
- Optional – A straw
Work on old newspapers. Spread glue on the paper in geometric shapes. If the glue is soft enough, you can put a small blob of glue on the paper, and then blow some air through a straw to spread it into interesting shapes. You can experiment with the consistency of the glue and the angle of the straw.
Sprinkle glitter onto the glue. Slide the excess glitter off your picture and back into the glitter container.
Optional: Repeat the glue and glitter process with different colors of glitter. Let the glue dry.
