My friend needed firework crafts for her preschool class, and she was torn between a sparkler firework craft and paper fireworks crafts.
However, this glow-in-the-dark firework craft won her over.
Here are the materials need to make your DIY firework craft.
- Toilet Paper Rolls
- Yellow and Blue construction paper
- Ribbon (patriotic-themed)
- Glow-in-the-dark Sticks
- Red Tissue Paper
- Candy, Toys, and Prizes
How to Make DIY Firework Craft
Prepare the craft by using a recycled toilet paper roll.
First, I used an empty roll and covered it in construction paper. I cut a hole in the toilet paper roll for a window. This will help the glow stick to help the firework glow brighter.
I used blue construction paper for the bottom of the tube and used yellow construction paper to make the lid.
Second, I glued a patriotic-themed ribbon for the bottom of the firework.
After that, I placed the candy into the firework.
Tip: Suppose you are getting ready to use these for a DIY firework hunt at night. I recommend adding glow sticks. I personally broke open my glow sticks right before my kids started the scavenger hunt.
After the firewrok is filled with candy or prizes. Insert a glowing glow stick. After that the top will need to be sealed with either glue or tape.
Lastly, I added red tissue paper for the bottom to represent fire. This helped the overall look more like a firework rocket. I think it turned out pretty cool. What do you think? It shines really bright.
Fourth of July Scavenger Hunt
We enjoy participating in an independence day scavenger hunt and a new year’s eve scavenger hunt. This reminds me of both, with a summer twist to it.
When making a scavenger hunt with these DIY fireworks, fill them up with goodies and place them around the yard.
You could hide them indoors or outdoors. If you hide them outside, think about placing them in trickier areas for older children or teens, but younger kids will need easier places to find them.
Suppose you want to use these for a new year’s eve scavenger hunt for adults. Easily place new year’s eve scavenger hunt clues in them for added fun.
