Play Dough Mandalas
The essential ingredient for any firework craft is glitter, right? For the simplest Bonfire Night craft idea take some black paper, add glue and glitter and invite your children to create their own firework display. We used chalk to draw in our people, adding an extra medium for the kids to try out. You could give each child their own piece of paper, or go big and have each child contribute a few fireworks to one huge picture.

With both Bonfire Night and Diwali being celebrated this week, we thought we’d get the glitter out to make a firework painting.
1. Use some black paper to be your sky.
2. Put a small blob of paint on your sky and blow it out into a firework shape using a drinking straw. Make sure you use runny paint, make sure your blow rather than suck, and make sure you keep your hair out of the way! You can make great explosion shapes.
3. While the paint is still wet, sprinkle on some glitter to give your fireworks some extra pizzazz!
4. Leave your pictures to dry, shake off any excess glitter and display your fireworks on the wall.
