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.
