Ideas For Bonfire Night Crafts

We’ve asked some lovely parents for their simple Bonfire Night crafts and ideas that you can do with your kids, read on for some easy inspiration . . .

Tip One – get your hands on some black paper or black card.

With the help of an enthusiastic little person, we decorated this rocket. Depending on the age of your child, you might need to cut out the shape of the rocket.

Then they get to decorate it with fluorescent paint using brushes, fingers or another painting implement of their choice.

If you prefer to keep the mess to a minimum, mum Liz Tamplin suggests drawing fireworks on black paper or card using chalk.

Tip Two – be ready to try some experimental painting

There are lots of ideas around for firework painting. Take a look at this video from craft blogger School Runs and Shopping Trolleys it shows you how to try Firework Splatter Painting.

You could also try firework painting using straws just like this.
