Instead of painting a picture of a bonfire encourage your child to create a picture with a bit of texture.

Just like in the photo above they can use scrunched up tissue paper to make the flames and twigs from the garden to make the firewood.

We hope you and your family have a lovely bonfire night, please make sure you stay safe!
