Glitter Fireworks

This Fourth of July art project is nothing new. I'm sure it's been done many times over. But since we made these today, I am sharing them with you. Glitter fireworks:
You need black paper, glue, and lots of glitter. Glitter glue would also work, although it wouldn't be nearly as messy, and therefore not as much fun! First the kids make a firework with glue, then they sprinkle pour glitter on top of the glue. Any excess glitter is then dumped onto a plate. Then the kids can repeat this process until their paper is filled.

So pretty! So sparkly!
So messy! You will be finding glitter around your room for months. But it's oh so worth it. The kids love using glitter!
