Here is a fun Fourth of July project that's easy enough for the little ones. I bought some neon paint at Michaels and brought in my Martha Stewart crystal glitter.
I put small blobs of paint on black construction paper and the kids used a Q-tip to spread the paint from the center of the blob outward.
They could make it look like a starburst or curve the lines a bit to make it look more like a firework. This was much easier than when the kids made them with a glue bottle. They have more control with the Q-tip.
As pretty as they are just like that, they needed a little sparkle. I didn't want to cover up the neon colors so we sprinkled on some clear glitter.
Once dry, I hung them in the hallway.
If you don't have neon paint, you could use glue and spread it with a Q-tip. Then just sprinkle colored glitter on top! Have a wonderful and safe Independence Day!
