Frugal Ideas for the Fourth of July

Firework Art

What You'll Need:
Black Construction paper
Tempera paints
Paper towels
Use black construction paper and make fireworks using scouring pads that you use to wash your pots and pans. Mix tempera paint in a tray and add paper towels to make a stamp pad. The paper towel should be wet, but not soaking. Touch the scouring pad to the paper towel and press on paper. Gold tempera really looks spectacular. Use white and red as well, and add glitter to the paint. It is a great effect on the black paper.

Using a black piece of construction paper, straws, and various colored paint. Allow the children to drop a small amount of paint onto paper and gently blow through the straw for fireworks in the sky effects.
