Celebrate by making these fun and fab indoor fireworks. They’re so quick and easy to make using paper rolls, paints and pipe cleaners.
A great bonfire night firework craft to keep the kids busy while they wait for the real fireworks to light up the night sky.
Time: 10 minutes
Age: Little kids to Big kids
Difficulty: Easy peasy
You will need:
- Cardboard paper rolls
- Pipe cleaners – colourful or metallic
- Paints – we recommend acrylic paints
- Paint brush
- Sparkly stickers/gems
- Glue gun or very strong glue
Step 1: Paint the cardboard tubes
Paint your toilet roll tubes with black, gold or silver paint. We find that acrylic paints work best as they provide a good thick layer.
You might want to decorate them too with glitter, stickers or sparkly gems. We added shiny stars to ours.
Step 2: Bend your pipe cleaners
Take some metallic or brightly coloured pipe cleaners and bend them into shapes.
You might like to bend spirals or zigzags.
Step 3: Assemble your fireworks
Using a glue gun (or very strong glue) stick your pipe cleaners inside the top of your tube.
Stick in as many as you want, until you are happy with how your firework looks.
Step 4: Add some extra sparkle
You can stick shiny sequins or stickers to the ends of your pipe cleaners to add extra pizazz.
