Fireworks night is just around the corner. I’m aware it can divide opinion but we love Guy Fawkes night. Getting all wrapped up and watching the whizz bangs, whilst writing our names with sparklers. The kids have been learning about the gun powder plot at school so it’s been a great excuse to look at Fireworks and Bonfire Night Crafts ahead of this traditional British celebration. This is a round up post of some of the best Fireworks and Bonfire Night Crafts, which will hopefully provide you with some inspiration for activities to do with your littlies this weekend.
Pin Fireworks and Bonfire Night Crafts
When they do explode in the sky, their colourful sparkley nature means they are great to recreate in kids craft projects using a variety of mediums.
You can also create firework pictures using glue and other media. Like this fab Confetti and Glue Fireworks Craft by Preschool Toolkit. I love the fact that they made their own confetti using a hole punch.
We simply used glue and glitter to make the fireworks in our Bonfire Night Collage.
You can also just use paint to make some great firework pictures. I love this Firework Splatter Painting by It’s a Tink Thing. A great messy play activity for kids of all ages to enjoy.
Or how about using other objects to spread the paint? There are some great ideas out there using things like cut up toilet rolls or straws, or this one using marbles to make firework paintings by Daisies and Pie, a great sensory activity for really little ones.
You can even take it one step further and have a go at this Film Canister Rocket Firework Painting by The Science Kiddo, which is not only a fun fireworks craft and activity, but a great little STEM project too!
It’s not just fireworks that give us inspiration for art and craft projects. Even the lowly bonfire can be a great source of inspiration.
To make our Bonfire Night Collage, we resorted to using natural materials, and I think the result is quite effective!
Hopefully this post has given you lots of ideas and inspiration for Fireworks and Bonfire Night crafts and activities to do with the kids to celebrate this great British tradition, whatever your view of fireworks is. If you need more inspiration then check out and follow our Pinterest board.
