My kids love to paint, especially my youngest. I love that he likes to be creative and sometimes get messy too. Making crafts and doing art can get messy. As a Mom, I’ve learned to live with it and always have baby wipes or something to clean up messy hands!
It’s really fun to decorate for patriotic holidays so we thought making fireworks would be a hit and it sure was. Toilet paper roll crafts are all the rage because they are easy and so much fun. Painting with them is a great idea! No brushes needed- we used the toilet paper roll as our brush!
Toilet Paper Roll Fireworks
To make these toilet paper roll fireworks all you will need are some washable paints (red and blue!) and 1-2 empty toilet paper rolls.
Start by cutting one side of the toilet roll small slits all the way around. Add some paint to a surface like an old box or paper plate. Dip in your toilet roll (the side you cut).
Lightly press the painted roll on top of your cardstock paper. You might have to do this a few times. I had to stress to my youngest about doing it lightly!
We did red and blue to make it really patriotic!
Next we added glitter. This is where it went a little overboard and glitter went everywhere. GLITTER. Ugh. At least we were outside. Let your product fully dry and then place a red or blue piece of construction paper behind to make it really stand out.
This would be a really fun idea for preschool too! I taught preschool for one year and learned so much!
