Toilet Paper Roll Firecracker Craft for Kids

The 4th of July is coming up and this is a cheap craft for the kids to make! I always tell parents to save their empty toilet paper rolls for a rainy day :)


Materials Need:

  • 2 toilet paper rolls
  • scissors
  • glue
  • glitter/sequins
  • red paint
  • pipe cleaner


Start by painting an empty toilet paper roll red and let dry. After that take an extra TP roll and cut it open. Trace the bottom of the other roll onto it and cut it out (this will be the top of the firecracker).


Paint the circles red and poke a pipe cleaner through it. Bend them so they are kind of curvy.


Put sequins, glitter, or whatever else you want on the firecracker to finish it!
