If you have extra pipe cleaners laying around, consider making some fireworks with your kiddos! It's pretty simple to make and it looks cool afterwards. It's a great art project to celebrate the 4th of July or Memorial Day!
You will need pipe cleaners, paint, glitter, and a piece of black paper.
How to make a pipe cleaner firework stamp:
1. Start with 3-4 straight pipe cleaners
2. Bend them in half.
3. Twist the ends until about half way down.
4. Spread out the bottom pieces.
Have the kids dip the pipe cleaners in paint and stamp it on the piece of paper. We had to press each pipe cleaner against the paper because it's not sturdy enough (it bent a bit). Finish off the craft by sprinkling silver glitter on top!
Thanks to Juggling With Kids for this fantastic idea!
