Firework night painting idea


Thfirework blow paintingis is one of those activities where the process of the painting is better than the result! I took the photo while the painting was wet. When the paints dried, the colours faded quite a bit. Still, the children really enjoyed it (and a fair bit of dribble ended up on their final masterpieces!)

What you need:

  • black paper
  • ready mix paints in bright firework colours
  • drinking straws
  • spoons

How to paint your picture:

You need to experiment with the paints. If they are good quality, thick paints, you may need to add some water- not too much, or the colours will be too weak. We spooned the paint onto the picture, then blew down the straw to make the paints run.
