Fourth of July Crafts for Kids


Glitterworks

Create some fireworks of your own with "Glitterworks."
Create some fireworks of your own with "Glitterworks."

This Fourth of July, create your own "Glitterworks" -- fireworks that you make with glue and glitter. Capture the feel of nation's celebration when you create a festive work of art.

What You'll Need:

Newspaper

Black construction paper

Pencil

Glue

Glitter

Cover your work surface with newspaper -- glitter can be kind of messy.

Be creative -- try to draw your favorite fireworks display using black construction paper and a pencil. The pencil marks will show only as shiny imprints.

Trace your explosion with a thin line of glue. Sprinkle glitter on the glue and let it dry for about five minutes.

Then, carefully shake the excess glitter off the paper and into the glitter container to recycle it.

Now you have a Glitterworks picture you can be proud of.

See the next page for a shirt that shows off the red, white and blue!
