Painting Fireworks with Kids


What better time to paint fireworks than the weeks leading up to the Fourth of July?

In this humorous video, I show you how to paint fireworks on a poster board by throwing a pronged ball dunked in paint straight at the poster. Does that sound like fun? Painting fireworks with kids has never been so easy!

You will need black poster board, kid paint, and a pronged ball. You might also want some old newspaper to place under your project.


Of course, my kids tried painting fireworks another way, which turned out to be disastrous. Take a look at our failed artwork as well as our successful painting of fireworks.
