What really sets this Glitter Fireworks Craft apart is the patriotic star confetti. It’s just a fun touch, and perfect for any Memorial Day or 4th of July celebrations.
Who doesn’t love fireworks? I know I still do. The real question, though, is who loves to play with glitter? Well, kids do. The mom in me doesn’t really deal with glitter all that much. When it comes to fireworks, however, they just scream for glitter. This glitter craft is so easy and is sure to keep the kids busy for a while spreading glitter in a fireworks pattern. You may not even mind the bit of mess, which really isn’t all that bad if you prepare for it.

To make this Glitter Fireworks Craft you will need fine silver glitter, confetti stars, black cardstock, and school glue. To contain the glitter better, make sure to also use a tray. It makes dusting off the excess so much easier.
- Fine silver glitter
- Red, white, and blue confetti stars
- Black cardstock
- School glue
Using glue, draw fireworks on the cardstock.
You can choose how many fireworks you’d like to draw on the page. Make your fireworks in whatever pattern you’d like. Perfect for littler kids!
Sprinkle the silver glitter onto the glue and paper.
Add the confetti stars.
Pick up the paper and move from side to side to make sure all glue is covered with glitter and stars. Empty excess glitter that does not stick to the glue into the tray. Allow to dry completely.
