Firecracker Craft for Kids

By: Marie LeBaron of Make and Takes

If your kids can’t wait until the 4th to light up a few fireworks, then this Firecracker Craft is the perfect way to celebrate early. Bubble wrap is placed inside, making a great popping noise maker. This is a fun and easy 4th of July craft the kids will go bonkers for.

4th of July Kids Firecrackers


Materials:

  • Bubble wrap - hopefully you have some left over from a package that came to your house.
  • Toilet paper roll - start saving a few of these as they always come in handy for crafting projects.
  • Pipe cleaners - these are also great to have handy.
  • Decorations - paint, markers, paper, stickers, tissue paper, etc…
  • Scissors
  • Glue/Tape/Stapler

Instructions:

  1. First tape both ends of the pipe cleaner to each end of the Firecracker. You could staple the pipe cleaner in place as well. Then twist your pipe cleaner together for more of a fuse look.

  2. Then roll up a 2×3 inch size of bubble wrap. Using a little glue or tape, stick it into your empty toilet paper roll. I just taped mine on the top and the bottom. The tape is going to get covered with your decorations anyway.

  3. For the decorations, you can paint them with red, white, and blue paint. Or glue on paper. Or use markers to make a flag or stars. We even cut a little orange tissue paper and simply stuck them to the tops of the fuse to make it look like it was ready to blow!
