Bonfire Night Crafting

With Bonfire Night fast approaching, I thought it’d be fun to get crafty with Little Man and create some fireworks inspired art.

At just turned 3, anything that involves glue and glitter has my son very excited! It’s also a fun way to craft, as I can pop the glue in the areas he directs which allows us to make some sort of recognisable scene. Ish.

So we got going, and all we needed for this one was black paper, shredded orange paper, glitter, sequins and glue…

Bonfire Night Crafting

First up, Little Man decided where to place his bonfire, popping plenty of paper on top of the glue. Once he was happy that there was enough fire there, he moved onto directing his fireworks display. The fireworks were all created using  glitter and sequins. My son was very clear on the colours that he wanted where and the designs he needed! It was great to see him so focused on what he was doing.

  1. Lovely effective picture with different textures. It looks like he had lots of fun doing it and concentrated hard. I am still like your son – love a bit of gliitter! Thanks for sharing #LetKidsBeKids

  2. This looks so cool!!!! What a creative idea. I love the use of tissue paper for the fire and the sparkly sequins. I always see chalk firework pictures but never ones like this. I can’t wait for bonfire night. A perfect excuse to head outdoors and wrap up all cosy. xx #letkidsbekids

  3. Great craft and I bet it can be adapted for christmas too! Thank you so much for linking with the #pinitparty and don’t forget to check out if you are one of the featured posts next week! Have a great weekend!

  4. What a brilliant picture! That’s a great idea too – my two really don’t enjoy crafting too much but I think I’ll make them do this one. It’s bound to turn into fun at some point right? 🙂
