Here's what you'll need
• Q Tips• Water• Small container• Food coloring• Paper plate • Black construction paper• Glue
Here's how you make them...
1. Cut your Q Tips in various sizes. You can actually break them off pretty easily with your hands. 2. Now you will need to color you Q Tips. Put some water in a small container and add food coloring (6-8 drops is good). Dip your swabs in to the colored water and place on a paper plate. Repeat for as many colors of fireworks as you'd like.
3. If you are not doing this craft right away, or have time to prepare ahead of time, you can leave your swabs out to dry overnight. If you need them to be dry quickly you can put them in the microwave, on high for 5-6 minutes, or until they are dry. 4. On a piece of black paper glue your Q Tips in a circular pattern. For younger children it will be easier if you draw a black dot on the paper and instruct them to glue their swabs all pointing to the dot in the middle.
Make as many different fireworks as you can, make them all different colors, sizes and patterns!
Keep in mind that the more food coloring you add the more vibrant your swabs will be!
