The 4th of July is just around the corner, so I figured we'd do a little Independence Day inspired art project.

We simply dipped a porcupine ball in paint and rolled it around a bit...

...then stamped it on black construction paper to make fireworks.  

While the paint was still wet, we added some glitter to make it sparkle. (I'm sure glitter paint would work great too!)

We stuck with red, white, and blue, but I think it would be fun to mix colors and see the surprising combinations that explode across the page!


  1. This is such a fun idea! I can't wait until Max gets chance to see some fireworks, I'll definitely follow up with this activity afterwards :)

  2. I love this! Just saw this on Pinterest and I'm going to add it to my 4th of July activities post for kids at I'll link back to your site! Thanks for sharing!! Love your blog.
