Fireworks Art

Total Time Needed: 30 Minutes or less

Have a blast this Fourth of July with these explosive designs: bursts of paint that resemble fireworks in the sky.


  • Acrylic paint
  • Drinking straw
  • Paintbrush
  • Paper (or card stock)
  • Water


  1. For each color, in a paper cup, dilute some acrylic paint with water to a runny consistency.
  2. Using a paintbrush, drip a few drops of paint onto a piece of paper or card stock (be sure to rinse the brush between colors), then hold a drinking straw directly over each puddle of paint and blow gently to create a spectacular starburst effect.
