Are you looking for fun and unique activities for your 4th of July party? Wikki Stix can help make the celebration memorable for kids with fun firework paintings, star rubbings, and flag treat bags!
PATRIOTIC FIREWORK PAINTINGS
Materials needed: Red, White, and Blue Tempera Paint, Paint Trays or Paper Plates (one tray per paint color), Colored or White Paper (1 piece per child/craft), and Wikki Stix (any colors – 5-6 Wikki Stix per child/craft).
Prior to painting: make a Wikki Stix fireworks painting tool. Place 4-5 strands of Wikki Stix together. Bend all of the Wikki Stix strands in half; thread another Wikki Stix (see white strand in the photo below) through the crease and twist to close. Separate the individual strands of Wikki Stix into a sunburst pattern (see photo below).
To make the fireworks paintings: have the children paint one color at a time with the Wikki Stix painting tool. If desired, the children can add silver or gold glitter to the paintings before drying.
The fireworks paintings make great displays for Patriotic holidays!
