Failed Attempt at Fireworks

Filed in July 4th

We are taking a little break from our space theme to do some July 4th related activities.  So today we tried to make some fireworks.  We did a fireworks project last year using paint and it didn’t work because it was too thick.  So this year I tried using food coloring- but that didn’t work either.

We used bowls, paper, straw, food coloring and a box.

I put little spots of food coloring on the paper and had Hailey blow into the straw to spread it around.  It was supposed to look like fireworks but as you can see it didn’t really work.  As a side note- if you try this- I poked 2 little holes near the top of the straw so that she couldn’t suck up the liquid.

Come back tomorrow to see our fireworks that actually turned out!  And if you know how to make this idea work- please advise!!

    When I do this project I use very thin tempura paint but the younger kids have trouble blowing the paint around. does work for the older kids though.
