Inside: This 4th of July craft is all about stamping fireworks onto paper. Simply cut a sponge into shapes that resemble fireworks and invite your children to have fun stamping!
This week is Red, White, and Blue Camp and my daughter, Rachel, put together this fun idea.
So, when she cut kitchen sponges into sparkler shapes, the children couldn’t wait to get started.
Such an easy way to make fireworks on paper!
Quick 4th of July Craft for Toddlers and Preschoolers
What you will need:
Tempera paint, blue and red
Setting up this activity:
Cut shapes into your sponges so they look like fireworks shapes.
Pour red, white, and blue paint into separate containers and add a sponge in each one.
Place paper, paint, and sponges on a table and invite your children to use their hands to transfer the sponges to the paper, stamping paint onto them.
Dip the sponge into the paint and then onto the paper.
This 4th of July craft is great for working those fine motor skills. See how the hand has to hold the sponge while moving it?
So simple and yet so fun!
