Paper Fireworks


  • Paper Fireworks Free Printable
  • Colors/Scissors/Tape
  • Streamers (I used a small strip of Oly-Fun)
  • Straw

Step One. Print out the Paper Fireworks Free Printable on regular printer paper. I made most of the designs somewhat generic just in case you want to make these all Summer long. Also included a blank one just in case any of your kids really want to customize it!

All that’s left to do is slip the paper firecracker over a straw and blow! The paper will fly through the air to the sounds of glee from your kids! My boys had so much fun with these that they wanted to make a few custom ones to look like rockets. They were entertained for at least half an hour (which is a lifetime when it comes to little kids!) This would be a great project for a bored afternoon, rainy day inside, or even at a 4th of July party to entertain the kids. Hope you all enjoy!
