CIY Staff Tips:


Step 1

Take the paper towel roll and carefully cut it in half.

Step 2

Carefully cut the bottom half of each cardboard tube into thin strips all the way around the tube. Fan out the cut strips.

Step 3

Pour out 3 colours of Crayola Washable Kids’ Paint onto 3 small paper plates. Dip the fanned cardboard tube into one of the paint colours and gently stamp the paint onto a sheet of black cardstock twice, creating two separate firework explosions.

Step 4

Repeat the previous step to stamp the other colours onto the paper. Experiment with overlapping colours for interesting effects!

Step 5

Once dry, cut out the two firework explosions to the same size.

Step 6

Apply Crayola School Glue to the back of each piece of cardstock and place string for hanging the decoration on the back of one piece of the cardstock.

Step 7

Sandwich the string between the two pieces of cardstock, with a colourful firework explosion displayed on each side.

Step 8

Once dry you are ready to hang them at your Canada Day celebration!
