New Years Eve is just around the corner, and we’ll be taking the kids to see the fireworks over Sydney Harbour for the first time. They are super excited! To prepare us for the visual onslaught, I thought we could do a little fireworks painting at home beforehand.
I set up this simple invitation to paint with dark construction paper, pre-cut toilet paper roll fireworks stamps, paints (white, yellow, red, gold and silver glitter), and a ‘spare’ toilet paper roll and scissors. Then I waited to see who would take the bait….
My four and a half year old daughter JJ saw it first.
After a minute she spied the ‘spare’ toilet paper roll, and started to cut her own stamper (just as I’d hoped). Her cutting skills have really improved lately.
Two and a quarter year old Bee then joined in as well. JJ showed Bee what to do. (They play so well together at the moment, that I almost don’t want to say it out loud in case I jinx myself).
I think they turned out rather well!
You do so many things with TP rolls. Here are some of our other ideas:
And I even have a whole Pinterest board dedicated to them!
