For this fun 4th of July craft, you’ll need just 4 simple supplies that you might already have at home. We’ll be bringing our firework art to life using red and blue acrylic paint, bendy drinking straws, white printer paper, and scotch tape. Note that Pipe cleaners can also be used in place of plastic straws.

My daughter loved this easy firework art idea so much that we ended up painting fireworks using acrylic paint on a plain cotton canvas bag. It turned out to be a cute and colorful way to embellish a bag that she can use for summer camp or a trip to the library!
You can also have your kids create their own firework art on white T-shirts if they want something festive to wear for the 4th of July!
