I love fireworks but I know not every child loves to hear them. For years we never went because of the noise bothering one of my girls. But firework art has always been fun to do!
Today’s art is super easy to make oil pastel fireworks that you can do just about anywhere.
Plus I know that I always get tons of requests for simple and easy crafts for different ages.
The oil pastel fireworks is a great craft that takes just a few minutes to do that can make some great art for kids.
You could even do this activity while waiting for fireworks!
What you need for this Oil Pastel Firework Craft
How to make the Oil Pastel Fireworks
First, we start off by making our fireworks in pencil on the black construction paper. Yes, it can be hard to see, but it gives kids an idea of what they want to do with their fireworks.
If you have younger kids you could draw the fireworks for them first. It gives them a great fine motor activity tracing the lines.
Then we trace the pencil with the oil pastels. We are using neon colors because they are very bright.
After you have traced the lines with oil pastels you take a finger trace over the line. You can put a little pressure while doing this. It smooths out the lines and makes it blends the lines on the paper.
Then you repeat the step above over and over. Super simple and easy to do!
If you want to do this on the go grab a clipboard to put the paper on and you are all set!
