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.
