This hand print fireworks craft is a fun paper craft to make with your kids to celebrate the 4th of July! Trace their hand print and cut out lots of copies, then glue them down so they overlap. Add a whole bunch of glitter to the outside edge of the hand prints and you have fabulous "handmade" fireworks. Our daughter loved this craft and we hope your kids do too.

What you'll need:

  • Red, white, blue and black construction paper
  • Glue
  • Glitter
  • Scissors
  • Pencil
How to make your hand print fireworks:
  1. Trace your child's hand print. Cut out multiple copies on all of the colors of paper.
  2. Glue the hand prints onto the black construction paper. You want to create a circle of hand prints and have them overlap the whole way around (see the picture provided).
  3. Once the hand prints are glued down, squirt a line of glue all around the outside edge of the hand prints.
  4. Have your child dump glitter on the glue and shake it a bit to coat
    *Tip: if you have younger children, try putting the piece of paper in the lid to a shirt box or something similar. This helps contain the glitter a bit better than just a piece of newspaper.
  5. Dump off the excess glitter.
