Before You Start: Encourage children to express what they see and feel when they view fire works. Provide bowls filled with a variety of different colors including black. Include Colorations® Glitter Paint and Dabba Dabba Dot Painters in your preparation.
Let's Get Started! Step 1. Have children slip a Dabba Dabba Dot Painter on their finger.
Step 2. Encourage the children to make designs on the paper utilizing different colors of Colorations® Glitter Paint.
Step 3. Allow the paint to dry.
Step 4. Place a dab of black BioColor® paint on one side of paper.
Step 5. Scrape the paint across the paper to create the look of a fireworks display.
Step 6. A simple alternative is to provide black construction paper for children to make their "Dabs" with glitter paint directly on the black paper.
Furthermore: Children will experience first hand color resist with this project. Each child will have a different "fireworks show!"
