Draw a line around the tubes at the mid-point. Then, cut into the cardboard tube beginning at one end and stopping at the line. Cut several parallel lines the same way. Once you’re finished, bend the strips outward, so that your cardboard tube looks somewhat like a flower.
*Tips for Parents: Older kids can do the cutting themselves—it’s great for their fine motor skills. Practice cutting thin strips and thicker strips. Cut several tubes, all with different-sized strips.
Step 2 – Stamp
*Tips for Parents: If kids have seen fireworks before, have them help you make firework noises as they do the stamping. This is a fun activity to do along to music. Stamp along with the beat!
