Firework Stamps

Celebrate Independence Day by recycling paper towel rolls and turning them into a fun craft for the kiddos! Here is what you will need for these simple stamps…

  • Paper Towel Tube
  • Scissors
  • Paintbrush
  • Red & Blue Paint
  • White Paper
  • Glitter (optional)

Start by using your scissors to cut the paper towel tube in half.

Now that you have two pieces, snip small incisions about an inch deep around the top of each tube. Use your fingers to gently fold out the ends until the end of the tube resembles a sun. Who doesn’t love sunshine?!

Once you have finished with both paper towel tubes, have your tiny human take the paintbrush and paint the flaired ends. Paint one tube red and the other tube blue. 

You are now ready to press the flaired ends of the tubes down and begin stamping fireworks!!!! Sprinkle glitter over wet paint to really jazz up those beautiful fireworks! 

Happy Fourth Everyone!!!
