Kick off the holiday weekend with this festive pom pom fireworks painting activity!  All you need is a small amount of red and blue paint, clothespins, pom poms, and a sheet of paper to use as your canvas.

 

To prepare the activity, simply squeeze a few drops of each paint color onto a paper plate and give each pom pom a light ‘fluff’ (this will help give more of the fireworks effect).

 

 

Now you’re ready for play!  Let your little one practice their fine motor skills by taking a clothespin and picking up a pom pom with it.

 

 

Next, have them dip the pom pom into a paint color and lightly dab it onto the paper.

 

 

Repeat until they have filled the paper with a beautiful fireworks display.

 

 

We hope that everyone has a safe and happy fourth of July!
