These firecrackers are a fun and shining way to show Jesus’ love on Independence Day that will lead your kids’ imagination to explode.
You’ll need: toilet paper rolls, various colors of long, metallic paper strips, star stickers, glitter, glue, construction paper, and scissors.
Tell kids to:
- Decorate the toilet paper roll with stickers, glitter, and construction paper.
- Cut out a circle of construction paper big enough to cover the bottom of the toilet paper roll. Glue or staple the circle to your paper roll.
- Fill the paper roll with long, metallic paper that dangles out the open end.
