The perfect easy 4th of July activity for kids.
Looking for an easy fourth of July craft for kids? This is for you!
Is their really any holiday better than the 4th of July???? Sunshine. BBQS. Parades. Family. Friends. Fireworks. I love this holiday. And I love celebrating it with my three kiddos. We always make a fourth of July craft or two in the week before Independence Day. This Fireworks Stamping is one of our favorites! It’s so easy, cheap and fun!
A lot of our crafts revolve around toilet paper tubes….because you really can’t get any cheaper than toilet paper tubes, right?!?!

First, gather your supplies. Fortunately you don’t need very many items! Yay!
- Three toilet paper tubes (or more if you prefer)
- Acrylic Paint (I chose red, white and blue…because I’m original like that…..)
- Construction paper (any color, but I recommend white or black)
Prepping Your Easy Fourth of July Craft
Now that you have your supplies, it’s time to do a little prep work.
First, you will need to cut thin strips all along the bottom of each toilet paper tube. Cut the strips about half way up the tube.
Once your strips are cut, fan them out so that the bottom of the tube is flat.
Now for the FUN part!! The fireworks stamping part!
All you have to do is lay your construction paper on the table and pour some paint onto a paper plate.
Next, dip each toilet paper tube (the fanned out part) into the paint and then stamp it onto your paper. The stamp will make a firework design. Try to mix it up using different colored paint and paper.
Add Some Bling
Once your paper is full of fireworks, you can sprinkle some glitter on top of the paint to give it a little extra sparkle. This is totally optionally, but it does make the fireworks stand out a little more.
All Done! Hang your fireworks craft up for the world to see!
Fourth of July Fun
I hope you have so much fun making this easy fourth of July craft with your kids. This is such a great craft for all ages!
