  • Step 1On dark blue cover paper, use junior PVA glue to create the shape of a firework. Cover the glue design with glitter. Allow to dry.
  • For less glitter wastage, use a scrap piece of paper folded in half to catch the glitter falling off the card stock while decorating. This will make it easy to tip the glitter back into the container ready to reuse!
  • Step 3Repeat step 1 to create desired number of fireworks.
  • Step 4Using a white pastel, create small dots to resemble stars.
  • Step 5Use a sheet black A4 paper to cut out a city skyline. Adult supervision recommended when using scissors.
  • Step 6Draw windows onto the city using pencils, pastels, paint or markers.
  • Step 7Glue the city underneath your fireworks. Allow to dry.
