Yay for July 4th where we get to use Red, White, and Blue paint in everything! And this crafty art project is no exception. I think all the Freedom holidays like Memorial Day, 4th of July, Veterans Day and Presidents day are covered in ways to create fireworks and Phoenyx and Charlotte both love using different kitchen utensils to bring the fun!
For this craft project, you can either use white paper (which I prefer) or black paper to bring out more of the white paint or just keep creating and do both!
Dish Brush Firework Art for Kids
- red, blue and white finger paint
- a ROUND kitchen scrub brush (with or without the handle is fine)
- regular paintbrush
We just used a REGULAR paint brush to paint our design onto the bristles FIRST. You could dip the kitchen brush, but then it mixes the colors and can come out much more solid or purple and this way you get a bit of every color. Once you have painted the bristles all the way around, you push down on the paper with your dish brush. If you turn it into circles it will smear the colors into a circle, so just pick up and push down, pick up and push down.
