If you have a ‘flare’ for arts and crafts, you will love this firework picture for you to make at home with your family.
This activity develops your child’s imagination and stimulates their incredible senses, by using different materials to create bright, sparkling 3D effects.
This fun creative activity helps to develop your child’s fine motor skills, understanding of their world and helps with their colour recognition.
For your 3D picture you will need:
- Foam clay
- Black A4 card
- Rocket door hanger
- Photo of your child
With the glue, begin creating the shapes of your fireworks on your black A4 card.
Tip: Create different sizes, and shapes like spirals to make your fi
reworks stand out.
Begin to glitter on top of the glue.
Pour the excess glitter off into the glitter jar.
Whilst this is drying, cut out your pictures and place in the whole of the rocket frame.
With the foam clay, begin to mould onto the rocket to create a 3D effect.
When both the glue and the clay is dry, stick the rocket carefully to the black card.
