Fireworks Craft

Today we painted fireworks onto black paper.  I found this really cool water sponge toy tutorial from Makes and Takes on Pinterest and thought wow... what a great painting tool.  So... I created the sponge toy and tweaked it to turn it into a sponge brush and we used the brushes to paint fireworks for our New Years craft today.



Here's how to create the brush...

For each brush, you need 2 sponges, an elastic, and a popsicle stick.

Cut each sponge into 3 equal pieces.

Gather the sponge pieces and place an elastic around the centre - wrapping several times.

It will look like this :).

Add a popsicle stick and twist it into the elastic to secure the handle for your brush.

Once it's secure, position the popsicle stick in the centre.

Have fun painting!
