Glitter Fireworks

Make your own fireworks with paper and glitter!  The black-paper background makes your "glitter"works pop like bombs bursting in air.  

black construction paper
red, blue, and white or silver glitter
white glue
newspapers for underneath the project
a straw (optional)

Working on top of newspapers, use the glue to make fireworks stars on your paper.  If your glue is soft, try dropping a blob on the paper and blowing on it through the straw.  See what kinds of shapes you make.

Sprinkle glitter onto the glue. Tip your paper up and slide the excess glitter off your picture and back into the glitter container.
Let the glue dry and display your picture!
