Fireworks Art made with a Fork and craft paint, quick and easy craft ideas for kids, 4th of July art projects #JULY4th, #fireworks, #KidCraftsA few days ago I showed you how to make Fireworks with a fork.  This is along the same idea but has a twist… my girls had so much fun making and painting fireworks.  I love to see how creative they become. They thought these ones looked more like the fountain fireworks you let off at home.
