Red, White, and Blue Sand Fireworks Craft For Kids

Red, White, and Blue Sand Fireworks Craft For Kids

This Red, White, and Blue Sand Fireworks craft for kids is all the messy fun without having to use glitter. Such a pretty and sparkly craft for 4th of July or Memorial Day!

Kids love craft that sparkle. Sparkly craft like this fireworks craft are so pretty. But let’s be honest, sometimes committing to glitter is not something us adults want to do. There are a number of reasons why glitter isn’t your thing. It’s not very eco-friendly, it can be VERY messy, and one glitter mishap and you know you will be picking glitter off of your hair or clothes for months.

Glitter never goes away.

Fortunately, you can get the sparkly effect with other craft materials too! I love this simple but super fun red, white, and blue sand fireworks craft! There is still plenty of messy fun factor, but without the baggage of glitter. This would be a perfect craft project for Memorial Day, 4th of July, or really anytime in the summer!
