Bonfire Night Pop Up Firework Craft

Remember, remember the 5th of November! With bonfire night only a matter of weeks away we’ve been busy thinking of exciting crafts to make classroom activities go off with a bang! We hope you enjoy this firework how to as much as we do!

How to make your Bonfire Night Pop Up Firework Craft

Step 1. 

Cut a circle from the black paper or card at least 30 cm across but this depends on how big you want your firework to be. You may need to help younger children with this.

Step 2.

Fold the circle in half and then in half again but do not press down on the folds.

Step 3.

Unfold the last fold so you now have a semi-circle and roll into a cone.

Step 4.

Secure with tape or glue.

Step 5.

Cut a hole in the end of your cone big enough for your stick to fit through, try it to make sure.

Step 6.

Take your stick and decorate with lengths of ribbon or tissue paper. Making sure they are long enough to stick out the top of the cone and create fireworks. Remember to leave some of the stick bare so that it can be used as a handle. This can get fiddly, so you may need to help younger children.

Step 7.

Once you have decorated your stick it’s time to decorate your cone however you’d like. We used cut out shapes and pom poms.

Step 8.

Once your cone is dry insert your stick into the cone.

Step 9.

Hide all the ribbons and decorations inside the cone and when you want the firework to go off, simply wave your arm.
