One of my favourite things about New Year’s Eve is fireworks. I have always been a fan of fireworks displays, and will happily take any excuse to watch them! They make a great theme for kids crafts too, and this simple fireworks craft using a toilet roll stamper is ideal for kids of all ages.

You’ll only need a few simple materials for this fireworks craft idea, most of them you’ll probably already have around the house.


  • Gold and Silver Craft Paint
  • Empty Toilet Paper Roll
  • Scissors
  • Black Construction Paper
  • Paper Plate
  • Paint brush or sponge brush

Here’s how you make it:

First, use the scissors to cut strips half way up the toilet paper roll, like this:

Then, use your hand to push them outward, and squeeze a small sized amount of paint onto a paper plate.

Use a paint brush or sponge to spread the paint out into a circle

Gently press the toilet paper roll onto the paint and move around to cover the strips.

Place the toilet paper roll down onto the paper, lightly press down then turn it right and left to flick the
strips over the paper. This will create the “firework” effect.

Repeat with the second color of paint. Allow to dry, embellish as desired! Adding the year in glitter glue is a nice touch for New Year’s Eve. If the kids are having a New Year’s party in the house, they can stick their fireworks artwork up on the walls as posters to decorate.
