How to Draw Fireworks in Color
The next three pages show you a simple way to draw a full color firework. Each page calls for three colors – red, white and blue or yellow, orange and pink but you can mix it up and replace any color in the design with something else of your choice to make sure that your favorite colors are included.
Just like with the pencil drawing fireworks, copy each square into the empty grids below.
For the colorful fireworks pictures you could use felt tip pens, markers, wax crayons, pencil crayons, oil pastels, paint and a thin paint brush… the choice is yours!
