Open Ended "Loose parts" Play With Fireworks
Everyone loves fireworks (even those of us who don't like the noise). I have some noise less ways for you and your friends to enjoy them together. Make your own "fireworks" show. Fill a shallow container with shaving cream assist kids in dripping water colors into the shaving cream. Use Combs or sticks to draw in the shaving cream (slightly mixing the colors). Gently lay a paper on the top and peel back. wipe off the excess.
Another activity I like to do is to give each child a coffee filter and glue it to a colored square sheet of paper (as a background). Then you can be creative use tissue paper and glue to the filter. Or you can paint the filter. These are also very pretty.
Last but defiantly not least fun. fill water balloons with paint. Let the kids either throw them at a wall that is covered in paper Or if you have a deck or porch, lay the paper on the ground and let the kids throw the balloons at the paper. (don't use a lot of water mostly paint). Just use enough to color the paper. I hope you enjoyed these activities and if there something you might be struggling with? or feeling frustration around while you're creating and engaging at home? leave me a message and I would love to help in anyway I can.
