Hand Print Paper Cutout Fireworks

From All Kids Network

For older kids who can work with scissors, this is a fun project to make their own firework hand prints!


  • construction paper (red, white, blue, black)
  • pencil
  • glitter glue
  • scissors
  • glue

Kids can take turns tracing their hand prints on the colored construction paper. Cut the hand prints out and glue them into a starburst pattern on the black paper. The kids can then decorate the hand prints with glitter glue.

Hand Print Stamping Fireworks

From Real Bollywood

This version of the project is perfect for younger children! Not only will they have a blast stamping with their hands, they also get to participate in a similar project as the older kids.


  • non-toxic paint (red, white blue)
  • construction paper (white or black as background)
  • glitter glue
  • paper towels for cleanup

Children can stamp their hands into the paint to make their own patriotic fireworks. Alternate the colors before each stamp. Once dried, the children can decorate with glitter glue!
