Fireworks Themed Crafts for Kids

Published:

This Bonfire Night, we won't be putting on our hats and wellies and heading to a local fireworks display... it's all going to be a little different. It's a shame for the kids to miss out on the magic of Bonfire Night, so why not get creative and enjoy some fireworks themed crafts! We also plan on cooking hot dogs and s'mores in the garden, having a few sparklers and doing some Fireworks themed crafts.
