Before starting this project, you’ll need the following materials:
Cardstock, Bingo Daubers
July is quickly approaching and we’re gearing up for the big firework display. My boys LOVE watching fireworks shoot into the night sky.
My oldest son is so excited about fireworks that I thought we should do a craft to get him pumped. I saw this bingo dauber craft on Pinterest and knew it would be a fun and easy craft for my son to do.
I went to the Dollar Tree and got red and blue bingo daubers. For a dollar, you can’t beat the big color selection they have. Plus, there are other crafts you can make with bingo daubers too!
Step 1 – Create Your Fireworks
This is probably one of the easiest crafts my son has ever done. All you need to do is hammer the dauber hard on the paper.
It took a couple practice runs to get our perfect firework, but once he got the hang of it he had a blast. I think he really enjoyed whacking the dauber on the page…must be the boy in him.
Quick Tip: To keep your fireworks from mixing, I recommend using one color at a time.
Step 2 – Finishing Touches
The ink from the bingo daubers takes a while to dry (about 2 hours). I would suggest keeping the fireworks in a safe place. Once the craft dries, it’s ready to display!
Quick Tip: Carefully lay fireworks on a flat surface to avoid running. As you can see from my sons picture, he didn’t pick the first one up flat so the ink started to drip.
My son had a lot of fun with these bingo dauber fireworks. It was super easy and inexpensive. I can’t wait to create even MORE crafts for the fourth!
