How to make Fireworks in a Glass

If your kids are scared of real fireworks try this fireworks in a glass activity at home instead. It's a fun science experiment exploring density and a great way to celebrate New Year's Eve at home with the kids. Plus you can do it with just a few items from your pantry!

If you have younger children then you will need to do the experiment for them, however older children will be able to do it themselves. My 7yr old did this experiment on her own and was fascinated watching the fireworks drop down and blend into the water. We did this experiment as part of our New Years celebrations for the kids because they never stay up late enough to watch the real fireworks {we also did fireworks salt painting and toilet paper roll fireworks}.

Easy Toilet Paper Roll Fireworks Painting for Kids

If your kids love fireworks, but don't love the loud bangs they make, try making some toilet paper roll fireworks paintings instead. This craft is a great way to get creative and a fun way for children all over the world to celebrate special days or festivals like New Year's Eve, 4th of July, Diwali, Hanabi Taikai, Chinese New Year or Bastille Day. We celebrated New Year's last year by making fireworks salt paintings, so opted for toilet paper roll fireworks this year. Both crafts are a great way for kids to practice their fine motor skills and are fun classroom activities too.
