Materials needed to make great fireworks!

How to make easy cardboard tube fireworks:

This is super easy to do!

  • First, you cut up your cardboard tube. I cut strips two inches long. Fireworks can have different shapes. I think these thin strips work the best.
  • We added white, yellow, red and blue paint to a plate and slowly started dipping the tubes into the paint and printing.
  • Print – Print – Print!
  • Tip. Add a little white to all colors – it makes them stand out on the dark background.
