On November 5th there are a number of quick and easy Bonfire Night Crafts that you can make.  One of our old favourites is painting crayon resist firework scene pictures.  They are easy  to make even for early mark makers.

You will need:

White paper
Crayons
Watercolour Paint (Black or Blue are great for night skys)
A paint brush
Water

Step 1:  Crayons

First use crayons to draw your fireworks.  You can  draw “star” lines…

draw swirls…

or draw curved lines. A variety of different fireworks looks great and you can even add a simple bonfire.

Step 2:  Paint

Next paint over the whole sheet with a black or dark blue watercolour (you can mix poster paint with water if you don’t have watercolour paints).  Crayon resists water so your crayon pattern resists the paint.

This technique very quickly makes effective Bonfire Night paintings.

Display them to decorate your home for Bonfire Night.

This crayon resist technique is also great for secret messages.  Write a message in white crayon and ask a friend to paint over to read the message.  I used to write my kids names for them to paint over while they learnt to read and write their names too.



What Bonfire Night crafts have you made this year?  Have you made a Guy?

    How simple and yet something that looks so cool, I am definitely doing this with my kids tomorrow. They've been asking to make firework pics and all I could think of was black card and glitter
