It's ds2's birthday so we are having a family gathering at home. We are having chilli, corned beef hash, sausages and chips plus chocolate apples with sprinkles that the kids and I are going to make on Saturday afternoon.
We back on to a rugby club who have the most spectacular fireworks display every year so we'll be out in the garden for that
Dh has bought 25 sparklers - the kids have never done them before as they've always been a bit too little so hopefully they'll enjoy that this year.

Someone suggested to me to get black paper/card and chalk to do firework pics on. Or if you are brave you could do paint splashing on black card?!
Or could you make cardboard Catherine wheels? YOu know where you have a circle of card (they paint or colour) and you put string through it and hold at each end and it spins the circle? Not sure how to explain that very well - do you know what I mean?

What about get them to color some card in various colours with pencils/felt pens, then cover this with black crayon then use lolly sticks or something to scratch a firework pic on. make rockets out of kitchen roll tubes - cone top, colour tube then put red/orange/yellow paper tissue coming out of bottom and a lolly stick for the stick. hope this helps
