It’s a well-known fact that kids LOVE to paint. Painting is a great way for kids to show their creative side, let their creative juices flow and practice their fine motor skills. Fireworks Raised Salt Painting is an easy 4th of July craft kids can make. And the best part about this kids’ craft is that there are no fancy “supplies” needed.
And the best part about this easy art project is that your kids can get their creative juices flowing. In other words, they can make a salt painting in any design they want, not just fireworks. So this is definitely a fun kids art project that can be made all year long. Plus it’s colorful. Colorful crafts are so fun to create.
A few notes about art and kids.
- Let them take the lead and let their creative juices flow. No need to micromanage how the finished project will turn out. This is their craft time and I promise they will be happy with their finished result. And you will have a nice piece of refrigerator art to hang too.
- Set aside creative time each day for your kids. Art is fun, so focus on kids art projects as a fun activity and not a task.
- I am a neat freak and when my kids were younger, the mess would get me every time. But, I wish I had that time back. So, don’ stress the mess. Have them help in the clean-up process. Like Mary Poppins says, “Find the fun and snap! The job’s a game.”

How Do I Make A Firework Salt Painting?
Start with a clean workspace and gather your craft supplies. Place the black construction paper on a cookie sheet or piece of parchment paper to keep the salt contained. Draw the fireworks design on the paper.
Generously sprinkle salt over the glue. Allow to dry completely. Shake of any excess salt on you cookie sheet or onto the parchment paper.
When the glue is totally dry, grab your paints and start painting the raised salt design. Allow the paint to dry completely.
