Firework Art Project

The fidget spinner craze hit hard. Fidget spinners could be found in every corner of our house. And then the kids got over them.

Sure they still hold their purpose, for the people they were intended to help. But the craze is over, and I’m still finding spinners in random places in my house.

Fidget spinner art is a great way to re-purpose your dusty collection of fidget spinners. You can combine a fidget spinner with string to create a beautiful rainbow, or you can take them outdoors and let your kids make an amazing firework art project!

Along with amazing food, and fireworks; doing arts and crafts is one of our favorite 4th of July family traditions. This project can even be done outdoors, while people are waiting for the real fireworks to begin!

Tips for making this fidget spinner art.

  • This project can get messy! We recommend creating outdoors or in a space where the mess wont be an issue.
  • Before you get started, make sure you use a fidget spinner that can easily be taken apart for cleaning.
  • Show your child to aim for the outside of the spinner. The force created while spinning will pull the paint away from the center.
  • Let your kids experiment with dripping the paint while it’s spinning or add paint and then spin. It is all about the process! There is no “right” or “wrong” way of doing this art project.
