Crafting with the Kiddos Dollar Tree Coffee Filter Fireworks

Here’s what you need to make a Kid-Friendly Firework:

  • Coffee Filters – Dollar Tree
  • Washable Markers; Blue and Red – Dollar Tree
  • Glitter Glue Gold and Silver – Dollar Tree
  • Jumbo Wooden Craft Sticks – Dollar Tree
  • Chenille Stems in Silver and Gold – Dollar Tree
  • Pom Poms in Red, Blue, Silver and Gold Tinsel – Dollar Tree
  • Gallon Size Zipper Bag OR Metal Baking Sheet Pan – Dollar Tree
  • Spray Bottle filled with water – Dollar Tree
  • Glue Gun and Glue Sticks
  • Scissors – I love my Fiskars!
  • Pencil

To begin the Dollar Tree Coffee Filter Fireworks, gather all supplies. 

Flatten round coffee filters, and color in a variety of starburst style patterns with red and blue washable markers. 

Place colored coffee filter on a gallon size zipper bag or metal baking sheet pan and then mist with water from a spray bottle. Set aside to dry. This is a great activity to do outside on a sunny day.

Trim the rounded ends from jumbo wooden craft sticks with scissors.

Color wooden craft sticks with red and blue washable markers in a variety of solids and fun patterns.

Cut silver and gold tinsel chenille stems in half and then in half again. Flip the craft stick over and attach the chenille stem to the top back with the glue gun and glue sticks. Glue tinsel pom pom to the end of the chenille stem, and then attach craft stick firework to the colored coffee filter. Bend chenille stem upwards.

Place fireworks back on the gallon size zipper bag or metal baking sheet pan. Draw long swirls from the center out with silver and gold glitter glue. Let dry completely.
