How to make cardboard tube Firework prints

We used kitchen paper rolls as they are longer and we could use both ends.  We cut slits in to the ends before cutting the length of the tube and then rolling it tighter and taped them.

Put your paint on to paper plates and use the cardboard tube to print on to your paper.

We used one end for each of the colours, so as to not contaminate the paint and mix the colours together.

Before the paint had dried we covered it with translucent glitteradding glitter
