If you are celebrating the Chinese New Year you can paint fireworks!
a wax candle
liquid watercolour paints
paint brushes with the same colour handle as the paint
The child draws or scribbles randomly over the paper with the wax candle.
Then they apply the paint over the candle wax.
They have to learn that they were ‘washing’ the paper with the paint rather than painting with the paint.
They need to be careful to put the right colour paintbrush into the right colour paint pot.
Some of the colours will mix on the paper so explore the results!
You could paint these fireworks for any celebration!
