Sparkly Ball and Q-Tip Fireworks for New Year’s


Q-Tip Fireworks! [Source:] – Cut your Q Tips in various sizes. You can actually break them off pretty easily with your hands. Put some water in a small container and add food coloring (6-8 drops is good). Dip your swabs in to the colored water and place on a paper plate. Leave swabs out to dry overnight or put them in the microwave until they are dry. On a piece of black paper glue Q Tips in a circular pattern. For younger children, draw a black dot on the paper and instruct them to glue their swabs all pointing to the dot in the middle. The more food coloring you add the more vibrant your swabs will be!

Sparkly Sequined New Year’s Ball!  [Source:, 3Rs, other] – Create your own sparkly ball to drop! As simple as a styrofoam ball, pins and sequins. Thread a pipe cleaner or attach a ribbon for easy hanging!
