4th of July, Kid-Friendly Fireworks

What you'll need:
Red, white & blue chenille stems or pipe cleaners
Craft glue
Red, silver and blue glitter
Thick sponge
Clear thread (optional)

1.  Gather the chenille stems and cut them in half. You will need 5-6 whole stems of the same color to make one firework.
2. Dip approximately a half inch of each of the stems in craft glue, then submerge tips in a small bowl of glitter. Lay the stems on a thick sponge to dry.
3. Gather all stems together except one. Take the extra stem and twist it around the others. Bend and flare out the arms to resemble a firework. You can hang from ceiling with clear thread or decorate a table with them.
