    What a fun idea for a unit study! Love the art project – we’ve done something similar using paper bags and creating aboriginal art. I’ll have to add this one to our schedule – I think my daughter would love it (and who wouldn’t want to learn about fireworks?)!

    This was a big hit in our house. My daughter has done a bunch of them since we first did this. It is a great one to do around a “firework” holiday! 🙂

    This is a great time of year for this post! I didn’t know I could make our own scratch off paper. Thank you so much for a great tutorial. My kids are going to love it!

    As we were doing it my children pointed out that it was like those scratch ones you can buy. I think they are going to make them to scratch other things as well!

    This is a great list! Would you mind adding a link to a fireworks post I wrote some time ago?

    I never even thought of making my own scratch art paper. Wow. Gonna have to try this now.

    Right? Instead of having to get to the store to buy more, we easily made a stack of them for our kids to use!

    My kids love scratch art. I never thought of doing it for fireworks, but what a great idea because the sky is black, and the colors underneath looks so spectacular!

    I was so pleased with how the colors popped on these! It was fairly simple, fun, and the end result was fabulous!
