Looking for a Safe 4th of July Sparkler? These are a great option to celebrate Independence Day since most of us who live in a "fire area," it's also great for children that are afraid of or too small to have regular sparklers. 

No-Spark Sparkler Craft

Supplies Needed:

  • Small wooden dowels about 14 inches long
  • Wired star garland in solid or multiple colors - find at a discount or dollar store
  • Clear packing tape
  • Red or blue cardstock cut to 2 in by 1 1/2 in
  • Glue or glue dots
  • Scissors

 How to:

  2. Trim off the stars from the bottom of each piece about inch up
  3. Line the pieces up on the cardstock and tape down
  4. Then add glue dots to the dowel at the top where the paper will attach
