Make patriotic firework paintings with no prep work, just a fork from your kitchen drawer.
Red and blue paint
Dip the bottom of the fork into the blue paint and press down so it shows the lines. Tell your child to repeat this, going around in a circle. Wipe off the fork and dip it into the red paint. Go over the blue paint with the red, using the same painting method.
