Bonfire Night Crafts

Celebrate Bonfire Night this year with some fun "firework" and bonfire crafts for your kids. Often children enjoy the idea of fireworks more than the actual fireworks themselves, which are a bit loud and scary! But we are sure they will enjoy sitting down to these firework activities.

And if the worst comes to the worst and you can't get outside to enjoy a firework display, you can make some of your own with these crafty ideas!
