Countdown to Singapore’s National Day Parade 2011: Fireworks with Oil Pastels

In 6 days’ time, Singapore will celebrate its 46th National Day.  To commemorate the event, we’re kicking off a series of themed NDP crafts.  🙂

This first one is titled Fireworks.

*****

Lately, we’ve introduced oil pastels as an art medium to the kids, and they’ve been having fun with it, particularly DD.  We looked up some pictures of the NDP fireworks on the internet (click here for the link), handed them the oil pastels, and off they went! 

You will need: Dark coloured cardstock, oil pastels (crayons work too, but oil pastel shades come out more vibrant).

After that was done, DD wanted to draw some more fireworks, so she got out some regular white paper. Father and daughter worked on their individual pieces.

 All done!
