Reuseful UK wants to put a spark into your Bonfire Bonanza.

Here are five great creative activities for you to try with your friends and family. 

1) Catherine Wheels on Sticks


This week everyone will be planning where and how to celebrate this colourful occasion, so we have the perfect craft project for you to create a fire-free Catherine wheel made from card and glitter.

What you will need:

  • Tinsel pipe cleaners
  • Self-adhesive glitter sheets
  • Double sided tape
  • Extra Strong glue
  • Coloured card
  • 3D glitter pens
  • Plus: a pencil, wooden skewers, ruler, an old biro with no ink, and scissors.

For further instructions and more information, visit

2) Crayon Etching Fireworks


What you will need:

  • Felt tips or colouring pencils
  • Card
  • Black crayon

For the instructions and more information head to:

3) Bonfire Blow Painting Art


What you will need:

  • A straw
  • Any coloured piece of paper, perhaps black so it's more realistic to have the bonfire with a night sky background
  • Realistic colours of paint for a bonfire; red, yellow and orange

Take a straw and place a blob of paint on a piece of paper, whatever colour you wish. Blow down the straw to spread the paint across the paper. Move the straw in different directions as you blow to make the paint move in different ways. You could make a bonfire or fireworks exploding in the sky.

4) Cardboard Rockets


What you will need:

  • 2 Cardboard Toilet Rolls, you can make more than two if you would like
  • Yellow and pink ribbon
  • 1 sheet of white card, you might need more than one sheet of card if you're making more than two rockets
  • Q-tips
  • Acrylic paints: white, red, blue, light blue, etc.
  • Scissors
  • Paint brushes

If a glue gun is used, an adult should use it.
