Create leaf fireworks

An easy and fun Bonfire Night craft.

In autumn you'll find the most beautiful leaves on the ground. They are perfect for making colourful leafy fireworks.

  • Look for leaves that are different shapes, sizes and colours
  • Get creative – make a long tail, lay down layers of different colours, or make a huge circle or star shape!
  • Build a bonfire using sticks and flickering leafy 'flames' to go with your fireworks

This activity can be done in your garden, park, school grounds, or local wood. Just find a clear patch of ground and start creating!
