Toti has been declared a fireworks free zone this festive season. If you also feel sparklers and firecrackers are holiday hazards with little ones around, here are some fun alternatives to fireworks.
Get this party poppin’
Make your own firework fun and get a little crafty with a few of these rocket confetti poppers.
Bubbles bursting in the air
Take your bubbles to a whole new level and make some glow in the dark ones to light up the sky.
Baby, you’re a firework
Mix and match different colors of dye and watch the ‘fireworks’ explode in a jar.
Plop, splat, kaboom!
Who says explosions only belong to fireworks? Simply fill up some water balloons with red, white and blue paint, and splatter the balloons on a tarp or safe surface.
Exploding foam is a wonderful replacement for noisy firecrackers. Mix in some colors and let the kids make their own version of foaming fireworks.
The twilight’s last gleaming
Splatter some glow in the dark paint in a jar, let it dry for a few hours and light it up with a battery-powered light. Little kids will love carrying around their own firework lanterns.
Grab a glow stick
Glow sticks are the easiest way to swap out the old explosives. Fill up a bucket with a bundle of glow sticks and make a cute sign to go along with it.
