I would never have known the amount of color wrapped up in a sparkler had it not been for Nana’s celebratory pastel. And, had it not been for Jenn’s (of Daze of Adventure & The Homeschool Post) suggestion for the next summer fun tutorial.
Vary your sparkler with blue, red and yellow.
Now your wand. It’s blue. Then the light from the sparkler shines on the blue wand too (draw a white line right up next to your blue wand). You can decide if you’d like to do any blending of your sparkler. Just use your finger tip to blend if you’d like.
A note on pastels: Pastels are an easy, forgiving medium. Fun for children and adults alike! Details on the pastels and paper we use, how and where to purchase, and links to all of Nana’s other pastel lessons (over 20 now!) are all contained in the post Pastels plus links to tutorials. A simple set is very affordable.
The practical aspects of a mess: Pastels are blessedly messy. We always have baby wipes close by to wipe hands. We wear something we don’t mind getting stained or don a smock.
Don’t you just love sparklers?
