These are the best fireworks we have ever done (and the cheapest)! My dad taught me this as a kid and now my kids have a blast, too. (Thanks Dad!)
- Get some plain steel wool (no soap). There are different grades. Get the middle grade. The coarse doesn’t lite and the super fine burns too quickly.
- Get a whisk from the dollar store, tie it on the end of a metal clothes hanger. Metal hangers works best, because you can bend the end to make a handle and it keeps it at a distance.
- Place the steel wool in the whisk and light it until just part of it is glowing and then start twisting it around as fast as you can! AMAZING!

I probably wouldn’t make it this fancy, but this is a $5 tarp. Your kids can help you make it.
