Make Magical Disneyland Fireworks in Your Own Home!
April 23, 2024

One of the most magical things about Disneyland is the nighttime fireworks display. They are simply spectacular and a must see. It will complete your day at Disneyland with a bang! We can't ever decide what to watch...the beautiful show in the sky, or the look on kids' faces while they are watching. It is pure joy.

We thought it would be fun to create a little nighttime Disney magic of our own with indoor fireworks. But, since explosives, kids, and the indoors are not a great combo, we had to get creative. We hope you enjoy lighting up your evening with a bright and sparkling flashlight fireworks show!

You will need:

To start, screw the top off of the flashlight and remove the shiny reflective cone. It is easy to pop the pieces out with just a little bit of pressure. Paint it black. Rubbed the paint on with a cotton Q-tip. It doesn't need to be perfect. The black paint is necessary to make the shapes show clearly.

While the paint is drying, use the clear plastic circle part of the light as a pattern. Trace around the circumference onto black cardstock.

Cut out the circle. You need at least one black circle per flashlight. You can cut out several extra circles for multiple "fireworks" to use in their show.

Place the paper circle onto a piece of cork or styrofoam. You could even use your carpet, if you aren't too picky. Use a push pin to poke holes into the circle. Make shapes, patterns, or designs. Kids will have a great time designing all their stencil ideas.

When the paint is dry, put the flashlights back together again. Place the black circle into the top of the flashlight when the clear plastic would typically go. It should stay in place nicely once everything is screwed back together.

When the flashlights are ready for the show, turn off the lights and let the kids shine their fireworks flashlights onto the ceiling. Flip them on and off to make the light burst! Turned on some Disney music to make things exciting and the kids can added their own exploding sound effects.

For extra fun to use these amazing fireworks flashlights for Halloween! (A two for one craft! Awesome, right?) And, the kids can be extra safe as they are out on the town collecting tasty goodies during this dark and spooky holiday. Make carrying a light fun and cool with flashlight silhouettes.

Another technique for simple designs like a Mickey Mouse shape is to use black cardstock. You can trace a pattern onto the paper, or do it freehand. Take the fireworks stencils out of the flashlight and replace the clear plastic cover to the front. It will look like a regular flashlight again! Then, tape the silhouette onto the center of the light. Ta-Da! Instant cool light. Note: This craft only works with a single bulb flashlight that has been painted black on the inside.

Another fun Halloween design would be to add black teeth to the edges of the light or maybe turn it into an eye. Wouldn't that be creepy? The possibilities are limitless.
