Bonfire Night Tips

Wrap up warmly. As the night's chill sets in, stay cozy by piling on layers. Set up a designated area for warm clothing, ensuring gloves and scarves are within reach as you revel in the night's activities.

Illuminate your space. Transform your garden into a twinkling wonderland with fairy lights draped along fences and tree branches. Opt for solar or battery-powered LEDs for a bright and eco-friendly choice.

Try glowing accessories. Add a sparkle to the night with glow-in-the-dark accessories. Kids and adults alike will enjoy sporting glowing bangles, necklaces, or even glow sticks as they dance around the bonfire.

Bonfire Night Crafts

Sparkler rings. Engage the little ones with fun crafts like sparkler rings made from glittery pipe cleaners or cardboard rockets decorated with colourful papers and glitters. Create miniature paper 'Guys' as a modern, safe twist to the tradition.

Cardboard rockets: Don’t throw your empty toilet rolls away! Combine the with tissue paper, coloured cardboard and loads of glitter to make mini rockets.

Paper Guys: Traditional Guys tend to be life-sized, but if that’s not an option, why not try a small version instead? Cut out a paper figure and decorate how you like!
