Firecrackers - 2014's Version

Happy Fourth of July! And Happy Adoption of the Declaration of Independence, America!

Some of you may recall my firecracker post from last year:


I remade my firecrackers over the weekend with the original materials I bought for this flannel:

5 little firecrackers getting ready to zoom (hold up 5 fingers)
Sizzle, sizzle, sizzle (wiggle fingers upward, building anticipation)
BOOM! (clap hands above head while a second person slaps the exploded firecracker over one of the "candles" already on the board)

Same (unexploded) firecrackers, different flannel boards:

 All exploded firecrackers are about 9" in diameter:
 Some close-ups:

 This one has little LED twinkling stars that look really cool in person:
