If your parents were anything like mine, you watched over the fence enviously as all your neighbors got to play with home fireworks. At the time, I was wildly jealous of those kids, but I should probably thank my parents now, sitting here with all my fingers and pretty average hearing. One thing those kids might be better at now though, is this quiz. Can you tell which fireworks are which?
Below you’ll hear five fireworks sounds. We’ve got a Roman Candle, Bottle Rocket, Spinner, Sparkler and Popper. Can you tell which is which? If not, you can find the answers at the bottom.
