My daughter (4.5 years old) loves any sort of craft that involves painting or coloring. My son (21 months) loves to pull the paint supplies off the table and (almost) dump them on the carpet. Anyone else have this problem?
Anyway… today we made Bubble Wrap prints. We used red and blue paint because that is what I had from our July 4th bubble prints craft.
Here are the supplies you will need:
Foam paint brushes
And here is how you make them:
Cut the bubble wrap to match your paper size (in our case 8.5×11)
Let your child use the foam brush to cover the bubble wrap with as many colors as they like. I found it best to “dab” the paint onto the bubble wrap. If you have a small roller, that would work too.
Press the bubble wrap onto the paper to make unique designs. Make sure you don’t press too hard. You don’t want the bubble wrap to pop.
This kept my daughter busy for almost an hour!
When finished, you can rinse the bubble wrap in the sink, let it dry and re-use it.
