The next time you get a Bubble-Wrapped item in the mail, don't toss that wrapper. Along with being a fun way to encourage fine motor skills by popping those itty-bitty plastic bubbles, your little one can use it for creating a really cool painting.
You'll never look at Bubble Wrap the same way after this fun activity! And your lil one will love getting messy with a bit of paint. Feeling adventurous? Instead of offering your tot a paintbrush, see what happens when your lil one only uses his fingers for this craft!
Here are the easy directions!
What You'll Need:
- Bubble Wrap
- Scrap paper
- White paper
- Cut a section of the Bubble Wrap about the same size as the sheet of white paper.
- Select a few colors of paint to use with your tot. Fold the sheet of scrap paper in half to use as a palette for the paint. Squeeze out a small dab of each paint onto the paper and place next to the Bubble Wrap along with a paintbrush. Or let your lil one go crazy and just finger-paint directly onto the Bubble Wrap.
- Encourage your tot to create an organized design of repeating shapes or enjoy mixing and blending the paints to create areas of color.
- Once the Bubble Wrap is covered, place the white paper over the paint and press. Lift up the paper to reveal the cool Bubble Wrap print.
