Bubble Wrap Art Prints
You will need:
If you don’t have any bubble wrap saved from a package you can always buy the stuff. I was lucky enough to have two kinds of bubble wrap at home. I had your normal run of the mill bubble wrap, but I also happened to have some BIG bubble wrap with giant circles. So it was nice to have that variety. But this will be a fun project no matter what kind of bubble wrap you have. These are the two different types we used.
I cut the bubble wrap so that it was a little smaller than the tray we were using. Next, I let the kids squirt a few different colors of paint on the tray. The kids found this fun to do. I mixed the colors with a spoon so I would have more even coverage which you can see on the top tray. It would be interesting to do some prints without spreading it out like on the bottom tray in the photo.
