Bubble Wrap Fun

Activity for an individual child

Age group: 18-40 months

Duration of activity: 30 minutes

Materials:

  • Bubble wrap
  • Tempera paint

Save the bubble wrap that comes with packages. You can also buy quantities of it fairly cheaply. Bubble wrap, like any other plastic, can be fatal if your child uses it to cover his face. Always use with hands-on supervision.

  1. Let your child enjoy popping the bubbles. Show him how to roll the wrap up to pop more than one at a time.
  2. Spread the bubble wrap on the ground, and let your child walk and stomp on it.
  3. Cut out small squares of bubble wrap. Show your child how to bunch it up and dip it in the paint. Let him push the painted bubbles on the paper for an interesting effect.
