It turns out that bubble wrap makes an excellent paintbrush! Here's the easy How-to:
Bubble Wrap Apple Trees
- bubble wrap
- big paper (you can use normal paper if you choose, but the big paper makes it easier to swipe the bubble wrap around)
- red, blue, yellow, and brown paint
- paint tins
1- Prepare the bubble wrap by cutting it into manageable pieces.
2- Pour the brown and red paints into their own tins. Mix the yellow and blue to make green. This lets you review colors, mixing, and gives your trees many hues of green!
3- Explain how to make a tree and let your children create! Remember this activity is as much about the experience as the product, so if the tree doesn't quite look like a tree, that's okay!
We had to add a toothpick to the supply list too.
Have you ever painted with bubble wrap?
We used bubble wrap that came with some shipped items, but you can also buy it just to play with! Here are some convenient Amazon affiliate links...you never pay more for clicking through them, but we do receive a small amount for referring you. See my policies page here.
I may share at any of these parties!
