Bubble Wrap Art
Newspapers or plastic tablecloth, bubble wrap, tempera paint, paint brush or sponge brush, paper
Don't throw away the bubble wrap protecting your valuable shipments -- save it for a fun art project! Protect your table with newspaper or a plastic tablecloth, and put several colors of tempera paint onto a paper plate. Give your child a large paintbrush or sponge brush, and have her paint the bubble side of the bubble wrap. Once the bubble wrap is covered, gently press a sheet of paper on top, then lift off to see the dotted pattern. Use different colors on different areas of the bubble wrap, or layer colors for a rainbow effect.
