Bubble wrap print painting is a really fun process art painting activity. It’s very simple to set up, and lots of fun for all ages. We have done this as an after school activity, or for rainy days at home.
You can use the bubble wrap print paintings to make pictures or crafts, or just enjoy the process!
Supplies needed for bubble wrap print painting
- Bubble wrap (the large or small type – either is fine!)
- Paint in any colour
- Paint brush
- Plain paper
It’s always fun to experiment with painting on different textures, and since bubble wrap always instantly attracts my children this one was a hit with them.
To make the prints, first we squeeze some paint onto the bubble wrap
You can try any colour combination that you like for different effects
Carefully lift up, and you have your print.
You can use them to make blossom trees for Spring, or adapt to any design. We made some similar bubble wrap painted trees for Autumn, but using bubble wrap as a mitten.
