Day 7 of our 31 Day Sensory Play Challenge leads us to bubble wrap painting. Bubble wrap is a material we haven’t explored much within our sensory play yet. I know Adam likes to pop the bubbles and loves painting so I thought combining the two materials would be fun.
To create a bubble wrap rolling pin I wrapped bubble wrap around a cardboard tube. I attached sellotape underneath the plastic to hold it in place. We had some finger paint that needed using up so used that instead of our usual paint. Whilst I set up the activity Adam and his cousin Beth had great fun popping the bubbles.
Uncle Ben couldn’t wait to give it a try. He demonstrated to the two toddlers what to do.
Adam was slightly hesitant about the activity. He moved the bubble wrap rolling pin backwards and forwards but was more interested getting paint off of the rolling pin to create hand prints.
Beth, on the other hand, got involved straight away. She managed to roll the bubble wrap along her paper and enjoyed adding additional paint.
Afterwards, the two cousins had a great time with Uncle Ben playing “Pirate Ship” shoulders – not for the faint hearted!
