A Year of Bubble Wrap Activities for Kids

To say that we love bubble wrap over here at Crafty Kids at Home would probably be an understatement, OBSESSED with bubble wrap is probably a more accurate description! Ever since we first used it to make these Bubble Wrap Jellyfish back in 2014, it has been a regular feature on our arts and crafts activity schedule. We have painted with it, on it, squished it, up-cycled it, in fact we came up with a new way to use bubble wrap every month this year. Here is a look back at our year of Bubble Wrap Activities for Kids.
