I was trying to tidy up our spare room and hunt down some Christmas wrapping paper when Boo managed to find my bubble wrap stash!
Have you ever noticed how bubble wrap seems to multiply if left for too long?
I was wondering how we could use up some of the wrap in an activity and decided on a bubbly, painty snake….
What You’ll Need
- Paper plate
- Paint – we used yellow Crayola washable
- Rolling pin
- Wiggly eyes
- Sellotape & Scissors
- Bubble wrap
- Red card – just a tiny bit for the tongue
I covered the rolling pin with the bubble wrap and smothered it with yellow paint – sort of looks like a corn cob!
Boo had fun rolling the ‘bubble cob’ over the paper plate creating awesome patterns. He absolutely loved rolling the bubble covered tool over his hands and then popping the bubbles.
“Pop Pop Mummy!”
We set it to one side to dry and then cut a spiral into it…”Snip Snip Mummy!”
Wiggly eyes and a wiggly tongue and we were done!
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Activity Time: 15 minutes
