Bubble wrap painting

Bubble wrap is brilliant for making arty prints. Especially ones shaped like animals!

You'll need:

  • Bubble wrap
  • Animal shapes
  • Safety scissors
  • Paints
  • Paper or card


  • 1

    Draw out some animal shapes – you can trace around images from online if that's easier!

  • 2

    Place bubble wrap over the shapes and cut around them with safety scissors, so you have lots of animal-shaped bubble wrap.

  • 3

    Squeeze different coloured paints onto separate trays, or just bits of card or paper.

  • 4

    Let your kids dip the cut-out shapes into the paint and then press them against a clean sheet of paper, creating animal prints!
