Bubble Wrap Flowers

We’re really excited for spring to come and the boys are loving the springy crafts we’ve been doing!  We recently received a few packages with bubble wrap in them, and I’ve been dying to do a bubble wrap craft!  So, bubble wrap flowers it was!

I started off by making some flower petal stamps.  I cut the petal shape out of the box and bubble wrap.

I glued the bubble wrap to the cardboard box, and then I glued a bottle cap to the back (to act as a handle)

After the stamps had dried, we got ready to use them!  The boys wanted pink and purple flowers, so I set them up with a plate of paint and their stamps.  We decided to use legal size paper to have nice long flowers.

Add the paint…

And stamp!!  We stamped in a circle to make the flower.  After we had a flower we used a round sponge in some yellow paint to make the center.

And added stems using green paint.  We made leaves with our thumbs!

Baloo’s masterpiece!  He used the yellow sponge to make a sun too.

Royal wasn’t as interested in making a typical flower, but he sure did have fun!

Even Logi-Bear got in on the action!

We ended up with some lovely and bright flowers for our wall!

  1. Bubble wrap is one of my favorite painting mediums for kids! I LOVE how you transformed the bubble wrap into a stamp and the use of the bottle cap is just plain brilliant! ๐Ÿ™‚
