I recently came up with the idea to create bubble wrap learning. What kid (or adult for that matter) doesn’t like to pop bubble wrap. Every time we get a package containing bubble wrap, my children are quick to ask for the packing material to start popping away. We twist it, use our fingers to pop it individually, stomp on it, and my kids have even driven over it in their play car. If they enjoy it so much, why not turn it into a learning activity?
For Abby, we worked on addition math problems. All you do is write math problems on the stickers and put the stickers on large size bubble wrap. I found my bubble wrap at Walmart, but I know you can find it on Amazon too. Duck Brand Bubble Wrap, Large Extra Cushioning Bubbles, 12 Inches x 15 Feet (1304499)
Kenzie is working on beginning reading and had just as much fun popping her bubbles. The sticker dots are the kind you can get for a garage sale. You can find these at an Office Supply store, possibly the Dollar Store and Amazon – Color Coding Round Dot Labels – Assorted Neon Colors.
Corban had a blast searching for his colors. We had so much fun with this learning activity.
Very fun! Our bubble wrap never lasts long enough to do any learning. I have been lucky to save some of it to pack things with! lol Featured you this week on Mom’s Library!
Thanks so much for featuring me, Ashley. I’m glad you liked the idea.
Love this! I featured your post in a round-up of Fun Ways to Play with Bubble Wrap. You can check it out at http://pinspiredhome.blogspot.com/2014/05/tips-tricks-thursday-bubble-wrap.html
Thank you so much for the inspiration! 🙂
Thanks so much for including it. What a fun round up. I’ll be pinning that one!
We Love this activity. Thank you for sharing. If possible could we add it to our blog and link back to your site? Thanks Dannie @Teach Your Monster to Read.
I allow the use of one photo and then a link back to the entire idea and tutorial. I would prefer you not to re-write all the instructions. Thanks for asking.
