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.
