Bubble Wrap Fun


Lengths of packing bubble wrap
Toy hammers
Plastic sewing needles


1. Save all the packing bubble wrap that you get in packaging
and ask companies and stores to save you all of
the wrap they get.
2. Tape the lengths of bubble wrap to the floor. Let the children hop and pop! Also encourage
them to think of other body parts that can pop the bubbles, too, such as elbows, knees,
shoulders and bottoms. Discourage the children from popping them with their heads or
noses because the floor is hard!
3. Tape the bubble wrap to a table. Give the children toy hammers to pound and pop the bubbles
or give them plastic sewing needles to pop them.
4. Place small pieces of bubble wrap in the sensory table. Let the children pop them only with
their hands. Which way pops them the best?
