For those of you who are like me and have done a good deal of online shopping this holiday season, here’s a great activity for the kiddos who desperately want to hear the bubble wrap “pop” but aren’t quite coordinated enough to do it well.
Bust out a piece of paper (for this we used our trusty butcher paper), wrap the kids’ feet in bubble wrap, and coat the bottoms in paint.
Then be sure to remind them that they have to be careful (stomping is much safer than skating), and ready, set, pop!
They thought this activity was hilarious and asked me to paint their feet again and again. They wanted to paint every square inch of the butcher paper, and I finally just squirted dollops of paint directly on the paper in order to keep up with their demands.
In the end, I had big plans to cut out some kind of holiday shape out of the mural, like a Christmas tree, but it never came to be. It was a beautiful work of art all on its own!
A fun way to get the kids moving while stuck inside this winter!
