We’ve been reading books about snowmen, so I thought of a way to recycle bubble wrap and have the preschoolers create this snowman art…



I cut circles from the bubble wrap and placed them on trays along with white paint and brushes.

The wonderful thing about using paint on bubble wrap is that it washes off easily so it can be used again.

The circles were then placed painted side down onto paper.

After patting the bubble wrap, the preschoolers lifted the circles off the paper.

Most wanted 3 circles for their snowmen, so they placed more painted circles face down. It was a fun counting lesson, too!

We let them dry until the next class day. Then it was time to adorn our bubble wrap snowmen.

I provided trays of various loose pieces I’ve collected.

The preschoolers applied the pieces with glue.

  2. Awesome! Hands-on and cheap! What’s not to love! Although I could see some of my preschoolers getting totally distracted by popping the bubbles!

    • I was surprised mine did not, as they love to pop bubbles when we put packing wrap on the floor in the gym. I think they were too interested in how the paint felt being applied on the bubbles.

  3. Gosh you can do so many different things with bubble wrap can’t you? I love the different looks of the snowmen. Thanks for linking up to Mummy Mondays.
