Colorful Mother’s Day Gift Wrap Made by Kids
It’s been awhile since I’ve done bubble prints with my preschoolers.
In fact, you might recall me talking about it here.
We loved making mounds of colorful bubbles on white paper!
So when I was thinking about how we could decorate white lunch sacks for our Mother’s Day gifts, I decided to give bubble painting a try.
Pour some bubble solution into cups. You will want a separate cup for each color.
Then, add some liquid watercolor. Just eyeball how much you think you need. If you want a stronger color, add more of the watercolors.
Add a wand to each cup and have the paper sacks ready to go.
On the day we made these gift bags it was a beautiful May morning.
Since there aren’t many supplies that are needed, it was easy to haul the materials to our patio.
I simply set the containers of colored bubbles on one of our outdoor play tables.
When getting started, remind the children to aim towards the paper.
They can start with one color, then add more.
Our children loved this activity because blowing regular bubbles is always such a hit when we go outside.
When they realized they were blowing colored bubbles during this activity, they were so excited!
As each gift bag was finished, I set it on a different table to dry in the sun.
Of course, this can all be done indoors. I was simply taking advantage of a gorgeous day of outdoor fun!
Assembling the gift bags:
Once the bags are completely dry, it’s time to put them to use!
This year we made canvas flower photo magnets as Mother’s Day gifts. (Read about it here: Photo Flower Magnet.)
I love the children to part of every process, and this includes choosing the color of tissue paper, wrapping the gift in the paper, and then placing it inside the gift bag.
We then added one of our homemade Mother’s Day cards.
We presented these gifts to our moms during our Muffins for Mommy event.
I love standing back and watching smiles erupt from both the mommies and their children as the bags are carefully opened.
