Before we get started with our bubble wrap project it is time to prepare your child’s workspace.
Layout all the needed materials on your child’s table. You might consider covering your work area using old newspapers to avoid a big clean-up.

Step 3: Cut the Bubble Wrap

First, cut the bubble wrap with the scissors approximately the same size as your popsicle outline.

Step 4: Paint Bubble Wrap

Then paint the bubble wrap with the help of your paintbrush in the preferred color.
We used watercolors but all liquid colors will do.
Make sure to be generous with your paint and clean your paintbrush thoroughly before using a new color.

Step 5: Stamp

Once you are done with step 4, turn your painted bubble wrap around and use it as a stamp.
Place the colored side on your popsicle cut-out template and press firmly down with your hands.

If that seems too messy or difficult for your children, there is an alternative: Take your popsicle printable template and press it on the bubble wrap with the popsicle outlines downside facing.
