Please be aware that kids using bubble wrap should be supervised by an adult.
Let’s get started:

Step 2: Prepare Your Workstation
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 newspaper to avoid a big clean-up.
Step 3: Cut the Bubble Wrap
First, cut the bubble wrap with the scissor 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.
Step 6: Lift the Paper
After you apply enough pressure to stamp the color from the bubble wrap onto the paper, carefully lift the bubble wrap or paper.
Step 7: Let your Popsicle Templates Try
Now it is time to let it try.
Step 8: Cut Out Your Popsicle Templates
When your popsicle craft template is tried, take your scissor and cut the popsicle along the line.
Step 9: Attach Tape
At the end take all your popsicle cutouts and attach them with the help of tape to a string to hang up your finished popsicle garland.
Now all you have to do is to hang it up and enjoy your summer decoration.
