Animal Printing with Bubble Wrap

5 Dec

This was our first Bubble wrap craft and after the Fathers’ Day craft, we wanted to play once again with lots of colors. Since Ria was learning her animals at that time, we decided to combine all 3 and make something interesting.

Thus came the Animal Bubble Wrap Painting craft.

Trace out the animals from the cookie cutters onto the white paper. (note: you may want to take a photograph before color printing the paper since the outlines will be hidden by the colors and it wont be easy cutting them out then).

Early Learning goes a long way in your child’s education and upbringing. Amongst the very important things to learn for a toddler or preschooler are hand-eye coordination, 5 senses, practice fine and gross motor skills, balance, and muscle development. A lot of this can be practiced at home with crafts and activities under adult’s supervision. Playing with colors, pots and pans, brushes, sponges, glue; reading books, pretend play, all seem like child’s play to us but are actually helping your toddlers/preschoolers develop their minds and bodies.

Please make sure all the activities mentioned in this blog are done under adult supervision. If your children are still putting things in their mouths, then avoid activities with small particles that can cause chocking hazards. Also, all steps in the articles that involves a pencil, knife, pair of scissors or any sharp objects should be performed by an adult.
