I'm always looking for interesting techniques and textures for my toddler to experiment with when painting. He was very taken with the texture of some bubble wrap that came stuffed around a package one day so we decided it would be fun to paint over it.

Time: 15 minutes
Age: Under 5's
Level: Easy

Materials
Paint
Paintbrush (wide flat ones are the easiest to use)
Bubble wrap
Paper or card

Method
Cut a piece of bubble wrap and lay out with some paint and a wide paintbrush.
Try single blocks of colour as well as mixing colours together.
Paint all over the bubble wrap.

Lay a piece of paper or card over the bubble wrap.
Press down lightly.

Lift off and have a look at the pattern created.

We made lots of thank you cards with this technique and my son also enjoyed squishing the painty bubbles with his fingers. You could also try decorating large sheets of plain paper to make colourful wrapping paper.
