Winter is on its way and snow is expected to follow.
Well that’s what my kids think and if yours are anything like mine, then they’ll be super excited by the prospect of snow.
Unfortuantely, there’s a great big ‘but’ that’s going to burst that Winter bubble… living down south (U.K) we rarely experience snow!
So when it falls it’s a massive occassion, so we live in hope and maybe this year we’ll see more than a dusting of snow.
Until then, we’ll allow that snow enthusiasm to seep into our Winter crafts.
Kickstarting our Winter crafting with this easy peasy Winter Bubble Wrap Tree.
Isn’t it sweet?
Materials: Winter Bubble Wrap Tree
Let’s Make It!
The first step is to paint the tree.
Depending on the age of your child, you may want to help them out. Obviously you don’t need me to tell you that kid-made is best, however it turns out!
Just don’t worry if your kids version doesn’t look ‘tree’ like…
Next, paint the individual bubbles white – this is a great excersise for developing fine motor skills.
Alternatively, grab yourself a toilet roll, the bubble wrap and an elastic band, and create a stamp!
Simply place the bubble wrap onto the end of the TP Roll and secure with an elastic band. Younger children may find this method a little easier!
Place the painted bubble wrap onto the tree and press down firmly.
Remove the bubble wrap to reveal the snow!
Some children may create perfect circles, others may get a little smudged.
Either way, the results will be perfect!
Repeat the previous steps and fill the tree with snowy prints!
Another adaption would be to swap the bubble wrap for finger prints, lego or anything else that’s circular and to hand!
I hope you love our Bubble Wrap Tree and if you would like to further inspriation, check out our Winter Handprint Tree!
And that concludes our Winter Craft tutorial!
This idea works really well at home and be a great addition to a Winter unit at preschool or school.
