With a set up time of less than five minutes, these Bubble Wrap Stamps kept toddler Cakes entertained for hours. She loved them!
Perfect for tiny hands to hold, Cakes didn’t waste any time exploring the capabilities of the bubble wrap stamps. She tried light stamps, firm stamps, small amounts of paint and huge splodges of multiple colours.
Free to explore, Cakes was absorbed from start to finish as her mind whirled away, switching between little artist to scientist – an aspect of process art that I love to see.
Using just a few materials, this is a great activity for at home or within the classroom.

Present your arty kids with paint, the bubble wrap stamps and paper, and take a big step back!
Bubble wrap is an incredibly tactile material to use and as you can see, Cakes loved to hold and touch the bubbles. She was intrigued by their texture and the prints they made, with each looking and feeling slightly different depending on the amount of force she applied.
For toddlers who are wanting to ‘do stuff’, bubble wrap stamps couldn’t be more perfect for their stage of development. It’s also great if you have multiple children of various ages. My five year old recently used this technique to create home made wrapping paper and then scales on her crocodile painting!
I hope your children enjoy exploring bubble wrap as much as Cakes!
