a wicked kid's craft
a quick and cool craft for most ages. i've done this with 2 year olds to 10.
With bubble wrap facing up, place sheet of paper under to show approx painting area.
Paint the bubbles however you like. (You might have to explain that the paint won't stay on the plastic perfectly like it would on paper).
Pull out the paper and carefully lay it on the paint. Gently smooth (don't pop the bubbles!) the paper down then peel paper back.
