Card Making with Bubble Wrap

This morning we painted bubble wrap to make Christmas cards. 
I pre-cut bubble wrap into triangles and provided paint and paper.

The children were soon trying to paint on the bubbles. 
       A different feel then flat paper.

As she was painting she noticed that the blue changed when she added yellow.
She added red on top of blue and noticed it change to purple.

             Lift off and you have a colourful tree card.

     The children were encouraged to print inside the card.
The words, ‘to’, ‘from’, and ‘Merry Christmas’ were available
              for the children to copy if they wished.
