Bubble Wrap Printmaking: Ocean Scene

The Frog Princess got the idea for this project
while we were making our
She asked for some blue and purple paint,
and printed some bubble wrap onto white paper.

Then, she wanted to add fish to her ocean scene,
and asked if we have any fish stamps.
Then I said, "no, but we can make some!"

I folded scraps of cardboard
from our recycling bin
into rectangles and we added
stick-on craft foam fish

I folded the cardboard back
to make handles
and stapled the card board.

I love this picture,
I think she did a great job on it.

Check out the
coral and sea snails
she added with my skinny brushes!

If I was still teaching art,
I would do this as a printmaking lesson
with some Eric Carle books
in a heart beat.

She sure did do a great job....I think I'll have to borrow this idea. I have a wad of bubble wrap in the cupboard.

I love bubble painting we have done some great projects... however, I have never had the brilliant idea of using foam stickers as stamp pads! LOVE it!

Heh. I use my bubble wrap for long car rides, BUT this would be a nice alternative. (Groovy project, lady.)

this looks like so much fun! my little guy would love this. I'm always hoarding my bubble wrap to reuse for mailing things...I've got to dig some out and let him get to painting on it! Thanks for sharing...and I loved the indian corn too!

It's a beautiful painting. Definitely fit for a frame on the wall! She did a fantastic job.

We did something similar after reading Leo Lionni's Swimmy. You cansee it here: http://theadventuresofbear.blogspot.com/2009/10/start-swimmy.html
