Indian Corn Bubble Wrap Printmaking




The girls and I made these bubble wrap
to send to family and friends that wouldn't be with us to celebrate
Thanksgiving. 

I thought I'd re-post this craft
in case you want to recreate it  with your own children or in your classroom this year. 

Start with some scraps of plastic bubble wrap.


Paint with layers of orange,
yellow, and red washable tempera or acrylic craft paint.


Press your painted bubble wrap 
onto sheets of brown, orange, yellow construction paper. 

(Brown paper grocery bags would be cool too!)  

Keep some baby wipes or a wet rag handy to clean up painty fingers and hands as you work!


After the paint has dried, 
trace your child's feet to make the corn cobs
and let them cut them out. 



Happy Bubble Wrap Printing! 

Fondly,
pink and green mama, MaryLea
