101 Uses for Bubble Wrap: No 48 – Keep the kids entertained
If you’ve got some spare bubble wrap and a bored child, then the condition of both can be changed in an instant. There’s a whole world of crafty ideas out there on the internet; so many, in fact, that I could probably do a ‘101 ways of keeping a child quiet with bubblewrap’ series. I did actually draft a first one, but was told that ‘Use it to wrap the child up and put in a cupboard’ was somehow inappropriate.
From coloured fish and beehives, to painting activities and the kind of jewellery suitable for the most glamorous of occasions, it seems there really is no end to the number of things that can be made with everyone’s favourite packaging material. The only limit is your imagination.
Then again, the chances are that in the same way that most kids would rather play with a cardboard box than the expensive gift that came within, the average child will probably be equally as happy – if not more so – just popping the bubbles like the rest of us.
