Directions to make a bubble wrap painting picture frame

STEP 1: Gather your supplies

Before you get started, gather up all the supplies needed to make your bubble wrap picture frame. You will need to cut the bubble wrap into small hand sized pieces.

Squirt a little paint in your chosen colours onto a small plate. If doing this craft with toddlers that are still putting things in their mouths you may want to opt for children's paint rather than acrylic paint.

Be selective with your colours. I think 3 or 4 complimenting paint colours works perfectly.

STEP 2: Paint the bubble wrap

To get started, invite your preschooler or toddler to start painting the bubble wrap. They can either do this with a paintbrush or by dipping their bubble wrap into paint.

STEP 3: Apply bubble wrap to picture frame

Next, place the bubble wrap paint side down onto the wooden picture frame and apply pressure. Continue with various colours until you are happy with the result. Allow the picture frame to dry.

STEP 4: Finalize the bubble wrap picture frame

To finish up this picture frame craft, help your preschooler or toddler write a fun message on a piece of white cardstock and then place it inside the picture frame. If they are too young to write a message you could write letters for them to trace over or add a fingerprint heart inside instead.

Your photo frame is now ready to gift to a loved one! This is such a fun Valentine's Day craft or Mother's Day craft, but i'm sure it would be a very much appreciated homemade gift any day of the year!
