I am soo excited to share with you guys about this craft for kids! You can make a beautiful fall tree using bubble wrap, watercolors, and a cardboard tube! It’s really easy to make even toddlers or preschoolers can do it. I think it’s a great art project to do in the fall or just for fun! Enjoy!
Grab any piece of bubble wrap, it doesn’t matter the size and have the kids paint over it with watercolors. Tell them to not put too much on or it’ll drip everywhere and not get as many white spaces between the bubbles. We did combinations of red, yellow, orange, and purples but they can choose any!
Have them turn it over and stamp it hard against the white card stock paper letting the colors bleed onto it. Have them keep painting the bubble wrap until their whole paper is full. Set aside and let it dry.
Once they aren’t wet anymore, cut them out like the shape of a tree. Take a cardboard tube (we used a paper towel roll) and cut two slits across from each other. I know a lot of teacher’s aren’t allowed to use toilet paper rolls anymore so you could just roll up some brown paper too! Stick the paper in the slits and you’ve got yourself a beautiful fall tree!
