Bubble Wrap Exploration

Bubble Wrap Exploration | Mama Papa BubbaSometimes, or better yet, many times, it’s the simple things.  This afternoon, my freshly napped bubba woke up to discover a new package by our door.  She excitedly asked to open it, not caring about which actual item may be inside, but rather which packing material was surrounding the item (both bubble wrap and packing peanuts are huge in our house).  To her satisfaction, she found a fresh new sheet of bubble wrap inside, just waiting to be enjoyed.

Elbows and blocksFirst came stomping on it with her feet, then she moved to digging her elbows into it and stabbing it with a wooden block…

Bead and TwistingNext she tried rolling beads on it (which actually worked fabulously when a good amount of pressure was applied) and twisting it forcefully.

This much fun from a piece of bubble wrap is a wonderful thing.  ☺

One thought on “Bubble Wrap Exploration

  1. I discovered the virtues of bubble wrap and recently packed it into my on-flight arsenal.

    Highly recommended for flights, especially if the kid hasn’t had much exposure to it, as you’ll get precious more moments of happy, occupied child!
