Easy Bubble Wrap Kid-Made Christmas Ornament

Easy Bubble Wrap Kid Made Christmas Ornament from Lalymom

Today we are joining with Mama Miss and a huge group of lovely bloggers for the 20 Days of Kid-Made Ornaments Series. Our ornament is pretty easy to make but I did have to try out several different combinations of paint and markers to get it right!

To start I took some bubble wrap and did my test patches. I tried Crayola washable markers and they were streaky and wet on the plastic. I tried washable finger paints but they dried very matte and flaked off after they dried. I tried sharpie permanent markers and they dried nicely. I like them for the green of the tree. Then I tried the other colors of the sharpies to color some ornaments on the bubble side and they were too translucent, I didn't think they stood out enough. Luckily I had some permanent paint markers left from our Father's Day Mugs. The silver and gold markers were just the thing to color each of the bubbles to make ornaments on the tree!

So there you have it, and here is how to make one of your own. Please use your best judgment as to which steps your child can do- with or without help! I recommend you supervise the use of these materials the whole time- they are permanent markers.
