Bubble Wrap Starfish: 5 Easy Steps

The Bubble Wrap Starfish is a project your kids will love. I know the kids in my classroom loved it.  It's very easy.  Just follow the 5 steps below.

You will need:


  • 2-3 different colors of washable paint
  • Paintbrush
  • Bubble wrap
  • Orange construction paper
  • Scissors


1.  Cut a starfish shape out of the orange construction paper.


2.  Squirt paint color of choice all over onto the bubble wrap.


3.  Use a paintbrush to mix the paint on the bubble wrap.



4.  Place the starfish onto the bubble wrap and press firmly.


5.  Peel the starfish from the bubble wrap and let it dry.
