Mondays with Mrs. Sparkles: Bubble Wrap Fun with Kids
More often than not, being inspired is the roadblock to being creative. How do we get started? How can we help our children be creative? Ideas can come from anywhere. For this Monday’s creative prompt, inspiration came by way of a visit to both Nelligan Hall art studios in Portland and through a visit to the Louisville Visual Art Association. A theme emerged – bubble wrap!
My daughter rediscovered her passion for popping those delightful air filled pockets. She popped away, keeping herself and her brother entertained while I collected art materials at Nelligan Hall for a project I am working on with Wheatley Elementary and LVAA.
The theme continued when we came upon the artwork of Kentucky artist Keith Linton at the Louisville Visual Art Association’s Water Tower Regional art exhibit over the weekend. His work mixes media and brings to life manufactured materials like bubble wrap and Styrofoam. Check out his work by visiting his website or stop by the Water Tower to see it in its real form.
Bubble wrap… what can you create with it?
