Make a Bubble Wrap Road

Make a road with bubble wrap and tape! Truck loving toddlers will have hours of fun popping along this super easy road - a perfect indoor activity for toddlers!

I'm putting away our Christmas wrapping supplies and discovered a giant roll of bubble wrap that we didn't use. I thought instead of packing it away that I'd make something fun for us to do inside - it's way too cold to play outside today! So our Bubble Wrap Road was born.

You only need 3 things for this activity - a big roll of bubble wrap (or any pieces you have laying around from packages), painter's tape, and toy cars.

(Note: Take care and test before using tape on wood floors. Tape can damage wood floors, especially if left on for long periods of time.)

I laid out the bubble wrap on the floor and taped the sides down with the painter's tape. I made a sort of U shape for our space.

I put small dashes of tape in the center of the wrap to make lanes.

Then I got out our big bucket of toy trucks and invited the boys to play. They loved their new "bumpy road"! We found that tractors and trucks with nubby tires make the best noise on the bubble wrap.

Of course there was plenty of bubble popping with fingers and toes too.

This was such an easy and inexpensive activity to put together - we will definitely do it again. I think our next road will include some ramps and we might even go up the walls!

  1. This is fun! I don't know a kid that don't like bubble wrap.

  2. This is fun! My daughter always burst them by jumping on it! thank you for sharing it with us #pintorials

  3. That road looks like a ton of fun! I would be all over that (with my toddlers, of course) ;-)

  4. Who doesn't love Bubble Wrap right - great idea and I can't imagine why anyone wouldn't LOVE this - including the adults. Betyou had a sneaky go too? Cheers for joining in with the Parenting Pin it Party.

  5. This would be a great way to entertain the kids on a cold winter day!

    Thank you for stopping by the Thoughtful Spot Weekly Blog Hop this week. We hope to see you drop by our neck of the woods next week!

  6. What an awesome idea! I tried something like this for a baby I was babysitting but it was our dogs who liked it the most, lol!

  7. What an amazing idea! I'm excited just thinking about my next delivery so that I can bubble wrap the floors! I'm always looking for new projects to keep my boys entertained, but find it difficult to find ones that keep them both engaged (ages 3 & 1). This hits the mark!
