My preschooler loves bubble gum, as most kids do. She is great about not swallowing it so I let her have it as an occasional treat with me. She recently learned how to blow a bubble which has made for lots of excitement. 🙂 Since we have been practicing counting up to 20, I thought it would be fun to make a bubble gum machine craft for her to practice her counting.
Supplies you will need:
red and gray cardstock paper
1. Start by cutting out the pieces you’ll need for your bubble gum machine from your red and gray cardstock paper. From your red paper you’ll need a base, a square for the bubble gum dispenser, an oval-type shape for the top and circle. From your gray you’ll need a circle.
2. Attach all the pieces to your paper plate with a stapler or glue.
3. Place your round stickers inside your bubble gum machine. I had my daughter put 20 stickers inside her machine because we’ve been working on our numbers up to 20. I also had her practice writing the number 20 inside the gray circle. It turned out to be such a simple and fun craft.
