The popping path

When my grandsons popped over to the preschool classroom last week, they found a popping path all set up and ready to go…

There was no need for me to explain what to do or how to do it, the popping path was an invitation to “pop!” and the boys went popping down the path right away…

The bubble wrap popping path had three sections. In the first section, I put sheets of colored construction paper under the path to brighten up the path a bit and to add opportunities to recognize colors along the way. I added some clear packing tape in places around the path to keep it from sliding around the floor as the boys walked on it…

On the second section of the popping path I put round wooden number disks under the bubble wrap so that the path would have a different feel to it and the numbers on the boards also gave us opportunity to identify numbers or do a little counting as we popped down the path…

And the third section of the popping path was just a strip of bubble wrap without anything extra underneath and taped to the floor…

My photos are a little blurry because the boys were in constant movement as they walked around and around the popping path. My older grandson would stop on occasion and stomp his feet on the bubble wrap but my younger grandson just kept on walking all around the path…

Along the way, the popping path would sometimes get messed up so we would stop for a quick second and to straighten it up and, if needed, add a little bit more tape…

If you would like to see a very short video of the popping path in action, I posted one on Instagram which you can see if you click here —>  Popping Path Video or below if I have things working properly…

Happy Popping!
