There sure are a whole bunch of uses for bubble wrap aside from the typical and expected. We all know the two main uses: protecting valuable items when moving, packing and storing and then, once unwrapped, the joyous popping of the bubble wrap. Itís the many other ideas and uses besides those two that are in question!

Insulation: This one was found on several sources for quite a few items. It makes sense as bubble wrap follows the basic concept of insulation; a layer of air between the cold and what one desires to keep warm.  The best and most comprehensive instructions have been found here. Apparently bubble wrap can be used for insulation for: plants, motor homes, freezers, greenhouses, dog houses, coffee cups, windows, etc.

Padding: Maybe it does not seem like the most creative use, but the creativity comes from what is padded. We have found suggestions such as bicycle seats, chairs, bleachers at football, toilets, games, car seats ( specifically Pintos), as a camping mattress, and extra guest bed, boat seats, and on a babies changing table. At least on a changing table, the disposable aspect makes sense.
Along with padding ones bum and as helpful sleeping additions, it is said that one can line their body parts with bubble wrap inorder to protect oneself from injury during snowboarding.
Then there are many uses, so it seems, for bubble wrap wardrobes. Apparently with Bubble wrap and tape, one does not require actual fabric.  Suggestions have included a tie, a formal dress, bubble shoes, Halloween costumes, swim suits  & pillowcases. Here are some great pictures of Bubble Wrap Fashion.
As mentioned, the fun of bubble wrap is the popping. Other recreation uses include: using bubble wrap as a volley ball net. It is suggested to also make a ball. Making bath and pool toys out of bubble wrap. Lining the road with bubble wrap and letting kids ride bikes on it is a fun idea. As is lining the kids with bubble wrap and letting them go at each other. Perhaps that could be used as a form of therapy or anger management as well? Bubble Wrap Twister puts a new spin on a classic.
Bubble wrap protective qualities also lend themselves to placing the bubble wrap on the ground and having the tell tale pop sound alert one to : Kids taking cars without permission, burglars breaking into homes, and keeping pesky brothers and sisters out of one’s room. It could also be used to alert parents of when kids are breaking curfew in the middle of the night. That idea would probably only work once.
There are many ideas for Bubble Wrap inspired art and crafts. We have found Bubble Wrap Candles, Bubble Wrap textured felt,  Bubble Wrap rubbing, a Bubble Wrap octopus , hand bags, and invitations. Now that’s pop art!
Honorable mentions go to:
  • lining the refrigerator vegetable drawers with bubble wrap to keep fruits from bruising.
  • Making a cell phone cover.
  • Using Bubble Wrap instead of Easter grass in the kids’ baskets.
  • Putting a layer over the TV screen to make things look trippy.
  • Using it as a bath pillow
 No matter how you pop it.. bubble wrap does deserve mention as “1000 Awesome Things” and if you really really like bubble wrap then there are actual groups of folks that openly claim “I like playing with Bubble Wrap” Yiou can read the true stories form the hundreds of folks who are proud to admit to it. It also inspired Bubble Wrap poem and  a Bubble Wrap song .
