In case you missed it, this past Monday was Bubble Wrap Appreciation Day!
Here’s how it all went down: In 1957, two New Jersey engineers were trying to make a plastic wallpaper with a paper backing for “a trendy new textured wallpaper.”
It obviously never caught on, but they realized their “invention” could be used to cushion things that were being packed, and thus, Bubble Wrap was born!
Fast forward to this past Monday, when over 300 teens at a New Jersey High School teamed up to set a new bubble wrap record.
Students at Hawthorne High School broke the world record for the most people popping bubble wrap at the same time!
What did they have to do to break the record?
A total of 336 students popped over eight-thousand square feet or bubble wrap in two-minutes! The event was held Monday to celebrate Bubble Wrap Appreciation Day, while also raising money for Sandy Hook Elementary School.
