Bubble Painting

When we made this art project for the first time, I thought it would be a great for the little guy to use a straw to make bubbles in small bowls and then we could press the paper on top. But straws to him meant taking a drink of something, and let’s just say it did not end well.

So instead of having him blow bubbles with a straw into a bowl, I grabbed all the wands so he could just dip those into the bubble paint solution and blow bubbles onto the paper. This way is a little bit on the messy side, but so much safer for the little ones who might accidentally drink the solution when using straws.


non-toxic tempera paint

bubble solution

bubble wands or plastic straws

cups or small bowls

construction paper or cardstock



Add three tablespoons of bubble solution and two tablespoons of paint to a cup.

Mix the paint and bubble solution together.

Place a piece of paper on the grass or a table.

Dip the bubble wand or a straw into the bubble paint and then blow out bubbles so they land on the paper.

Allow to dry before hanging up the colorful bubble paintings!
