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.
SUPPLIES NEEDED FOR BUBBLE PAINTING
non-toxic tempera paint
bubble wands or plastic straws
cups or small bowls
construction paper or cardstock
DIRECTIONS FOR BUBBLE PAINTING
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!
