Colored bubbles and paper can make an easy art project that is fun to make and beautiful too.
To make easy art with bubbles, you will need:
- Large sheet(s) of white paper
- Masking tape
- Food colouring
- Bubble soap (See our DIY Bubble Mix Recipe or DIY Baby Bath Bubble Solution recipe for bubble soap)
- Bubble blowing wands.
Set up the invitation to play with bubbles:
- Tape a large sheet of paper somewhere so that it’s at your child’s height. (I placed our broom across a gap between our garden hedges and taped paper onto the hanging broom).
- Make coloured bubble solution by mixing a small amount of food colouring into the bubble soap. Be warned that food colouring may stain, so it may be wise for children to wear protective clothing or clothing that you don’t mind getting stained.
Notes from the trenches:
- The stronger the bubble solution, the better; (or you may end up with many ‘spray’ splats from failed bubbles).
- This is a great group activity. The boys really enjoyed working together making art; that alone is priceless.
Finding creative ways to make art will inspire children and spark their imagination.
