Anna of The Lawrence Girls and Daddy, has three crafty girls. The stories of their lives and interactions has me laughing almost every time I read her blog! In 2-3 weeks our little girl will arrive and I am both terrified and curious what life with three girls is like – curious, read her blog! Till then, Anna and her girls had a recent craft project – blowing bubbles and making art! What a great combination! We did bubble art last summer, but used cups. I know my kids would probably have preferred the true “bubble” method! Ready for some very messy, very fun bubbles turned painting project? Thanks Anna for a great guest post!
Grab 4 bottles of bubbles and food coloring. I was fortunate enough to satisfy my obsessive nature by matching my dye to the bottles. You don’t have to be so picky!
Open the bubbles and squirt half a bottle of coloring into each bubble container. I didn’t take this task outside. It’s messy, so you should go outside before you squirt food coloring all over your dining room table!
Speaking of messy: do you have an art easel taking up too much room inside? If you want to make your deck the coolest place on the block, move it outside for the Summer! It’s so much easier to clean up paints and chalk dust, and we end up doing tons more artwork if I know we aren’t going to make the house a disaster. We have these:
Back to the bubble paint: take out the wands and change the kiddies into old clothes. The goal is to blow bubbles aimed at the paper, and when the bubble pops it leaves a great design. My kids thought it would be better to take the Jackson Pollock route.
Looks like they had a blast! Thanks again, Lawrence Girls and Daddy Too for a fun craft idea!
