Summer Crafts | Bubble Art

We are always thinking of and researching new ways to use paint! Every kid loves to paint but after a while it can become about as exciting as a blank piece of paper and some crayons. For those of you who have kids that are not content sitting quietly coloring or painting for an extended period of time (which I am sure none of you can relate), we have discovered that there are many activities that transform a normal activity into something much more fun and exciting!

This craft can be done indoors or outside but may be a little messy so if it’s nice outside- you may want to find space in the grass or on the driveway!
 
Here’s what you’ll need:
– white construction paper
– ¼ cup of paint (acrylic paint works great)
– distilled water
– dawn dish soap – pie tin – straws

Mix 1 cup of distilled water and 2 tablespoons of dish soap.
Add ½ cup of any color paint you like. You can repeat to make multiple colors in separate bowls.
Mix the solution really well.
Dump about ½ inch of the bubble paint solution into a clean pie tin.
 
Once this is done, we’re ready to paint!
 
Have your kids put the straw into the pie tin at its deepest part. Gently blow in the solution to create bubbles and continue to do this until you have a pile of them.

Put construction paper on top of the bubble pile and hold it there for about 10 seconds. The bubbles will begin to pop leaving the impression on the paper. If you’ve made multiple colors, you can repeat these steps with each paint for a colorful masterpiece!
