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!One of the activities we’ve discovered is bubble art. It doesn’t take many materials or long to set up and will have your kids thrilled to play! 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!
– 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.
