With a loss at what to do, both the kids and I dug out our colour, straws and other creative little bits from around our home and set out to do make this fun DIY Bubble Art.
We are a family of lots of ‘Bubble Love.’ In the shower, with the tooth-paste, in the dish washing chore; the kids love bubbles. So this activity was a great way of introducing primary colours to my 2 (she’s almost 3 now) and my son basically, about art and some science on air.
What my son really enjoyed was that it was art without evening having to paint it. For this DIY Bubble Art here’s what we started out with:
- Acrylic Paints ( we started with poster paints that didn’t do well and
we then moved to acrylic paints)
- Dish Washing Soap
- Stock Paper or Art Paper
- Crayons/ Paints
To begin this bubble art, we started out with some little containers of water, added some acrylic colours, a bit of dish washing soap and begun the bubble blowing fun with straws.
Each of the kids got their own colour and straw and they had the best time ever blowing bubbles into the containers. They squealed, giggled, laughed and created a mess!
But they did get a bunch of some nice looking bubble. To get the bubble art rolling, we then took a nice piece of stock paper/ art paper and put it gently on the bubble and lifted it. This might take a little practice but you will get used to it gradually.
You will (after quite a few failed attempts at our end at least) we got some of the most adorable bubble print on the paper. We experimented with different sizes and shapes of containers to get a variety of prints.
The kids then used these bubble art prints which then the kids converted into bubble art pieces.
