Bubble Painting - An Easy Art Project for Kids
We filled four cereal bowls with 1/2 cup water each. We then added a few drops of soap and 15 drops of food coloring to each one. We just used the four colors that came in the food coloring box. The boys each got a straw, mixed the color up in the bowl and then blew through the straw to fill the bowl with bubbles.
My 11-year-old's finished project.
This is the one my 9-year-old completed.
A few final thoughts on this project -
This was fun and easy - but messy. When the boys were done with their bubble painting, they asked if they could keep playing with the bubbles. I let them, and they had a ball, but when they were done, my table, and my boys had a lot of the colorful bubble solution on them. It was fine though. It wiped right off my table; and the boys and their clothes all came clean with a little washing. However, take necessary precautions if you are worried about getting food coloring on anything.
If you are doing this with little ones, you might want to practice blowing through the straw in water before blowing in the bubble solution, so they don't accidentally suck the solution up through the straw.
I pinned this bubble painting idea from Housing a Forest. Definitely worth checking out. It is such a great idea and a total hit with my kids.
