Blown Bubble Prints
What child with a drink and a straw doesn't love blowing bubbles? Not exactly behavior that we're generally encouraging (it doesn't exactly go down well at the dinner table). Which is why toddlers and preschoolers will love this activity: using straws to blow LOTS of bubbles in soapy water colored with food coloring - and then making art by placing paper on top of the bubbles.
|Duration||Under 15 minutes|
- Dish Soap
- Food Coloring
- Put a small amount of water in the bottom of a small bowl
- Add several drops of food coloring and several drops of dish soap
- Using a straw, blow lots of bubbles until the bubbles rise above the rim of the bowl.
- Lower the paper on top of the bowl, leave for a second and then carefully lift. The paper will have popped the bubbles and a print of the shape of the interlocking bubbles will have been left on the paper. Repeat (using different colored bubbles if desired)
- This project is easier for smaller kids than the Popped Bubble Art Project on Broogly (www.broogly.com as it is easier to blow bubbles through a straw.
