For the beginner bubble blower
This art project works best when two people
are working together.
Materials needed: Tempera or poster paint in 3 or 4 colors, White or light-colored construction paper, Bubble solution, Bubble wand or drinking straw, 3 or 4 small containers, A teaspoon and cup
- This is fun, but can be messy! Spread newspaper around the area and wear an old T-shirt.
- Pour about one cup of bubble solution in each container. Add one teaspoon of paint to each container. Stir gently until mixed.
- Take turns blowing bubbles while your partner “catches” them on paper. As they break, you’ll get a design of brightly colored splotches! For darker colors, add more paint.
For the intermediate bubble blower
Materials needed: Drinking straws - Shallow tray - Bubble solution
Fill the bottom of the tray with about ¼-inch of bubble solution.
Dip one end of the straw in the solution. Hold the straw slightly above the surface and gently blow a bubble.
To blow bubbles within bubbles:
Remove your straw from the bubble. Make sure the straw is wet and then gently insert it in the top of the bubble, so it enters at a 45° angle. Blow gently to form another bubble. Repeat to form more bubbles in bubbles!
