How we did it:
- acrylic paint
- dish soap
- white paper
The first step we did was to mix a tablespoon of dish soap, 2 table spoons of paint, and 1 cup of cold water into a mason jar.
Then Jackson shook the jar and made sure that all the paint and soap were mixed together.
We repeated the above steps using different colors. We decided to use the three primary colors of red, blue, and yellow for our bubble art.
Then Jackson's responsible friend Dan helped pour the bubble paint into the containers.
Once the paint was in the bowls everyone took turns blowing bubbles. It is important that you tell your kids to blow and not suck. My daughter Clare found out the hard way that paint and bubbles doesn't taste very good.
Once your bubbles begin to rise above the edge of your dish, you can place your sheet of paper on the bubble. You will see a very unique and interesting pattern. Jackson used the same piece multiple times with different colors until he got it just how he wanted it.
Creating bubble art is a great way to help your little ones experiment with different ways to make art. I would recommend doing this craft outside or on some newspaper because it can get a little messy, but that is half the fun! I hope that your child enjoys making their very own bubble art.
