Bubble Painting

Bubble Painting Materials:
1. 1/2 cup water
2. water container (I used a deeper container so Caleb could blow the bubbles as high as he wanted)
3. food coloring 1-2 drops (go crazy with the colors!)
4. straws (I used standard restaurant straws, it would’ve been much better to use the really long straws though)
5. dishwashing liquid 1-2 drops
6. newspaper
7. tray
8. paper

This fun activity took 15-20 minutes.

Caleb used the straw to stir the water, food coloring, and dishwashing liquid together. He chose red for his first color.

He blew into the liquid mixture and bubbles instantly appeared. Sometimes, he forgot to blow the liquid and “drank” it instead. Not to worry, he spit it out right away. Hence, the need for the newspapers and tray to catch the stray liquid and some spit as well. Haha!

I let him try to use the bubble making tool but he liked using the straws better.

We changed the colors of the bubbles four times.
Here it is yellow.

Once the bubbles were high enough, put the paper on top of the container to catch the colored bubbles.

I couldn’t let Caleb have all the fun!
I had to try it as well 🙂
